You know anything about the downtime Hezzy, or is this the sort of thing best to ignore?

OH thank god it was just a ddos. I had a nightmare last night that this place just got shut down and they were trying to get us all to use that lab site.

[QUOTE=highvoltage;52131445]I'm pretty sure CloudFlare just kills the site if the attack is too big, pretty much just fulfilling the purpose of an attack in the first place[/QUOTE] I've been on their $20 Pro plan for a couple of years and they've handled some ridiculously big DDoS for me (sure their free plan will drop you, but you're on a free plan c'mon) - this is probably a case of the security level being essentially off, you can have it on high with nearly no issues and it stops the majority of DDoS. I also have a back-end script in my load balancer that automatically detects a huge flux in HTTP requests and toggles I'm Under Attack Mode on automatically and shuts it off after a specified time - works really nice tbh I don't think I've had to manually mitigate DDoS for years now.

[QUOTE=gastyne;52131331]Why is mod-sass a ban reason? Seems kind of ridiculous.[/QUOTE] To be fair, the mods spend time off their day trying to keep the place relatively tidy, you could at the very least not be a shit to them about it. Same goes for everyone really. Just don't be an asshole and everything will be fine <3
Shouldn't need a reason to know not be an asshole, really.
[QUOTE=gastyne;52131331]Why is mod-sass a ban reason? Seems kind of ridiculous.[/QUOTE] Sally didn't get canned for being a meanie, he got canned because he responded to a warning for a bannable offense by dismissing the warning completely. He told me to "step off" because (by his estimation) he wasn't the only one shitposting. Like, I'm a moderator. If I tell you to stop doing something, and you refuse to stop doing it, you're going to get banned. I could have just gotten him for the initial post with no warning, but I tried to toss him a rope. He used it to hang himself.
Being banned for mod sass is like being charged when you tell a judge you're not going to stop littering. Like, how stupid do you have to be?
Actually it's more like being held in contempt for calling the judge a pig fucker
Oh wow, I sure love Cloudflare taking websites offline to protect them against people who are trying to take websites offline.

[QUOTE=Zufeng;52132156][URL="https://facepunch.com/member.php?u=90512"]DireAvenger[/URL][/QUOTE] i was friends with this guy. he was really nice. the profile comments disgust me. imagine thinking being that edgy is funny.
kind of bothers me how it's the same people coming back to do it and over and over again too for what, 5 fucking years now? let it fuckin be
From what i saw,it all started when Craptasket begin posting on his profile comment. The aftermath is these edgy comment on a goddamn dead user profile
I played games and chatted with him on ts pretty often. Felt bad when I found out what happened. Didn't expect it at all.

[QUOTE=geel9;52132258]If they acquire the IP of the webserver(s) then it doesn't matter if the site is behind Cloudflare.[/QUOTE] It's not exactly difficult to do so either. What I find odd is now they're using EC2/AWS and not just firewalling using VPC to only limit HTTPS connections to Cloudflare. Completely removes that being an issue with zero effort and no additional cost.
We can't do the Newpunch rollout yet, I have to be gold for at least one day.

If they don't, there are plenty of people who do, and there's no harm in asking
