DDOS is a troublesome attack to pull off and maintain for a long while. Cloudflare could be a temporary solution. But really I don't see how a server outage can cause that much financial damage to these mostly non-profit atheist sites

RE: Help prevent DDOS attacks on atheist websites.
Brian Sapient asked me to post the following on his behalf about the questions about website and server costs.

Brian Sapient Wrote:"In the past we have posted receipts, and very specific details as to how our money is spent. In cases where we are purchasing services to thwart attackers, it is counter-intuitive to post receipts and proofs of spending. I will also not divulge exactly how we are spending money, or hope to spend money with more money raised, for the same reason. If my history isn't enough to warrant a little trust on this issue, that's fine I understand. But this isn't the issue that I want to use to try and gain anyone's trust. Thanks to anyone who considers donating.

To the people asking about $3,000 in damages. I am merely trying to raise funds to have all options at our disposal. This was a catch-all donation request designed to show attackers that they made us stronger. That hasn't worked. As for Cloudflare costs, advanced DDoS protection is $200 per month per site (of which we have at least 3 we'd want to protect). Maybe that gives some perspective. Free service helps, but it is not a complete solution by any stretch. Our site is very 2008, it's needed an overhaul for a while. I only wish I didn't have to work, had three assistants, or the $10,000 a development company would charge to overhaul them. The folks who are portraying the cost of site ownership as zero are being silly."
