Just checked table qa_eventlog and found dozens of SEARCH events, triggered by IP 66.249.78.148 which seems to be Google Search bot. crawl-66-249-78-148.googlebot.com

As this is not human, I do not want to have those events listed in my database (and who knows how enormous the data grows if bots visited my forum each day).

Any counter measure (but blocking the IP which is undesired in this case...)

Thanks,
Kai

THIS is the exact copy of my last question. I just wanted to check if q2a is *preventing* duplicate questions in displaying a warning. Nope, not yet :(
