    It seems like USMB is under attack like the big social media sites are. What the hell's going on?

    I'm just a little bored tonight and merely fucking with you.

    I will go back to English in the morning, I'm sure.

    It seems that Sunday night is a favorite time for these Chinese "hack attacks".
