    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 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.
