    Hey every one Scam.com is still alive

    I just checked out Scam and Scam.com is still alive.

    I am so happy to see all is OK and that Scam.com is still kicking.

    I have to add

    Right now I am on this site with one other person and that person is banned.

    This is a strange feeling. Lonesome.

    Hi Ghost Dog. I saw Pwrone posted in Political Chat. I would imagine it will not be long and everyone will be back posting on the forum.

    Re: Hey every one Scam.com is still alive

    So what happened to the site?

    It wouldn't load for me for like, 3 days?

    How come?

    The connection times out if you try 'www.scam.com' but works ok (so far) if you specify only 'scam.com' or its IP '208.86.2.178'.

    That's really weird, it's been like that for a few days now. I'm not that technical so who knows, some kind of name resolution thing.

    Denial of Service attack. They are rather nasty and We took a bad hit. At least, that's what we have been told.

    We have a mystery.

    Many unusual things seem to be happening at the same time.

    Keeps things interesting.

    How long does it take to get traffic back after a forum is down for days?

    I might use the built in functionality of VBulletin to send an update to your users explaining what went on, what you did, and that it is back up and running.

    Well, that depends a lot on the time of year and how bored people are.

    Some of the regulars that left are coming back and PMing folks to join a different forum. They will succeed with some and be brushed off by others.

    But I think eventually the traffic will be close to normal again.

    Good. I assumed the traffic would be back to normal but it is happening slower than I thought.

    Having differences of opinion and diversity is what makes the forum unique and keeps it interesting.

    Like Gazza said, we don't want a forum to get as boring as bat-shit.

    Sojustask, Thanks.

    Considering the change in management and the turn to the darkside, probably not.

    Well, I think we will manage without the 10 that left and I do know that some of those still come back here.

    I think Gazza said it best:

    First day back. I figured it was a Denial of Service attack. This is the first day I was able to jump back on.
