It regularly happens that many page views are sent from an IP to Hardware Info, more than usual – even for very large organizations such as KPN, the Tax Authorities and the various ministries. To protect ourselves from (further) inconvenience, we are withholding this request.
In most cases, this message will disappear after a minute.
Here are some common causes:
- Proxy servers, link checkers or crawlers that are incorrectly configured and/or ignore our robots.txt
- Overly enthusiastic feed readers who request an RSS feed every few seconds
- Something that lies on your keyboard and holds the F5 button (for example a cat or headphones)
In addition to the above reasons, misconduct on Hardware Info is also a reason to block an IP. This usually concerns issues such as hacking attempts or repeatedly harassing fellow users.
If you see this message for a longer period of time and you do not know why, please send us an email. You can also email us for further questions or comments. Please send this to [email protected],
