Slow forum

I'm getting tons of page timeouts tonight - Mid Atlantic, U.S.

Is this widespread?

Yes.

Almost unusable. It seems to happen every month or two. It would be interesting to know what the actual problem is. I think I remember a while back there was some communication regarding forum problems that blamed it on there being so many users and a clean up process was done to clear out inactive users.

Another possibility would be DDOS attack.

Thanks for the reply. It was so bad I wasn’t sure my post even got put up. This board does have some wrinkles!
