FYI: Message board/BTD is under sustained botnet attack

Fyi - If you are hitting constant 'out of memory' errors or can't view the site: the reason the server keeps going down/running out of memory is due to a sustained botnet attack on our site.

We're working on it but this is pretty massive attack being launched and it's taking a lot of effort to sort the site is likely to be sporadic for at least another day.

Unclear who is behind this though I would say someone would need to have some financial motivation to be expending this amount of effort to take down the boards....

Best regards
