    I've still been getting the 'server busy' messages all throughout the day and night, unfortunately. About 3 today.

    I see over 300 guests, but I think I saw over 700 at one point. Of course, if members are not signed in they will show up s guests...

    True, but you can click on the numbers to see what everyone's doing. If 700+ are just sitting on the front page, you can be fairly sure they're not all actual people
    Growing back to calf with hopefully some semblance of a hemline.
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness

    This is true! Most of them do seem to get no further than that.

    What in the world is the point of doing this? How would you spread malware, like Ed said, just by flooding a site with visitors? And why does being a vBulletin (or any other type of software) make a site more "desirable" to flood?

    I really don't get this

    And thank you to all the mods for dealing with this nonsense!!

    The bots are doing more than visiting. They are trying to break into the site to inject malware. Bulletin boards are prime targets due to the amount of traffic that they receive.

    Yes, LHC was hacked a long time ago. The admins fixed it.

    I was on and bulletin board which suffered the same thing. One day it simply didn’t exist any more. They got some of it archived, but it shook the community for a long time. Glad they were able to find a fix here as well.
