I think this site is great. It has been indispensable to me in my effort to master these things. Trying to destroy this site is not only damaging to Mark, but effects everyone here - whether you are here to learn from the experiences of others, to gain advice, watch videos, or just to look around. Truly a disservice to all.

I sincerely hope it is not determined to be the 'other' helicopter forum either as I feel it to be bad policy and will ultimately alienate their advertising base and member base. I hope it is just some inconsequential douche bag.

Thanks Mark for all your help to date!

I was wondering what the problem was, at first I thought it was my computer rearing it's butt. I'm glad the attacker let up on the gas, so we could get back on. And Hope they don't do it any more.

Wow...$100,000 fix?

That should be some kind of federal offense.

This is nothing new. HF was created because of the way this site is run. There were times when this site (Mark) was simply overbearing. I can testify to that personally as I was wrongly accused by him, of being a shill for a company I had absolutely nothing to do with. I've seen friends of mine get banned for these wrongly directed overbearing accusations.

Mark seems to have settled out a bit or I'm just not involved as much in the controversial subjects... not sure but the truth is, Mark made his bed. He is having trouble sleeping in it.

I hope this post doesn't get me banned. I like this site and would not wish what has happened on any business unless they did things that were illegal. Mark owns this site and has every right to run it as he pleases within the scope of law.

Hootowl - couldn't disagree with you more!

If you were wrongly accused, explain your situation, or lack there of, to Mark and it's done. If you don't like Marks site or his policies, then leave. Nobody forces you to be here.

Just because you (or others) do not like him, his policies, his 'what-ever' does not give anyone the right to hack his site.

Glad to see it's back up and running this morning - I'm sure Mark is working hard at closing the doors on the scum that do this type of hacking.

I frequent both main heli forums, and pleased to see that the owners/operators of HF are suitably mature to offer Mark encouragement and success in dealing with the scum hackers, and are not gloating as some have suggested here.

Do you really need a $100K solution, as far as I know those Cisco solutions that is talked about here is for providers or complete datacenters.

Today's good firewalls have really good protection as far as I know, I would probably hire a consultant just to make sure and look it over but a $10K firewall will get you far.

I am already running the best firewall money can buy. The DDoS problem can only be solved with a specific DDoS solution. This is a new ball game and not for the faint of heart. Someone is spending considerable resources attacking RR.

Glad the site is working agqain. Was having some withdrawals for a bit. It's a shame someone feels the need to do this. I hope this doesn't happen whenever there is a big event. Mark I feel you have the best videos of the events bar none. I always enjoy watching RR TV. Thanks for all you do in the site to make it the best. Chuck

No the IP's are all over the place. Until I install new hardware I have no defense against this new DDoS problem. Working with my ISP, I did NOT go to bed Wed night, thus having to cancel Thurs plane tickets to Orlando.

Mark,
Sent you an email on a system to block DDoS.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

If the DDoS attack is truly the work of competitors who have paid advertising and other sponsorship, those advertisers and sponsors should immediately drop all support for their client, and disavow any intent or knowledge to harm or otherwise shut down Mark and his site. Further, they should offer up the culprits for prosecution to the full extent of the law. To do otherwise is an implicit indication of their support for this underhanded tactic.

What has happened here (and still seems to be occurring) over the past few days is nothing short of domestic terrorism, apparently designed to shut this site and its owner down permanently.

This is occuring because RR is a competive force in the Heli market.
