Er, FRDB. Sorry.

And it does sound a lot like Coventry.

Coventry, otherwise known as a 'hellban', allows you to post and access ok, but what you don't know is that no one else can see your posts. You are essentially put on universal ignore, without a placeholder.

can someone summarize what the heck you all are talking about?


There is a vBulletin hack known as 'miserable user':

Quote:
When classed as miserable, a member suffers ;

1. Slow response (time delay) on every page (20 to 60 seconds default).
2. A chance they will get the "server busy" message (50% by default).
3. A chance that no search facilities will be available (75% by default).
4. A chance they will get redirected to another preset page (25% & homepage by default).
5. A chance they will simply get a blank page (25% by default).
6. Post flood limit increased by a defined factor (10 times by default).
7. If they get past all this okay, then they will be served up their proper page.


Matty and rigorist suffered symptoms which seemed very similar to this whilst posting at Heathen Hub (a site a lot of us used prior to setting up TR).


Maybe it's just a glitch, but it looks like the little scamps might have done that to me at RnR.

Hope so, and if so ROFL

David


Go in through a proxy. If you can access ok as a guest using a proxy, but you can't with your normal account, then that strongly points to the hack being in use.

So what ever happened to that super-moderated anti-free speech site you were going to start Pendaric?

I'm sure your invite is in the mail.

Which ip did you want it sent to again?

Pendaric was going to start a website opposed to the concept of free speech?

Interesting, but unlikely.

I feel it more probable that he was going to start a website that wouldn't let every fool on the internet say whatever they want whenever they want, but that, of course, isn't nearly the same thing.

Everyone knows that.

Don't mislead people, Marge. You know it's spelt with a "k".

*whistles innocently*

Don't have the slightest idea what you're talking about.
