    There was a LOT of coughing and sputtering yesterday at the servers.. I had to wait seconds for every character to show up. So if you banged on the site without waiting for a full page it's possible you actually did exceed the login tries. OR -- It counted the tries, but was too busy to let you in.

    It's that illegal operation that C-K runs in the back room. Takes all the bandwidth. Especially during sports playoffs.

    Not likely to spoof your IP Addresses.And with all the routes to connect, it's just not feasible anymore to use them for identification (unless you are a refrigerator or a car) And any psycho that's gonna sit there and try to block your login access for hours not knowing if you are coming back is too just too dumb to feed themselves.

    Probably just a slow streak for the site.

    It wasn't just this site that was slow the other day, many others were as well. It's a matter of where and when you're routed, not necessarily the particular server you're trying to get on. A slowdown can be at any point on the route, even your own ISP.
