What a crazy last couple of days. Long story short, it seems a community got banned on reddit (ice_poseidon2), set up camp here, and that attracted DDOS attacks. Whoever was doing the DDOS attacks found our real IP address and thus was able to DDOS us directly and bypass our cloudflare protection.
Then in another turn of bad luck, our server company in Switzerland basically told us to get lost after the attacks compromised their entire server farm. So after 36 hours of not communicating with us at all, after blackholing our IP address to save their server farm, they finally told us they were letting us go. Most of the delay of saidit being down was just waiting on them to communicate with us. So once we knew, we scrambled over the last few hours to get a new server, a new hosting service, and set up the website and restore the database. Thank you u/d3rr for all your hard work making this possible.
We're now back on linode with a better server at a cheaper rate, with better DDOS protections. We've had to disable all the potential sources of our IP address leaks, so this means that the following features are temporarily disabled until we can properly screen them for leaks: Chat, title suggest when posting links, user registration, and thumbnails.
Thanks to everyone for you patience during this attack, but now saidit is back and stronger than before. Cheers!
