So have the culprits been found yet?
If not...call in the Feds, they'd love another excuse to justify net crackdowns.

As a person who could be described as a little "anti-TA" I must admit I hate when the site's down.
TA please accept this as my apology for past transgressions.

Best of luck sorting this out. Keep up the good work.
I'm just curious and I don't mean to start an argument, only a conversation. Why would you be anti-TA and why would you use the site so frequently if you were? It would seem you're pro-TA.

Not sure if the Feds would care about something like this, but that would be awesome if you found out who was doing it.

If Rich, (or a select few) even remember, I've made some negative comments about staff in the past (not you). Actually I doubt anyone noticed or even remembers, kind of egotistical of me to think people would. So yeah, I guess I am pro TA. Wow I take back my apology then. Thanks for the absolution Boat!

Thanks for working so hard to sort all of this out, your efforts do not go unnoticed and are massively appreciated within the community, even if select people bitch and moan >:|. That's coming from the average, everyday TA member, me. I can't imagine what you've been up to trying to stop these attacks, especially since you've never had to deal with it before.

I use this website pretty much daily, get the majority of my news from it, check every cheevo on here and I bet I'm not the only one. To be honest, there's probably many many people on here that use the site more who haven't expressed that they appreciate everything that all the admins, mods, newshounds etc do.

Big up TA :D

I echo the above sentiments - I also log on every day, usually to keep up on the latest news smile

Many thanks to all TA staff working to keep the site up - I hope you track down the miserable sods who presumably get some kind of,kick out of trying to take down the site

Maybe certain moderators who aren't on the site anymore degraded the quality of his experience on TA with their heavy-handed, unbalanced approach, but he still wanted to use the site as it was intended despite this.

It stands for Debbie Downer Syndrome. When someone has too much sand in his or her vagina, they lash out at anything and everything to make everything else as Debbie Downer as they are.

You're welcome.

I didn't realize how much my gaming habits have changed since joining TA until it was gone for a few hours. I swear that thrill of hearing the little "bing" of an unlocked achievement just wasn't the same when I couldn't immediately log on and see the changes reflected here. Thanks for the hard work, keep it up!
Sweet, maybe... Passionate, I suppose... But don't ever mistake that for nice.

gamer=Cooke4LadyByng]ddos denial of service? 2 ds not 1 the other must be for derp
Distributed Denial of Service

Sounds to me the website was being attack from more than one source IP address. Hope that clears up why there are two D's instead of one in "DDoS". I'm sure the administrator gathered the Source IP's from the logs and implemented ACL's denying inbound TCP/UDP traffic from these culprit IP's to the web farm at the firewall level. Good Job TA!
