True story (It's true! I SWEAR!)

Recommended Posts

At the old PlanetDescent forums there was no flood protection. A guy named Dr. Payne wrote a PHP script or something like that and flooded the forums with over TWENTY THOUSAND posts in only a day. That's almost a thousand posts an hour, if the posts were distributed equally (they were not) throughout the day. The effect was a denial-of-service attack that prevented anyone, including me, from accessing PD, for hours. The administrator, Tricord, spent hours removing all of Dr. Payne's posts and banning him. I'm glad this forum has flood protection...

The FP will hopefully keep some people (/me stares at BBG, Zaldron, Lüt, and ESPECIALLY Shotgun Bill) from doing what Dr. Payne did.

120th post!

Zaldron, Lüt, and even BBG would not flood the forum to get posts up. Lüt's and Zaldron's post almost always make sense, and BBG does spam a little or he used to anyway, but I don't think any of them would flood.

No offense, but I think most of Lüt's and Zaldron's posts do not make sense at all. That's not a bad thing, as long as they're funny.

Someone did flood the forums a while back when we were on the old forum software (which had flood protection as well, he just posted a post a minute). He was banned.
