    I was just looking at the stats for MA. At 1:00 PM on 5-6-16 a record was set with 4,756 users on line at one time. Today at 11:50 AM there were 734 users on line. Of those 734 users 707 were guests and 27 were members. What happened?

    It was an attempted denial of service attack from Internet Brands but they were too cheap to hire Russians, and they tried to do it by themselves. All they managed to do was enhance the MA stats.
