comment Should I keep host name info for moderation purpose?
You don't need to find out who owns an IP to report abuse. You can easily find out which ISP an IP belongs to and report abuse to them.

comment Using ini_set() to change memory lmit for individual PHP scripts
The problem with setting a high limit in php.ini is that it hides memory usage problems that might develop in other scripts. If another script started using silly amounts of memory, the user wouldn't necessarily know this. By having a sane default in php.ini you can then increase it with ini_set() on a script-by-script basis only if you know there's no way to reduce the memory requirements.

comment How can you diagnose the cause of slowness for some users but not all?
It would help you narrow down which resource is causing the slowness (if it's just one), whether it's DNS/network related. Definitely worth a go.

Can you provide the URL so we can give it a try as well?

comment Will moving some ecommerce products from one domain to another with redirects cause SEO penalties?
I actually think this is a much simpler issue than the question it's been marked a duplicate of. You're permanently moving some pages to a different domain, so clearly a 301 for each is the correct approach.

comment Too many duplicate image alt attributes. What to do?
The images do have value in this case. The whole point of the table is to show 'yes' or 'no' values as part of a package comparison. With no images or alt text the content won't make any sense.

What is your question? And can you provide your website URL?

comment Google jQuery hosted library - is it any good?
That's a little misleading. Browsers download assets in parallel regardless of where they are hosted, but there is a limit to the number of things they'll download from the same host at once.

comment Which MIME type to compress? and what If I omit the `type` attribute from the HTML?
Well, it depends a bit on whether 'compress all' means literally that. But like I said, you don't want to compress things like images, as they are already compressed. So you waste server resources by doing so.
