Edited by fred79 at 13:35, 18 Aug 2021.

i am getting spammed with this snow like a mothersnower. this happens when i try to load any hc page for the first time, second time, etc. it's stuck on loop when waiting to load a page via the program/coding itself; i can only open a page by continually entering the address manually.

is val snowing with me, or is it the bot traffic, or what? it's only at hc that this happens, and it's only been in the last 24-30 hours or so.

is this happening to anyone else? snow's aggravating as all hell, and it seems to be getting worse. i get the feeling i'm being ddos attacked from posting on hc, and if it's not happening to anyone else, than i certainly am.


edit: it happened right after i posted this. the only way around it is by double-entering the address and forcing my way past that feature.

I seem to remember something like this happening to me years ago, but not lately. Did you try using a different browser to see it'll change anything?

changing my browser so i don't have to double-click the address for just one website seems a little much, don't you think? and not even that, but a drop in security too?

lol, sign me up.

For me when I click on a topic and while it is loading I manage to click another topic because I was too fast/impatient, then it gives that error.

Had a feeling you'd say that, which is why I said that you could try it to see if it even helps. You know, to diagnose the problem.

i'm good, thanks. if i was the only person with the problem, it wouldn't be my browser. now, if other people spoke up about it, that would be on the table as the source of the issue. i have the information i need by the lack of responses.

Because you are two stars. I haven't problem. Rarely protection, if I'm not busy, thus you can't click two times and your Internet is a slow.

because of this feature, the "go to post" option in search features does not work at all. it doesn't matter if you're logged in, either.

The less QP you have, the more you'll encounter this. Since you are now -1, you'll be dealing with the overload protection a lot. After a certain amount of QPs, it disappears completely as far as know.

I also get this overload quite often. When I get it I refresh the page quickly then it fades away.

why wouldn't the "go to post" option be available for everyone? why would THAT serve as part of a penalty for not having enough qp's? especially being, that the qp feature is abused wantonly by the leftist mods?

what gets me is, when they finally cease being mods, and cease being able to penalyze people however they see fit, they receive enough qp's to negate drastic loss of them; as a REWARD for mostly abusing their power as mods. meaning, that even AFTER they no longer can abuse people using authority, they can CONTINUE to abuse people because they have the qp's to buffer them from any negative effects for quite a long while.

and when i used to hcm val about the mod abuse years ago, he snowing ignored me. just like he does now.

that doesn't work for me. i have to manually highlight the address and repeatedly hit "enter", and even then, it doesn't work but only 60% of the time(or so). the "refresh page" feature doesn't work at all, for me. just an endless loop of "overload" error.

If you're using Tor, you sometimes end up reloading the protection message many times in a row, because apparently a lot of bots use their exit nodes to access HC. It has been happening to me a lot recently.

chances are, we won't see any change, unless it's more restrictive.

also, why are you using tor to access the open net? you expose yourself by doing so.

Tor is not only for darknet, it provides VPN and makes your browsing anonymous. Good luck to anyone trying to fingerprint you, like all the major search engines companies do, which then use that data to profile you to serve their own corporate interests. But they can't do that if millions of searches come from the same exit node every single day. You can also use Tor to make bridge connections and hide what you do from your ISP. You don't have to be heavy on the technicals to just use it, it's easy and readily available even for complete newbies.

The bad part is that sometimes you get accused by Corribus about having duplicate accounts, since he sees posts from different members with the same IP. He pressed me to "confess" in private, it was hilarious.
Oh yea, and the overload protection feature of course, which was absolutely not my fault it got implemented.
