It's under attack again.

Let me know if you get any kind of error message, or if it hangs: p@patrick.net

Of course you won't even see this if it's hanging for you...

Looks like it's coming from China again.

Not sure if they just love me and decided to start indexing everything on the site, or it's a deliberate attempt to slow down the site.

No idea. DoS attack message?

I would click to go back to the main page and get "Rate Exceeded" in New Times Roman Font on an otherwise blank screen and had to click a few times to actually get it to show.

It's a message the site gives if the same IP address is trying to make overlapping requests. That is, if a browser (or robot like the Googlebot) has one request outstanding, and then starts another, I'm saying "hey, wait a minute, your first request didn't even finish yet."

I have to do this to protect the mysql database, which is the weakest part of the site. But if the database has already been slowed down, your own request may take so long that you do then something else and get that "rate limit exceeded" message.

I think the site slowed down because Baidu started indexing it for some reason. On every hit, I look up the country associated with the IP address so that I can block certain spammy countries, and that lookup was pretty inefficient. With the additional load from Baidu, everyone started suffering the result.

I made that country lookup much faster, and that seems to have fixed it. I hope so anyway. Kind of hard to tell with these timing issues.

First is was "hate" speech, now it's "dissing" -make up your mind.

Wouldn't have anything to do with a bruised ego would it for calling out the obvious on the forum would it as indicated by two of the "tribe" responding in the post above ?


Seriously it’s the weekend. Relax. That much stress can’t be good for the body.

Damn right. Most of the regular posters are writing in the same style they have for years. It's the election losers who are having a flip out, personally attacking and then getting double flipped out when their posts are regulated because of it.

Not really. That was a good ban.

Continuously posting personal information about other users, harassing, insulting, derailing conversation with low intelligent comments, obsessed with the site and other forums’ “enemies” constantly online posting flaming other users 24/7. I’d say he was the one calling in fake bomb threat as well. He fits the profile of someone who would stoop that low.

Yep, all those new TDS threads have definitely become worse over the year. Seems some voters, over a year later, just can't accept the results.

See, you're angry over nothing (again). I didn't even know AF had a parade thread, and even if he did, I wouldn't delete it, I actually enjoy AF's humor based threads even if they are slamming Trump (who I didn't vote for).

How about the comment that contained no personal information on your thread about Obamacare? All it said was that medicare doesn't cover the same pool of people as does private insurance so it's not a good comparison.

That was personal?

Maybe Patrick can also confirm that what you allow to pass moderation can have an even larger effect on stifling a discussion than what you ban. Kind of amazing some of the stuff that gets by as long as it conforms to an alt-right bias.

If you leave out the personal attacks, I let pretty much every comment pass moderation. I'd say I approve 99% of comments that go into the queue.




The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should.

Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
