    The best defense is a good offense against DDoS. New security protocol?

    I frequent alternative right wing sites, many of which are also Cloudflare clients that has implemented an effective DDoS defense, comparing requesting IP to DDoS bot IPs.

    The one I appreciate the most notifies the requester of the five second delay and with a countdown.

    I notice that forums.opencarry.org is very slow, and vb.opencarry.org is slow.

    Has a new security protocol been implemented by our host servers or by their client software. vB is very common software and I notice no slowing at less controversial sites.

    Or is opencarry.org under DDoS attack. I notice also that status.opencarry.org can't be found.

    At this moment, The Washington Times, the nation's right conservative newspaper of record is notably slow.

    Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

    Yes, I am sure. Thank you.

    Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing.

    If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.

    No slow down from where I am. Have you tried going outside and rotating your TV antenna?

    Are you feeling any better after falling off the bike? You need to start wearing your helmet.

    Please do not get confused between my personality & my attitude. My personality is who I am ~ my attitude depends on who you are and how you act.

    Gentlemen - please discontine the negative personal remarks. Even if they were not a rule violation, they muddy up the water and cloud the issue at hand.
