Ok, everyone getting blocked, email me your direct IPs so I can whitelist you. I will also notify tank so he can improve the firewall rules.
@gregster could you volunteer as a spam officer? :+1:

Well, recently, i was often around when the spammer showed up. So, if my "luck" continues, yes, I would be willing to help. I cannot expect other people to do things that I wouldn't do...
It would probably be good to have a few more people around - until we have a better solution.

Edit: But only if there is a secret handshake involved :shifty:

@tank: all I put in there was exactly what was in that post. It triggered it when I tried to preview it.
I can't even preview a post without triggering that page.

@joedf, what email address do we use for whitelisting our IPs? EDIT: Editing works here, but not in "Ask For Help."
EDIT 2: I was able to post a follow-up in "Ask for Help", including a zip archive and an animated GIF. Out of pure paranoia, I used "dee ell ell" instead of you-know-what and "you are ell" instead of the-other-you-know-what. Seemed to work.
EDIT 3: Now able to edit in "Ask for Help" again. Haven't dared to try the Preview command.

But I need the ip at the time of the post so I can query the firewall rules. In this case the paste pastebin is equally helpful. I will be working today but I will track it down this evening

I'm still having no luck in creating a new topic in Bug Reports, as well as having trouble posting here.

I'm not a prolific poster, but not at all a new one.

After some seconds, Firefox gives me a blank page; Chrome gives me a 500 error.

I don't know what you mean by "pastebin"; would you please explain, or give me a pointer?

I was thinking that the problem in this topic might involve message size, or quoting, or use of BBCode in general, but a bit of testing (messages here which I've deleted) seems to rule them out.

And I have just -- finally -- succeeded in posting my new item to Bug Reports.

Did somebody tweak something here?

Vandalizing a website is illegal. It's sad that the community has to be subject to such mentally disturbed behavior. Such actions go way beyond trolling, and arguably anything rational, and are in fact criminal.
