in reply to technical with IPs

What you might look at would be something that analyzed the traffic coming in, if you get 20 hits in a matter of seconds - perhaps temporarily block that particular IP address for a minute. I have no idea where you'd start with something like that. A bot will (likely) be doing something systematic and (reasonably) predicatble. It might help to try to limit (but not ban) that activity so you don't penalize legitimate usage.

Just my 2 bits :-)

    You'd have to be careful with this - if it's a picture gallery, a single user will appear to "hit" the site 1+N(number of pictures) time within a very short period of time.

      Very true.
