Sorry for the slows... I'm trying out some new caffeinated hamster feed, keep your fingers' crossed...
Please be nice to each other on JPR. We may get some visitors that we know from the old days. Use facts, not #%*^s. We'll boot 'em if they suck.
Site Voldemort has been hacked, user data may have been swiped... for more info, see Matariki's Daily Radical post.
Well. Here we are.
PLEASE CLICK LESS STUFF. Sorry guys. Site swamped. Very slow. More than 7,000 unique visitors today. Frank talk about hamsters coming soon. At least Putin is a man of his word, he didn't take us down.
Hey! Our site is overloaded with real people, PLEASE try to click stuff a little less often. And we're getting attacked by bots, but they seem to be getting stopped. Yes, some site run by three white guys is down, and it's Hillarious. DON'T POST ABOUT IT HERE, we'll delete it, it's against our standards and we don't need more traffic, honest!
To combat evil bots, we may turn on DDOS protection; when on, you'll get a Cloudflare page announcing you'll be delayed 5 seconds while it checks you out.
We turned the DDOS protection back off. While on, it caught a number of bots and things are working much better now. Let's hope things stay better!
We turned on the DDOS protection because something fishy was happening again. That means that you'll see a Cloudflare page that says "Checking your browser before accessing jackpineradicals.com." sometimes. It's expected behavior, not the NSA or similar.
Lots of traffic again today, and there may be some mischief afoot. DDOS protection turned back off for now, let's see how things go.
