No idea right now. They are a crafty bunch.

Working with network teams now to reroute in future.

Legitimately, it's most likely people that belong to some other site, like Reddit or Tumblr, that just don't want Voat to succeed. It draws numbers away from them. Nothing against the sites themselves, just the people who are assholes that may use them. Happens, but Voat just needs to pull through the initial transition and waves of dissent, and it'll stay afloat.

Yep, there's a mode in CloudFlare called "I'm Under Attack" and it enables an interstitial while CloudFlare analyses the browser and traffic. If anyone's having issues with it, note that JavaScript and cookies have to be enabled.

Nice, I'm glad they moved to a cloud service. Should make the site much more easily scalable.

It's what's ensuring the SRS ddos attack doesn't come back.

I wish they would keep their BS over there, but it's unsurprising that they started messing with voat when people started migrating en masse.

SRS, I thought we banned them or at least hid them in the deep reaches of the voatisphear

They can still attack if banned.

BTW, are we doing the "EDIT:" thing here or are we leaving that behind with reddiit?

Yeah, it's a courtesy not invented or limited to reddit. I think it's a very good idea in the name as transparency.

After they implemented the browser check, I can now get on with no issues.

It's an attempt to keep the site up for longer than a few minutes. It protects somewhat against DDoS, so long as you're not part of a botnet and have JavaScript on you should be just fine.
