We had some issues over the weekend and some are still ongoing, and we're working on a fix. Thanks for the reports!
It was strange - I could easily get to my profile with the list of posts I'd participated on, but click on any of them, and got the above message.
So no - not a true "denial of service" - except that I was unable to read the post(s) I wanted to read.
Maybe they've fixed it halfway?
I sent a note to a mod this morning and minutes later it had cleared up. Cause and effect? :)
I haven't had a problem since early Saturday myself. Who knows.
Had this issue several times today.
Yeah. I don't really consider it a "denial of service." I've had it happen on other sites also.

Interesting; this was the first time I'd experienced it. And I have AdBlock Plus, so any humongous "TV screen" at the top was nonexistent for me.
I just thought the term "denial of service" was a bit odd. But maybe it's a term used by techies ?
Yeah, it was all that came to my brain when I started the post. Rough Monday at work. :-)
It is a techie term - but as I said - all that I could think of at the moment.
I'm learning a lot these days. Just installed AdBlock Plus yesterday :)
It is, quite simply, a godsend. :-)
Yep. Yesterday and today.
