Am i missing something? Is bitcointalk.org being ddosed?

I've received 2/3 different error messages continously today, and i can barely view any threads Everything throws a 504/ site is not responding error.. Is there anything i can do to resolve it?

( Last time something like this happend you were able to use another IP to visit bitcointalk, which was much faster.)

One of the error messages i'm getting ->

Currently using mobile data just to get through. Direct fiber connection often drops me out stating that it (bitcointalk server) is too busy. It's either that the site is being DDoS'd as hell again or unique users are browsing the site simultaneously due to the fact that bitcoin reached what was deemed an impossible achievement which is climbing to $10k in a year.

Either way, it's annoying. Maybe try again later.

Something is definitely happening. I think it's a mixture of organic traffic, driven by the "$10000 barrier broken by Bitcoin" news in mainstream media, so people are finding this forum on google searches.

But, remember that Roger Ver and co hate theymos, they must me DDoSing it to create maximum stress and redirect traffic to their own bitcoin.com forum.

Im getting this error, which I've never seen before. Presented in plain text and white background, as follows:

In any case, it might be time to expand server capacity. Should be easier than expanding Bitcoin's capacity  Tongue

Had several errors when making posts. Seems a lot of visitors on the site nowadays with BTC skyrocketing again.

That would be a serious crime.

In the United States, the people that take part in DDoS attacks run the risk of being charged with legal offenses at the federal level, both criminally and civilly. The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) is the applicable law (18 U.S.C. §1030).Dec 12, 2013

Roger and his Bitcoin Cash buddies are smarter than right?

This would be an unintentional denial-of-service.  Most likely this one.

It must be those damn bCash, bCash, bCash, bCash, jealous people, don't have anything else to do so they decided to waste other people's time.

It's sounds like a serious accusation hmmm ,
DDoS attack frequently happened on this forum and it must be for various reason they do it ,
Since some people find that it's so tantalizing play with this forum everytime the price of bitcoin skyrocketing ,
But i personally feel so annoyed with the error i have received recently , it's always shows different error like "Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator." And the other error is just like what AdolfinWolf stated above.

This forum is filled with beggars and first world's girls jumpers from third world countries, it has nothing to do with Bitcoin price, it doesn't have any impact on the market, why DDOS us? we're just a bunch of low life beggars with no income and no job prior to the rise of Bitcoin, almost all of us come here to post a bunch of useless and totally worthless comments to earn money none of us even could ever imagined. I'm begging you to stop attacking us guys, don't you have any dignity? I have no dignity but you are not beneath me, go jump some girls with this money you are earning by dumping your Bitcoin shits. no lol.
