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:
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.
