The site may be down for slow for some of you.  I'm in the middle of a distributed denial of service attack wherein 100+ computes attempt to brute-force access the site.  I'm working with my server provider to isolate the issue.  

Bear with.

I don't get the point of DOS'ing a site like this.

Everybody click on the ads so Don can afford Cloudflare

Why are they attacking this site? Distributed seems too orchestrated for a little old writing site to me. It must be personal.

Quick update.  I don't think it is personal.  It is a distributed attack coming primarily from Romania and Albania. This looks like a script kiddie attack directed at the WordPress login trying to brute force the password which is what brought down the server.  I've blocked that, but still hundreds of pings to the site per second slows things down.

The part of a script kiddie assault that takes the most skill is hitting the CTRL and V keys at the same time.

Still having issues? Portal loads fine. Individual threads seem to be okay. Recent posts does not work. I also typed something lengthy up in the plague thread earlier, but when I went to post it, the website timed out and my post got lost.

Another attack.  I've reset the server.  We should be good for a while, now.

Is it just me, or is the site slow again? I'm having trouble opening some stuff and getting time-outs.

Go on, say it's just me.

Hi Folks,

Apologies for the issues.  I've  bounced the server and am investigating.
