Hi Lee 

Iain has this spot on in his answer 

There is a robot, chat room or similar that users can post spots from
they all come from the same IP address but log on under the spotters
call post the spot the disconnect this is now running in to hundreds of
connects and disconnects each one a valid connect and disconnect

So far the spots are all genuine no abuse just lots of traffic

Lets see if I understand the problem.  Stations are connecting to your
cluster and sending spots.  You want to stop them from doing this.  You
also want to stop them from sending spots on other clusters.  Do I
understand the problem?
