If you’ve noticed a redirect when visiting my site recently, I want to assure you that it’s nothing to worry about. This is by design and is a part of CloudFlare’s DDoS protection system. If you’ll remember the article from yesterday about my cat being banned from Twitter, I talked about people who literally want to take me off the internet altogether. That’s why you see libel about me on Encyclopedia Dramatica (I still like the site, by the way, the owner is cool as hell), it’s why they target my friends and associates, and it’s also why I have to use the CloudFlare protection.
Yes, I’ve had run-ins with CloudFlare in the past, but I have to admit that their service works pretty damn well. Whenever I can tell that I’m being attacked now, I just turn it on and the haters really can’t do anything after that. I usually turn it back down later in the day or whenever I get the chance. It’s not a big deal. The only reason I’m writing this post is because some people don’t really know what’s going on, and have been asking me about it. If you see a screen similar to this when visiting the site, you have nothing to worry about:
Thanks for the assistance, CloudFlare. You help keep TheRalphRetort.com rolling.
