    I am glad DFI is back. Thank you admin and support staff. Even though I don't comment much the net was kinda boring without DFI. I say we kick the attackers where it hurts them.

    I second that, we were in the dark for last week and the only source of info was BR.

    A simple wordpress themed blog will also do, for the worst case.

    I don't want others to read it. A private group in FB or a invite only blog maybe. Interconnection between members and weeding out fakes among us, is important.

    This calls for donations by all so that we get better software and servers to overcome the scoundrels.

    Join the cause to prevent being browbeaten.

    I haven't been able to get on in days and it is choppy browsing still. Is there any timetable to when we will be at 100%?

    Completely agree with you. The solution lies with us. We need to act and take appropriate steps to keep DFI safe and functioning 100%.

    The heavy DDoS are persistent and Admins are doing their best. With improvement in infrastructure and other measures in time we should be able to bounce back completely (and better immunity to future incidents).
    However with the loons and buffoons after, one cannot completely rule out an attack and its impact.

    It appears the DDOS is targeting the homepage as I can't open that but can open everything inside. I would suggest making a portal so only registered members can get into the site. There is no way they can get enough hits to attack the site having to go through that bottleneck.

    DFI under DDOS attack. Service may be intermittent while we deal with it.
