In case you were wondering why most third party apps for Voat haven't been working for the last 8 hours or so - we are under DDoS. Again.
Here's a quote from CloudFlare support engineer:
[...]it definitely looks like you're currently being hit by a Layer 7 attack.
Based on this, I can see at least 1962179 requests that were blocked by IUAM in the past 24 hours.
It would appear that these requests are coming from a botnet, though I cannot say for certain, all of which are using legitimate user agents.
In order to keep Voat at least somewhat responsive, we've bumped up CloudFlare security settings which essentially breaks most Voat third party apps currently on the market. We are sorry about this and we are working on a solution and taking this time to optimize our source code even further. What doesn't kill you - makes you stronger, right? ;)
