Subj: Why has Comicboards/TVShowboards been inaccessible off and on? I'll tell you why...

It's because we've been under attack by the Internet. Apparently either a search engine went haywire, or we were on some kind of Denial of Service list, but something kept hammering this domain with 10,000 identical requests per hour.

Fortunately, there were a few areas in particular that were being hammered, so I made them inaccessible. I also blocked several IP addresses from here.

Hopefully, that'll make the server more stable and quick from now on. If not, worry not because there are other measures I can take.
