    Why is mod-sass a ban reason?
    Seems kind of ridiculous.

    It was a DDOS that lasted several hours. Likely rust kiddies sour about servers going down.

    Why didn't Cloudflare instantly mitigate it? Is it not automatic?

    I'm pretty sure CloudFlare just kills the site if the attack is too big, pretty much just fulfilling the purpose of an attack in the first place

    I've been on their $20 Pro plan for a couple of years and they've handled some ridiculously big DDoS for me (sure their free plan will drop you, but you're on a free plan c'mon) - this is probably a case of the security level being essentially off, you can have it on high with nearly no issues and it stops the majority of DDoS.

    I also have a back-end script in my load balancer that automatically detects a huge flux in HTTP requests and toggles I'm Under Attack Mode on automatically and shuts it off after a specified time - works really nice tbh I don't think I've had to manually mitigate DDoS for years now. If garry/robotboy are interested hit me up on steam/email fam

    To be fair, the mods spend time off their day trying to keep the place relatively tidy, you could at the very least not be a shit to them about it.

    Same goes for everyone really. Just don't be an asshole and everything will be fine <3

    Sally didn't get canned for being a meanie, he got canned because he responded to a warning for a bannable offense by dismissing the warning completely. He told me to "step off" because (by his estimation) he wasn't the only one shitposting.

    Like, I'm a moderator. If I tell you to stop doing something, and you refuse to stop doing it, you're going to get banned. I could have just gotten him for the initial post with no warning, but I tried to toss him a rope. He used it to hang himself.

    Being banned for mod sass is like being charged when you tell a judge you're not going to stop littering. Like, how stupid do you have to be?

    Do you get sent to the mainpage when you open the admin tools because there is no javascript?

    php rocks
    that has nothing to do with php mate it's because of fucked up CSS

    If they acquire the IP of the webserver(s) then it doesn't matter if the site is behind Cloudflare.

    It's not exactly difficult to do so either. What I find odd is now they're using EC2/AWS and not just firewalling using VPC to only limit HTTPS connections to Cloudflare. Completely removes that being an issue with zero effort and no additional cost.

    I don't think any of it matters as the site hits EOL
    but honestly people who want to maintain the site should at least understand some of the technicalities.
    If they don't, there are plenty of people who do, and there's no harm in asking

    I think he was referring to why the CSS wasn't loading (the 503), but it still wasn't because of PHP
