I wanted to post the get out frog, but I would probably get infracted for shitposting because this is a very serious forum for serious people.

Oh, well if you found it funny, then I probably made the right call. Thank you so much!

Ben is mad because he's just so much more awesome than the rest of us, we just can't see it.

Every time I fart, everyone around me starts clapping for the symphony my asscheeks just created.

Check the twitter site for details. So far they are still looking into it.

Haha! We know the secret now. All of FA's problems have now been solved by unprocessed fish sticks.

That might lure the ottermods on the forums, but the main site ottermods need more than that to give in.

Fish and clam smoothies.

And vodka.

It's p common knowledge that "looking into it" means "sitting in the recliner watching Operation Repo with a bag of Fritos"

operation repo is possibly the worst fake show on the face of the earth

IT's a "reality" show about a car repo team. we've got Ursula from The Little Mermaid, a big bald fuck in overalls and a couple other unimportant losers. Whenever they repo a vehicle they always get in smoe stupid fights

I can only assume for the same reason that most of society decided that rather than contributing something useful to make their mark on the world, that it's better and easier to act like a retard and post it to YouTube.

Stupid ish E-Z and no hurty teh brain.

Absolutely. Is it just me or does it seem some people are getting shallower everyday?

It's not just you. Then again society in a way rewards people through instant gratification for being shallow. Getting rewarded for things that takes effort well that takes time. Seems quite a few people don't have that patience. That aside back on topic I'm sure the DDOS attack is being looked into actively. As per OP though, DDOS attacks are a also things people (some people) collectively do for their own amusement. It also can be used as a weapon to annoy or lash out at people. A good example of that is what happened recently to the Westboro Baptist Church's main website(hit by a DDOS wave).

People try to be happy that at least FA is not going completely down due to this unlike what happened to the site mentioned above. That one become unresponsive and inaccessible. You'll just have wait for the issue to be explored and cleared up.

Actually in a weird way I think it's both extremes these days versus a happy medium with a few straggling idiots. You seem to have clusters of people just growing ever more shallow while others grow irritatingly over accepting. Some seem to grow ever more extreme with their hatred while others make endless excuses for stupidity to compensate for the other sides disdain. Then again that applies to a lot of things these days. Two extremes of something stuck in the idea of being right and ultimately not seeing the wrongs in their own actions and just making things worse overall.

Agreed. At this stage at least, with enough patience, you can eventually access things on the site. DDos attacks, also known as ping attacks, are small in the grand scheme of things regarding issues here. Most ping attacks have to do with boredom and/or curiosity of a site's limits and what will take it down. A lot of people will attempt these attacks without success and no one is any wiser that the event occurred.

That's an extremely oversimplified view of things. There's multiple kinds of DDoS attack, not just "ping flood", and I can't really agree with your assertion that it's just a bored or curious user, or that a lot of people attempt them without success. Care to clarify or back up your claims?

can an admin give 'official' news???
A reason we didn't give official news at the time was due to the fact FA and the forums were both being DDoS'd at the same time. We have no idea of the "who", only the "how". And it was a pretty elaborate "how".
