My question is why is someone doing this? A DoS attack is typically done by someone who is pissed off for some reason or another. It gets my brain going...

Okay, that would explain why the Puppet Show has gone silent since all of this "server glitching" started.
She sure takes the "machiavellianism" thing to heart -and to creepy, obssesive levels.

I can see that. But she/he knows they are causing trouble. All i can say is who ever is doing this is being a real jerk. I'm sorry for my language but i'm sure others agree.

...You know the people above you are talking about "Charlie" -your friend, remember?

I wish we could have some sort of - moderators - but people who could prove their idenity too.. I mean CL D said he is okay with people expressing themselves as they wish but having like3-4 moderators would be cool if they still want to keep this ite.

Caroline or who ever is doing this must have serious issues. Not only are they ruining my fun, but also everyone who loves this site. I mean, WHO DOES THAT? I'm sorry if I'm not being nice but I am pissed. I would like to give this person a piece of my mind. A BIG piece. They are ruining not only what many people around the world love but theirs as well. Again, they are doing this to themselfs. If you don't like a site, then just Leave. It's that simple. I could do it in my sleep if I wanted to. MY SLEEP! I think others would agree with what I have to say.

All, we are sorry for the slow site issues lately. We have been getting a very heavy server load which we suspect is a "Denial of Service" attack. We've been blocking the incoming IP addresses as fast as we can but they continually change their IPs to get around our circumvention. I am working on a solution that will automatically detect and blacklist them so this problem will go away when that is complete.

Thanks for reposting this in here. I just want to confirm that we have been seeing a DoS attack from various IP addresses around the world. We are not quite sure why someone would want to do this. My suspicion is it isn't to be mean so to speak but rather to scrape all of the site's content. Judging by the URLs that they are accessing that appears to be the case.

We were able to turn on a feature in our DNS provider that will catch and block access from IP addresses that hit the site too many times in a short period of time which will stop the issue. This is a costly approach and so we will be working on a longer term plan to resolve it permanently, but in the meantime we hope this will stop the issues and let you all get back to using the site without large delays.

Sorry for not providing an update sooner. We wanted to understand what was happening and spend our time stopping it first.
