Server Performance Issues
#1
Our server has been under assault from a new wave of rogue crawlers and botnets for the past two weeks. We have been able to block most of the negative activity but sometimes we have reset the connections to disrupt the bots when they take up too many resources.

You may notice an occasional brief interruption in your connectivity with our forums or other sites. We continue to look at ways to improve server performance and security. Over the past few days we have implemented some measures that should make browsing the forums faster for many people.
