DDOS attacks suck the big one.
Last Thursday WordPress had a DDOS attack. Denial of Service. Some twits from all over the globe overloaded the WordPress servers apparently because they didn’t like some dude’s political post. They suck.
They suck because they knocked WordPress out for a few hours. They suck because one of them used an IP address that was in the same family as my IP address. They suck because that meant that my IP address was banned from WordPress until today.
I complained of course. It did me no good at all. Not even when I mentioned that I picked WordPress over Blogger to avoid just such a thing.
I was told to get my ISP to change my IP address. It wasn’t worth sitting on hold for that long trying to explain to someone at my ISP why I needed a new IP. Last time I asked them to reset my password they reset something else entirely.
At any rate, thank you to those of you who emailed to ask if I was okay and for those of you who commented on my posts anyway. I appreciate it.
Hopefully now I can get back to blogging, without interruption!!
