It is beyond ridiculous to believe that a bot that is scanning the
entire Internet every day — and probably already published on
literally thousands of web sites that put up log analyses — is going
to find your single posting on debian-user and change its ways.

As predicted, you have zero interest in finding a practical solution
to your issue and so as promised, I am out.

I look forward to seeing your next try at this exact same thread.
