That's what I'm wondering. It seems to just happen intermittently throughout the last couple of days. Seems more like a problem with this cloudfare deal and our server than an attack, but then again I'm a dummy when it comes to tech shit so I don't really know what I'm talking about.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I'm somewhat technologically retarded as well.

Or could I send sexy images to inspire our volunteer IT guys? I will do that if it will help...

Ironically that question would have to go to any Super-Mod or Admin who isn't me. KC and Aurora take care of any contact with Seth, DT and DL are our super technical team. I'm just here to make up the numbers.

Oh so you're like a trophy mod. Just here to look pretty?

Usually teenage kids. It may not even be someone who has a bone to specifically pick with the forum. Sometimes that stuff is simply to "get their name out there" and entail everything from DDoS to web page vandalizing. Some people literally just "do it for the lulz".. however, it's been happening off and on for a while, so I don't quite get that impression. There's a lot of script kiddie tools out there for this stuff anymore. Hell, a group of kids took down the entire steam store and crashed it from a DDoS with script kiddie tools while broadcasting their actions over twitter like a month ago. Unfortunately, since that stuff floats around out there, most anyone with a grudge who can punch some buttons can do it.
