I think the Title explains it all.
Within the last few weeks the site as been down about twice and I don't think I speak for myself when I say that I've had numerous log in problems. I find it odd. But then again I am odd myself.


SO, It ATS loathed, if so then why?

Yeah! I have been having slow response time or the website will just be done at random times. Weird. It could a lot of traffic from users and visitors. Just my opinion.

Thanks for your input. I tried logging on for about 20 minutes and the "is ats down" page said it had been down for a about 45 minutes.

I tried the back up forum and its getting spammed like nutz. 2 users are on posting post after post about some kind of pharmaceuticals.

I'm sure Bill/Mark will be along soon with info. Someone out in the Google-sphere said that Mark's Facebook page indicated some sort of server issue.

Who Is Responsible For ATS's Recent Downtime?

This thread explains what's been going on. These same people have been DDoSing other sites for a while now, but it's only recently that it has affected ATS. The admins are doing everything they can to keep the site up and running, but you can only do so much.

Thank you. I missed that thread the last time.

Give it to admin though, they do a great job of getting ATS up n running in a jiffy.

Ya, it's not lag, a tracert to the servers again shows softlayer as the failing point.

I dunno, but given they're supposed to be good at preventing downtime, they're seemingly pretty prone to it. Blackholing seems the only option that have.. at least from an outsider point of view.

Well, if i knew who kept doing this I would go out of my way to pee on their leg while standing next to them in a stall. They'd also get the kimish classic wink and a kiss. Yes, i'm upset, darnit. Because i am losing sleep over it. Lol. I read the threads to make me tired for sleepy time.
Yawn.

Yawn.

That thread doesn't seem to explain anything. The OP and the post you linked to doesn't confirm anything anyway and I can't be bothered reading through the whole thing to find conclusive answers.

Jealousy is to blame for a lot of this.

Pepole loathe ATS because they loved ATS.

Peeps get banned, they want revenge.

I think we should listen to Winofiend here and go Blackholing. Just in case.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! @ the picture.
If I had coffee in my mouth it'd be all over the keyboard right now.

You're right. Jealousy and envy do generate a lot of hate.

Where did SO say that? It can't just be one member... unless that member has access to a botnet. The amount of power needed to take ATS offline would be pretty damn huge considering the level of traffic this website has to handle.

Well, I certainly loathe whomever is doing this. I was in the middle of a really good thread I need to try and get back into the mindset to finish now. Grrr.... One those really long and involved, but interesting ones. Non political and all.


Then along comes the anti-welcome wagon to break the flow. I do really hope those doing such things are being pursued aggressively. Loss of ad revenue, it seems to me, constitutes more than enough financial claim for standing to it being a federal crime issue.

Just my two cents and precedent of cases with similar things in the past.

Glad it isn't just me. I found this site helpful.....www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com...

It doesn't solve anything but it helps prevent paranoia.

He said it Here (Link)


We have received some reliable information that a few people who were banned from here and GodLikeProductions.com for improper posting related to Sandy Hook were involved in the attack, and apparently are still focused on another round.

Oh yes I remember reading that post actually. He mentions that it was multiple disgruntled former members, but I'm still very skeptical... it would need to be quite a few former members to pull off the attack. I just wonder how "reliable" the sources actually were.

I did have to take a step back and ask myself what I honestly believed though, because SO has been very fast with his replies about the issue every time it comes up.

On the inverse though, if this was my site, and it was camped day and night with obsessive, skeptical types, I would also be fast to reply to keep the CT down.

As if we get no info, some of the members begin finding their own answers, and some of those answers are not usually very comforting.

So either you are going to believe SO, or your gonna put the tin foil hat on and come up with an explanation you think fits the criteria.

I am on the fences still, on the one hand, it is in SO best interest not to tell us we have been invaded by a botnet that is worming its way through all of ours comps, but on the other, he knows some of us can find the answers floating around the web, and will likely post it up on multiple blogs and sources he cant delete threads from.

So truth really probably is the best bet from his perspective.

Just my 2 cents..........
