I have the following error showing up in my log file:
> ManagedPoolThread #8 16:51:28 WARN Authentication on CES Discovery service failed.
Message: The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.

Little googling shows that it's somehow related to GeoIP lookup. We're not using any GeoIP lookup functionality though. Is there something I'm missing? Is there a config setting I need to disable that is ON by default and I just don't know it?
