It's likely that it's just a guy being salty for past issues instead of the forum being popular. Right now, the only ones in here  are some of the people that left the YouHosting forums.

This is a new forum with just a few members and we didn't piss anyone off here to truly warrant such a long lasting attack. Considering we did piss someone off on the YouHosting forum and the nature of this attack, it's the only plausible explanation I can think of.

Well, it might also be part of the why the "member" and certain other words got censored to "banned" and "optimistic". Unless there's something that I missed, it looks to me like someone from YouHosting got ticked from the fact that we were moving and decided to get some petty revenge.

It's possible they are just targeting the IP range and we just happen to be here. This is hosted on the colocrossing network no? Who knows who had this IP in past, lol.

No, all the traffic has been through CloudFlare, which only protects the domain. Someone's specifically targeting the forum.

People DDoS websites only or a stright point of a website so as you saying the "Forum" is just that someone just don't like you. I know how it works. I've deal with many people who try to DDoS me.

Ahh, got ya. Well, that definitely would point to someone from the youhosting forums. The only one that did seem like they would take issue, other than possibly youhosting themselves, would be as mentioned already, htc2014.

They think they're going to take over the world and say "Get lose! You can't compare with my powers!" with their stupid HOIC or whatever they want to use.
However DDOSing is more than stupid, it's highly illegal. I don't know why you'd bother, either.

That doesn't stop 9 year olds from DDoSing their school websites.

Plus, the traffic is from China which makes me think they (whoever they are, most likely someone from YouHosting) are utilizing some indirect way of trying to take us down.
