Some fool spammed the forum.
Some of the server-based counter-measuers indicated this user was from the south-west... but the IP wasn't being resolved, so it's hard to tell.
One of the holes in this current version of XMB is that it still allows unkown IP addresses to access the forums. I took the site down to add this
functionality... but as you can imagine, it's hard to test.
Such is the price of popularity. And increased performance... I don't think anyone could have spammed us that much, that fast on the old server.
