No, we're not paranoid — or rather, we are, but they're still out to get us.
For those of you who attempted to comment on any of our Rants today, and got an error page, we just wanted to let you know that we're aware of the problem, and it should be fixed now.
The cause was two-fold. First, we got slammed by a bunch of motherfucking, ass-sucking, shitlicking, fuckwad fucks who should be rammed up the asshole with sexist asshat Bill Napoli's Asshat of the Year award until they bleed anally. These soulless fucks decided to try comment-spamming us with around 250 bogus comments in the span of ten minutes. Spoofing their IP addresses enabled them to get around our comment throttle. Most of the comments, of course, couldn't get through our comment moderation — but that doesn't mean we didn't have to deal with them, it just spares our readers.
The second problem is that our web host, while usually operating acceptably, doesn't have a fucking clue when it comes to technical support. Their idea of taking care of things when our commenting process began hoarding too much server time and bandwidth is to zero out the permissions and not bother to tell us about it. This wouldn't be that terrible, except for the fact that their technical support is so abysmally incompetent that it took us the rest of the day to get our permissions back so we could troubleshoot the problem as best we could (without a shell account). Thanks for getting our back, dickwads.
If anyone knows of a good web host with plenty of storage, liberal bandwidth and some actual competent technical support, feel free to drop us a line. Use of cPanel is a plus, non-smoking preferred, and must love dogs.
