    I realize USMB does "maintenance" periodically, but this is ridiculous. For over a half hour, it's been taking 60 seconds to post something as it waits and waits and waits. Must maintenance, if that's what's happening, be done during prime daytime hours? Like 1PM eastern?

    Bot attacks.

    There are presently 778 "guests" loading the board and sucking away bandwidth.

    I've had no problems on this end. Are you having loading issues only here, or elsewhere?

    Sometimes this tool can help: Down For Everyone Or Just Me -> Check if your website is down or up?

    Sometimes you can find your routing to sites has a interruption along the way, not your end or the destination end. You can view the route by pinging the site.

    And that could definitely cause some people to have issues, others not.

    Isn't that the new anti-partisan horseshit filter that was recently installed? :tongue:

    Sometimes that happens to a cat, and it happened to Pickles.

    I blame Obama, Bush, Palin, Ron Paul, Mrs. Paul, Paul McCartney, Cartman, and of course Charlie Sheen.

    I think we've all experienced delays, but this was inordinately long, and it even timed out. I just ran a registry scan and it picked up some things, although I'm clueless trying to decipher just what.

    I suppose it's a sad statement on how fast we demand things happen these days, me included.
