    After the banning of xIcaerusIx I was told that at some point he said "You'll regret this" to someone. I don't know if this was in game, forum related, private, admin, etc. and if holding this information is obtrusive, feel free to let me know. Although it's time to get to the point. Was today's spam-attack dileberate? Could it have possible been launched or comissioned by a former banned member? I don't care who, just anyone? Or was it just a n00b grief team with a little time on their hands? Not that they got close to crashing the server or anything, but I'm just worried that we might get DDOS'd or majorly griefed by the same guys. I know that there's nothing we can do about it. But I'm seriously worried and just wanted to ask for some opinions before I start to go crazy from fear.

    Thanks ~Ted~

    It was kinda fun staying ahead of the spammers, and it actually helped us tighten up security - at the moment, as far as we know, there's nothing guests can now do to spam our server...

    I wasn't on when it happened, (I was at the in-laws' with the family) but an attack like this seems pointless and stupid anyway. It doesn't really do anything but fill up chat and is a momentary annoyance at best. I mean, enough people screaming stupid nonsense will be a bit of a pain, but not like the pain of not having the server for a few days.

    Thanks for pointing that out, Ted. Even if it was Caerus, and he managed to get a bunch of his buddies rounded up (Which, imo, is highly unlikely) they'll get bored and leave in a day. I don't think it's anything to worry about.
