First of all our apologies for the recent disruption. We have been doing our best to get the site up and running over the past few days and at the moment we have normal service again.
On Friday the 3rd we suffered a DDoS attack. The site was unavailable from Friday afternoon until Saturday evening when the site came online again. We suffered a second DDoS attack on Sunday, which took the site down until today. The second attack is still ongoing as far as we're aware so there may be further disruption.
We believe the attacks were instigated by a member here at SE-NSE. He felt he had been slighted on SE-NSE and therefore instigated a DDoS attack. We have identified a number of accounts associated with this member (now ex-member) and banned them.
