Having problems with FR running slow. Any one else?
slow here in the big bend area of florida...
It is slow, CU is completely down, GP is sluggish, Disqus is going bonkers. So yes the DOS attacks are happening along with reduced bandwidth amongst other things to stamp out SanFranNans disgusting play last night.
No, haven’t noticed any slowdown- I’m on dialup, and it only takes about 4 minutes for the page to load- so Nope- no slowdown at all-
j/k I don’t have dialup- thankfully- I used to game online with dialup lol- that was an experience lol! Talk abotu ‘teleporting’ lol!
Vanity? I thought it was a simple request to ask if anyone else was having problems reaching the forum. If not, then the OP could have looked at their specific network. Since it is a problem for many Freepers, at least those who are able to get through, the OP has confirmation. This is the second ,significant forum slowdown in less than 24 hours.
Yes, this is driving me nuts. I think the system is just swamped right now because the acquittal vote is coming up.
I thought it was dims attacking because of the great speech last night
It’s a huge freaking news day, so of course it’s slow. Your post isn’t helping.
Unless someone has something VERY unique to say, stop posting replies.
Running slow for me, but, FWIW, I seem to have slow internet on everything I am trying to do today, not just FR.
I personally think it is due to the Russians trying to interfere with the IA Caucus results, before they are finalized. Sounds like they don’t need to hurry for any reason.
Very slow here in AZ
“Appears that way. Read something last night that FR has been under increasing attack because the Communists realize it is a major communication source.”
I’m stunned that doesn’t happen more. Especially as shrill and desperate as they’re getting every time they lose ground because of President Trump. Which is so frequent now it’s like a tuning fork.
Slower than a herd of turtles in an Alaskan winter
Yep. Seems to be as busy as a one legged man in a butt kicking contest with 10 kangaroo’s.
Been slow all this afternoon.
Oh, and Mitt Romney cannot possibly SUCK enough!
I see. So, we should all just be reading the posted threads & not replying to any of them today?
Is that it?
Yes, Jim and John mentioned this last night in the SOTU speech.
Someone needs to call the Government’s Cyber Crime Center and get them working on it.
JimRob, can you update us on the issues?
What is it going to take to get things back to normal? Is there anything we can help with, donate, dollars, anything?
Yes. Daily. By spammers who post clickbait blog stumps but don’t contribute to the cost of operations.
