    I'm wondering if this happened to anyone else about an hour ago. I suddenly couldn't bring up USMB at all. Kept getting the error code that I'd lost Internet connection (I hadn't) or the site was down. Was it?

    I could navigate everywhere else, so it wasn't something on my end.

    Sorry 'bout that.

    The mods were discussing how awesome I am, and the mere mention of my awesomeness overloaded the servers.

    Thanks. I thought someone was out to get me. :whip:

    Having just read some of Gunny's lovely comments here, perhaps I wasn't being so paranoid after all.

    Ironically, not knowing what had happened, I turned to two other message boards where I'm also a member but where the civility is better and freedom of speech doesn't just apply to those posting from the right, according to the administrators.
