Holy crap that's expensive!
I appreciate your work on this site and I hope your major financial reinvestment solves the problem. It's a shame that it is necessary.

I would go for a Cisco solution. The above is way to expensive.

With RR being as large as it is and with the amount of advertisers you have, I would suggest {if you haven't already done this} hiring a very good computer expert to handle this kind of crap for you, someone to spend all day on the computer, they could even moderate also, {someone NOT in the RC hobby} then you would be able to go to any events you wanted and know that your website is being handled.

Personally, I think you are wearing too many hats.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

A dedicated human cannot mitigate a complex DDoS attack. The problem is too complex thus requiring automation.

That is very true.

But if the attacker's sole purpose was to keep Mark Ryder from going to a particular fun fly it suceeded,
However, if the attacker had known that you have a dedicated person other then yourself to work on the web site wether you were there in person or not then he/she might not have attacked.
Its just a thought

It seems like you work this job 7 days a week with an incrediable amount of stress to deal with, its a great site I wish ya the best with it.

And don't worry, just because some low life is attacking it, 99.9% of us will still keep comming back, we know the problem will get taken care of.

In the past several of the companys that made radar guns for the police were are owned by the same company that made radar detectors for the public. It was a nice business model where one update/upgrade forced update/upgrade on the other side.

Nice business model

now we have company's that make a big profits off of DDoS

Just something to think about.

In essence, it was extortion.

Timing= Orlando FF.

They shut the site down and removed you from the equation= covering the event.

They backed off..........no reason given.

The only thing that has changed is your attendance at the fun fly.

Terrible!

I'm sorry but I do not see the irony in the timing and lack of Mark's attendance at the Orlando FF.

I suggested to Mark a long time ago to employ (uncompensated, just a term) moderators such as other large, high traffic forums do, it's too much to take care of all by yourself, but he didn't want to.

Looks like this guy is making himself entitled to your time..

Hope you beat it.

Looks like it is still going on. Been trying for an hour to get on the forum. Wish Mark could fire an electronic bullet back at the attacker!
