    Annoying DDoS Screen 2nd Feb 18 at 12:45 PM
    Just noticed this today. When I first opened the forum a got a "Checking your browser" splash page (with some words mentioned DDoS in small font). "OK" I thought, "They're doing something to protect the forum".

    I then went to reply to a thread, after clicking Submit I got another splash page and then a blank page! I had to click Back and then resubmit for my reply to go through (without another splash page appearing).

    Anyone else noticed this?

    Edit: In fact, I had to do exactly the same thing to get this thread to post.

    I guess it was only me then.

    Not seen it here at home ... the issue I saw was from my work PC, so might be something to do with routing as my public IP address at work is a non-UK server.
