Question Forum being DDOS'ed?
I was greeted with this earlier today:

Yes a heavy DDOS attack (1164Mbps) started in the middle of the night. My host disabled the server for a few hours during that time.

Right now we have some anti-ddos protection enabled, so hopefully that will solve the problem.

Damn. I thought something was fishy. I saw the same page OP attached. I figured it was site upgrades but a DDOS crossed my mind. Good thing for countermeasures.

It is the first of the month. I guess a jolly band of white knights have taken up the scepter and sword to prevent any new folks from joining, and thus protecting the virtue of the ladies in castles who will reward them with the sexy time. Smile

Same here, it must be attempts by feminist Mangina SJWs to shut down masculine free speech at RVF.

LOL. Wonder how many men the troubled women had to beg to "do something" about a place they don't like on the Internet?

Come on brother, there was no begging...
They offered the manginas a chance to grab some titties...

The manginas came at the thought of that

Makes sense. A DDoS attack is the computer network equivalent of a bunch of people yelling down others who are having an intelligent conversation. Fits the leftist activists perfectly.

DDOS attacks are the equivalent to a mob of peasants trying to torch a castle of a king they dislike. All you have to do is bring the drawbridge up.

I'm in India for work at the moment. My first thought when I tried to log in was that you implemented some sort of country-wide IP ban on the first of the month lol

That's hilarious that someone would take the time to ddos the site, glad to be back up again, I got a link on my phone saying it was checking my browser just now.

That's crazy. Nice to see that the anti DDOS protection helped. I saw the forum was down this morning and then saw the page that checked my browser to confirm it wasn't part of an attack.

Agreed as stated above, DDOS is a motivated response by group in particular. Time to put out some very touchy Forney style articles on ROK. That'll flush 'em out.

One thing to be careful of is that the site is secured so it's difficult for anyone to hack and get our email addresses.

Any security experts here that know more about it than I do?

Yeah, you just KNOW it was a guy who engineered it. Women, like, get bored programming for the most part...
