Today when I went to log in I was presented with the message you see in the screenshot.

Why would the forum software mistake me for the Google Bot?

I was logged out at the time by the way.

@Reflective - sometimes this occurs coming from certain sites.
Best guess is it happens when one of the Google services is trying to update something like malware or spoofed site info as you are leaving another site and go to log into the 'zine.
Sometimes it's difficult to break free from it but clear your cache, log out as the Google bot , go to a blank page (about:blank) and then try the 'zine again.
This is just a suggestion for a fix as it sometimes breaks free easier with just a logout and a hit on the bookamrk.
It's also been suggested it's George the 'zines resident gremlin but it might just be ghosts in the machine.

my guess is, locally, the server machine has a different IP address. What is the public IP of the server? I wanna see it

None of your business
