Recent lag - Linode being attacked

sup everyone.. if you've experienced lag/latency on the forum lately, it's because Linode (our hosting) is suffering a major DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack.

it most likely won't go on for much longer.. but 4 days of sustained attack is pretty serious.

pc!

It has become evident in the past two days that a bad actor is purchasing large amounts of botnet capacity in an attempt to significantly damage Linode’s business.
