Data Limit Exceeding due to Spam Traffic Excluded Events

The data collection limit in Piwik is about to be exceeded because there is a bot visiting the site and generating excluded events. There have been over 250,000 of these events collected in February. I believe that these excluded events from crawlers should not be counted, considering one of Piwik’s advertised features is 'ignoring spam traffic.’ So, I don’t understand why these events are included in the limit?

Also, why prefetch requests are counted into the limit? I think those should also not be counted if they are excluded events.

Hi @analyticskeener,

Could you send me your Piwik PRO account name/URL in a private message?
