We're still picking up the pieces.

It looks like our DDoS protection provider was targeted first, then us with a massive spike in a ridiculous amount of hits.

There could be some additional down time. I can't tell for sure right now.

Thought it was just me for a while.

Was wondering what I said last night.

Thanks... thought I was doing something wrong. Kept saying reset and white list add blocker after ats came back. All adds are running here.

To be clear, I don't have an add blocker.

Right under Abovetopsecret site says "you (infidel) are using adblocker use a white thingy (white out correction fluid?) to remove it"; I am so out of my league here WOOF.

I, too, thought it was only on my end or maybe it was slowing down (and eventually not working at all) because of the design changes.
Sorry to hear it was an attack

Wonder what the DDOS was for. Was there a topic that hit too close to home for someone?

Also what is up with the background?

I was caught in that one trying to post a new thread. I had to wait for the website to return and then start over.

I would be very suspicious of that guy that was earlier posting about making some significant changes to the site.

Lol what timing

Perhaps because I am on Firefox, I did NOT get accused of using an adblocker.
Just got the usual "busy, or unavailable, or is your Firewall on?" options.

Its probably ATS competition who spend too much time here and less so making their crap sites better.

Could have had help from the idiot trolls who for all they hate ATS cant bring themselves to just go away.

Either way its a sign that ATS is doing something right. You dont waste time and resources on something you think is worthless.

LOL

and all that effort, for what? A few minutes of down time....oooh, such hack, wow, big trouble....danger rebel shock!

What is the DDOS and topic too close to home? The background is not suspicious; I suspect just subliminal reminder retorts.
