Well, at least until we're sure, let's at least agree that the cause is "unknown".

Now let this "unknown" cause be 'X'.

Also, to simply be 'optimistic', let's refer to this 'X' as a good thing for fear of being called a Negative Nancy.

Maybe, we can capitalize this 'good' thing as "Go(o)d"! Are you following me so far?

Since we all know that the origin of the word, "good-bye" came from a shortened version of the phrase, "God be with ye!", then this suggests that our ancestors simply used the term 'god' to also mean 'good'. Our modern distinctive spelling likely only respelled this to reflect a difference in pronunciation to distinguish between ideas.

Therefore, we have just proven that God really does exist! 8-)

Part of the problem appears to be that the server is getting hammered by numerous attempts at hacking a WordPress installation that does not exist. That's not the only nonsense going on but the sheer volume is taxing the limits. I guess it qualifies as a DDOS attack but it's at a level up from our virtual server.

Distributed Denial of Service attack. It uses a trojan on multiple computers to attack a single source to hide the source of the original attacker. A normal DoS can be relatively innocent. But the way this is done using multiple computers is purposely devised to make multiple computers do this with better affect.

Dear Mr Pyrrho

It is Matthew Ellard's mother here. My young boy has been tossing his food around and having tantrums for the last three hours as he hasn't been able to play with his skeptic forum friends.

Next time please send the parents of "skeptic forum playmates" warning of shut downs so they can heavily drug their children the night before.

Respectfully yours
Mrs Ellard.
