To the CoasterBuzz members who alerted us to the mass post attempt that happened tonight, thank you. As you can see, the attempt at damage has been cleaned up. Have a great weekend.

The great irony is that the sad little people who think they're hurting someone or doing something naughty actually made for one hell of a great Saturday in terms of ad revenue. Pretty ironic that a couple of kiddies who thought they were doing harm would actually be putting money in my pocket.

The holidays really are happy. :)

God to hear that no harm was done. Good too see the site back up, and the ignorant posts (and hopefully the ignorami that posted them) deleted.

I would have IMed you Jeff, but your away message was quite a cocky one. So I didn't.

It would seem that you don't have control over how fast a person could post. Is there a way that you could implement something like that for future flooding protection?

That control has always been there, I just didn't have it turned on because frankly I trust most people. Obviously I can't do that.

And if you know me, you know my away message is supposed to be funny...

Nice work Jeff. Fast and professional. As if I needed more reasons to renew Buzz Club.

What I want to know is could these guys somehow still comeback? I mean is it possible?

It's technology... anything is possible. And if they do, who cares? That's when you find something else to do. I do have to wonder what their mommies will think when they get calls from Verizon DSL and AOL about their naughty behaviour.

I'd suggest you turn it back on, Jeff. That way, it would only take 23 hours to be spammed that badly.

Edit: I forgot about humor in away messages, been a long night. *** Edited 12/7/2003 5:55:58 AM UTC by CedarPoint_Mark***

What got me was how a lot of buzzers just kept responding to everything they were saying and trying to understand or reason with them which you can't. They were just feeding the rage basically. If nobody responded, it would have been much less fun for them.

Now I will admit I did reply to "crackBarron" a couple of times, but that was before I realized he was a spammer. At first I thought he was just another one of those "trolls" where they just feel they have to respond to every topic, but I quickly realized that wasn't the case.

I think a troll is a troll and as Jeff said the little punks actually did more good than harm. I am sure Jeff will be laughing all the way to the bank.

Somebodys' parents are going to be pissed today. ;-)

I don't post here too often. Mainly because I only really worry about cedar point cause its the only park I ever go to on a regular basis. But I just want to say that I am very impressed at the speed and professionalism that this problem was handled. And would like to congradulate you on a job well done

Since this happened I have occasionally gotten a message saying my IP address was banned on this site. Now I did make a comment about these dorks not having enough vaseline to keep themselves occupied but I don't think it was enough to get banned for. No problems today so far however.

I'm glad Jeff made some money too. Maybe this should happen more often, Nah. But if it does just sit back and know Jeff's getting paid.

Well, When I try to reach the site it says I'm not authorized to view the page and the IP address of my browsing computer is on the banned list. I never made any trouble. What gives? You know, I'm not really an enthusiest, Just a guy that likes coasters alot and someone that likes coming to this site, because it does'nt have all the crap noise that the other coaster sites have. I hate Aol too, but it's all I can get where I'm at right now til I move again, which I can't wait. *** Edited 12/7/2003 5:47:22 PM UTC by stoogemanmoe***

I haven't got them, but maybe they messed up the banned database. It appears Jeff has the mess cleaned up.
