JU forum offline because of some morons

While I don't go to that forum at all as there is no useful information there, I snagged this from gryphon's post in the Mid-Size forum:

vBulletin Message
The JeepsUnlimited forums are offline indefinitely,
due to a "stunt" (EFFECTIVELY, A DENIAL OF SERVICE ATTACK)
perpetrated by a number of "members" in the OffTopic forum
who converged on a thread and attempted to create
"the world's largest thread".

As a result of a large number of repeated, simultaneous postings
to the thread, the vBulletin database has become corrupted.

Once the database has been restored, and the forums come back up,
flood control will be set to 60 seconds (previously 45) in response to tonight's events.
Additionally, the member accounts of the people whose irresponsible behavior
caused this problem will be revoked.

You obviously haven't checked the CJ forum there. Not as good as ORC, but some useful/different stuff either way, not as much attitude/bling-bling as many of the wrangler knot-heads over there.

Either way, sorry to hear about the morons ruining it for the rest of us.

Re: JU forum offline because of some morons

Last time I went there, all I saw for posts were "will 40s fit without a lift?" questions. It is too bad that the actions of a few ruined it for a whole lot - kinda like land use issues!

Re: JU forum offline because of some morons

Let's not completely put down JU, or their Members. In case any of you haven't seen John Strenk's or Bluseman2a's and Lynn's (They also post here) Posts on that foum you could learn a thing or two. Me, I drop in once or twice a day and have squirreled lots of information I've found on the site.

I agree that those who decied to make the world's longest thread were very unwise in their decision and actions. I hope that they've seen the error of their ways... and don't decide to do it on this froum. That would be unfortunate.

There are tidbits and floods of knowledge to be gleaned everywhere... you just have to know where to look!

They'd have to endure "LEVE's WRATH"![img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Can anyone give me more info? I don't go there, too much nonsense to wade through to get to the meat, but I am curious as to the details. How exactly did these "rocket scientists" try to do this? How far did they get before it crashed? I just hope they don't wind up over here.
