      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

Afternoon all.

Can I make a polite request to you all watch the language a bit, whilst we are all big and ugly enough to know what is appropriate, this forum doesn't have an age limit , so both our kids and aspiring younger modellers get to read our hallowed words of wisdom :)

Just for the record we don't have an issue with lots of stuff but the 'F' and 'C' words - definately a no-no. We would also ask you all to refrain from name calling, as tempting as this can sometimes be ;)

Thanks for your help guys and gals.

John, Mike, Mike and Greg

Wow - you call that staying away Bob? 3 days was it :D

I seem to of drifted back into my old/bad habits... I blame Mike... It's all his fault :evil_laugh:

I'm limiting my time on the forum to only 23 hrs a day now. A vast improvement on my last spell... hehe

I'll be about, I've got to be... I've got a Rabbit to keep happy :kissing2:

:blink: Oh? Kevo, I used to have just about the same problem until I came up with a rather permanent fix:

I seldom see him anymore, but I'm better off without him. Thank God I don't ever build ships!

Back on topic; would Steve Irwin's "Crikey!" be considered a cuss word on here, Skii...?

Wotabout substitute words?

Comedian Michael Mackintyre uses "gazebo" to describe alcoholic inebriation as in "I got absolutely gazeboed in the pub last night"

classic!

Perhaps the bosses should put a word filter in, so words like s***, t***, or even z***** are automatically deleted or replace with asterisks.

Edit: I see it's already happening, for f***'s sake!
