Don’t know too much about he technicalities but it says it’s checking my (your) browser. As far as know, BOTs aren’t operated from private browsers.. My guess is that whoever hosts this site has some security issues and this browser check is some kind of belt and braces security. It is annoying though.
Surely someone from ABR magazine can tell us what the f#ck is going on??????
Agreed..............

I am sure those that run this forum puts lots of time and effort into keeping it running for many of to use for free. 5secs waiting for it to load is irrelevant in your life, chill out or if you don't like it don't use it as they say :lol:

Has anyone else had trouble accessing the forum through Tapatalk.
Wanted to post a pic found Tapatalk works best for me, but couldn't get to forum as network errors.



Treadtrader no point thanking people for posts, could you give us an update on the situation and is this likely to be permanent or is it just a temporary measure.
Thanks in advance.for your rapid response 😜😜😜😜🤪🤪🤪🤪🤣🤣👍👍

A bit hit'n'miss in Tapatalk for me....and I'm finding the browser check thing very irritating using the PC.
No other sites/fora seem to use it - can ABR offer any explanation?

Hi All

I've not read every post on this thread but hopefully this will explain. The browser checker is a security measure turned on at Cloudfair when a server or site is under a ddos attack. The ddos attacks which have been aimed at the ABR (and AT) server have arisen in the Ukraine and China, they are designed to slow down and crash our server. The browser checker stops that happening.

ddos attacks are not viruses so don't worry on that score. From what I've been told they are originated by a corporate or personal entity with a grudge or by someone who's nothing better to do.

When the attacks stop we'll switch off the browser protection, they usually go away after 10 days or so.

Hope that explains.
