    Saying something like...

    "Admins, thanks for getting everything up and running again - next time this happens, could you guys post a Tweet or something? "
    might've been more effective than saying things like...

    "The down times are annoying. Especially as there have been more & more of them in the last year. People come here every day & they get used to the site being up & expect that.

    ...why did it take 10 hours for any admin or mod to even acknowledge there was a problem?

    This site seems so fragile now...

    ...it looks to the outside like you're either ignoring the problem or that you don't care.

    Does most of this suck? Yeah. But that's the admin job."

    The quotes are there because "free" doesn't mean the same as "no cost."
    Except it does. That is exactly what free means.

    And I think we've come to a point where we all will agree to disagree. So unless there's anything productive left to be said....

    I've got about 5 more posts to make on this topic. How much does that cost?

    I um feel bad number8 for not wishing you a happy birthday. If I did good, but I don't recall doing so. So yeah happy late birthday dude. And I'm glad the site came back. I wasn't worried that it would never come back, but if it did I would be sad and move on. Such is life.

    I thought 8 might still be on vacation so I just hoped the whole system wasn't down and waited.

    Pretty shitty, eh? Curious reaction.

    Let's pretend you, me, and Skitch are friends. Every week the three of us go to Sunday brunch, and each week a different guy pays the entire tab. This week, you and I had to cancel, but nobody told Skitch (which is a shame, because this week he was getting a "free" lunch). Skitch ends up sitting alone in a restaurant wondering what the hell. Sorry, Skitch!

    Now, if he called you later and asked where you were & why we neglected to tell him lunch was off, would your response be anywhere near the realm of "Don't give me shit"?

    Why do you think what I'm proposing -- more transparency, better communication -- is bad for anyone here?
    Wow, this is a shitty analogy.

    Well that happened again.
    Quote Quoting Donald Glover
    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    Seriously, though, the forum keeps getting attacked and I'm still trying to figure out where the security breach is. The holes I'd been plugging were apparently not enough. If it goes down again, I preemptively apologize. I've never run vBulletin before this. It's a bulky system.

    In hindsight, "abc123" was a bad choice.

    From now on, every time the forum goes down you may as well pretend that it was deliberate. Every time it goes up again, just post "You know what you did."

    Could the security issues be coming from the same person and/or place that was messing with me earlier in the year? Remember when my posts kept getting deleted?

    I'm thinking this is all a false flag operation by Irish so he can fan the flames of user discord, usurp the admins, and become Match Cut Chancellor.

    I called Angie Jolie and Johnny Miller to help, but they just sent me a bunch of screensavers of floating numbers and a square monocle. Not helpful.

    The last time the forum was down, I tried to go in through a Google search to see what happened, and sure enough I was attacked by a trojan virus and redirected to some sex scenes countdown Youtube video. No issues as I have pretty intense security/firewalls.
