I've been used this site for well over a decade and never had any problems but for the past few days I've been getting the bullshit cloudflare 'prove you're human' pop-up when it's never happened is something wrong the site?
Yup, low level DDoS. Hopefully it’ll go away soon enough, or we’ll at least get enough info on the bots that we can devise a firewall rule to exclude them without excluding regular users. I have noticed hat people seem to get less of the challenges if they’re using Firefox (probably considered a statistically less likely user agent for bots by the firewall), but you’ll probably get at least one per session. Leaving a tab on the forums so the session stays active through your whole browser session probably isn’t a bad idea either.
