    look at the positives. When your post stinks to high heaven you have more time to reflect on it and delete.

    You'd think. But we have a server at work, used to run SQL jobs, and the disk drive is full, easy fix, you'd think, but just not a priority to the company right now.

    Does this host have a monopoly?

    No. I'm just guessing.

    This feels like a denial of service attack against the host.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    I suspect a ddos attack as well. It would explain the consistent slowness.

    The website now has a DDOS filter up, so a DDOS attack seems a fair explanation.

    The question becomes: Who would want to attack this forum's server?

    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    We don't know which other websites are being hosted on the same server. There could be something more high profile than this forum. I was looking up some recent ddos activity. Business Wire has been suffering from a week-long ddos attack as well.
