Andrei So how is Ele getting on?

Some blog hosted by Wordpress has seriously annoyed someone.

And they have retaliated with massive DDOS attacks.

Which means we can't read our friend Homepaddock's blog.

Sigh

Thank you for your concern - I'm fine although it seems my blog isn't for some people.

I can access from my home PC, laptop and my farmer's laptop but not from my phone. I can't get any other WordPress blogs on the phone either though I can on the computers.

I can get to my own and other WordPress blogs via the links in your sidebar too.

Someone whose technical knowledge is better than mine (which is most people) might be able to explain why some can access WordPress & some can't.

I've recently moved to WordPress too because they format nicely for mobile phones and ipods. Bummer.

I did a post on the problem. Inventory 2 from Keeping Stock and Adam from Inquiring Mind both left comments saying they could access the blog.

Obviously people who can't access it won't be leaving ocmments saying they can't :)

ocmments? Can I blame that on a DDoS attack too?

That sounds like a clear case of DDoC attack (Distributed Denial of Comment) attack.

Even worse, is when people leave comments but have been clearly affected by a DDoT (Definite Denial of Thought) attack.

We get those from time to time.
