You know, it’s a puzzle why a classical chat group would get a bot army riled up. But there really are a lot of Trump posts. I wonder now that you mention it if that caught the attention of some bot that then decided this was a political site.

This is indeed a very possible explanation. The political threads are amongst the most active ones (though it's been several years worth of activity).

The site loading times are continuing to be highly variable.

And now, coincidentally?, the bojo posts.

Not to mention the thread about hot, sweating, naked Finns.

Clearly these are parts of the forum I have not yet delved into...

The site is - rarely - fast, but most often very very slow, and sometimes even inaccessible.

I find it suspicious, that a large part of the visitors exerts unknown action. This hasn't been the case before we got these problems.

Wonder if it might tell anything to deny visitors access - at least temporarily - and see if this might solve the problems.

The sun does shine in Belgium, but alas, it still takes (often) a very long time before a page loads.

Well, it took several minutes for this page to load.

This morning a message to a member was lost and a sign came up with "You Do Not Have Authorization To Access This Page," when I tried to send it.

For the last few days I got access around 2-3 pm, not before. That’s 6-7 pm GMT time.

I was in a bar and asked the bartender if he wanted to hear a blonde joke. The room fell hushed.
“Well” said the bartender “Our bouncer Pete is blonde. Jenny at the end of the bar teaches karate, and she's a blonde. Ed by the pool table is a professional boxer and he's blond. I have a baseball bat and I'm blond. You sure you want to tell that joke?”
“Not if I have to explain it four times” I said.

Terribly bad since yesterday evening. After posting around 9pm I tried to modify my post for a correction, to no avail. Shut out until just a few minutes ago, past 2pm the following day.

Slower than Celi conducting Feldman.

 :laugh:

Right now it's faster than N. Järvi conducting something like Dvorák's Carnival Overture.
