Painfully slow recently. Reminds me of surfing in the old dial-up modem days from the 90's.

So it seems. I thought this was just an anomaly. We had an issue last week with some site hammering the ---- out of the login page. I resolved the issue but I think the host throttled the usage. I have a ticket open.

Had a number of servers overseas flooding the site with requests and as a result the speed was throttled. Sorry it took so long. I thought I had it sorted before Neuro commented on the slowness. I pinged the host and they responded yesterday but were of little help. Seems we were still being hit pretty hard by some bot. I believe everything is in order now.

Me either. I think that it is all automated and they just scan for installations of certain forums. There is money in link clicks if they can make posts.
