    This theory makes sense.

    Lots of lolcows are on ED and they tend to throw shitfits about it. Maybe the blog was not a smearfest, but i'm not holding out on that possibility. Maybe it was a good writeup.

    Implying any of you know anything. Ddos or http floods would be stopped in their place by cloudflare. It's safe to say something somewhere popular linked to us.

    Likely, they show up like "ooh forums" and are greeted with furries, loli guro, and cum, causing them to scurry off.

    Just speculating, dickbutt. It's down to like 500 now. It lasted 5 minutes and there are zero new registrations. I would assume if 1ooo people were linked to us at least 1 would register.

    It may have been http flood, but only the first few requests by each of the drones gotten through, bumping up the guest count briefly. I'm not home so I can't grep the logs :(

    lol that wouldn't surprise me any other day really. I would think if we got 1000 hits in a minute that it would be for a reason though, and more people would register to comment on that reason, or more likely to try to bitch us out for whatever brought them here.
