We're currently looking into this - for now, any regular poster who is unable to post, send me a message and I can manually allow your account.

not quite the same topic, but the slowness today is the absolute worst yet, and it leads to thoughts of not bothering to come here. i'd have put this on my own slowness thread but i couldn't wait any longer to find it through my tracker or any other way.

And we're getting spammed to fuck on some of the articles. I've reported about 6 of em.

Is the spamming and the slowness related? Too much traffic? Is libcom.org ever likely to be the victim of a DoS attack?

We temporarily turned off some of the anti-spam protection because it was blocking regular posters from posting, so lots of the spam that's normally blocked is getting through and we're deleting it manually. If you see any, hit 'report' and we'll zap it asap!

I don't think this is related to the slowness, which seems to be the performance of the various queries which generate the pages (tracker, bookmarks etc are generated dynamically, i.e. calculated by the server, which has finite memory/CPU cycles).
