Oh FGS - it's not Tech's fault, poor love <strokes Tech's hair>
He's been asking for new servers for years ages, Justine said no (if I can find the thread, I'll linky)

But this is what happens

ModreB Wed 09-Oct-13 22:38:23

Still so slow. C'mon, get it sorted. Please x

Huge apologies for the slowness tonight/this pm. It is down to huge influx of traffic to this thread which appears to have "gone viral" and consequently our servers are struggling. We do have a plan in place, to increase capacity and in the very short term we are doing everything we can to help boost capacity but it is a pain I know, and we're really sorry for that. Please bear with us as the current excitement, no doubt, won't last too long.

I suspect that's what the OP's DH said just before he dunked his penis grin

SouthernComforts Wed 09-Oct-13 23:23:46

Worra grin

Well quite grin.

Get the flinking penis paddler out of Classics and in the sodding bin, it wasn't that great in the first inst!

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Wed 09-Oct-13 23:46:28

Oh fab, here I can post.

Where it matters, fucking treacle!

usualsuspect Wed 09-Oct-13 23:51:19

The whole unfunny thread is making me cringe.

usualsuspect Wed 09-Oct-13 23:53:11

Yes delete it, have you read the last few god awful posts on it?

An idiot magnet right there

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Wed 09-Oct-13 23:56:23

It was quite low key really usual and should have just sunk quietly.

I think the OP is cringing too. And probably applying to NASA for Martian citizenship.

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Wed 09-Oct-13 23:57:15

No, I refuse to re-visit.

CiderwithBuda Wed 09-Oct-13 23:58:54

Can't believe it's all because of one totally unfunny thread.

On the plus side I caught up on 6 episodes of Emmerdale and 3 of Criminal Minds.

Can you imagine if the same thing happened with any of the truly clever, witty, imaginative threads?

The whole planet would grind to a halt.

garlicvampire Thu 10-Oct-13 00:54:41

I loved the Telegraph's title, though grin

TEErickOrTEEreat Thu 10-Oct-13 06:09:53

If they deleted it, the internet might explode.

Seriously though, it's nothing HQ did. One bored journo stumbled upon it and bang it went viral.

It was mesmerizing to watch, really.

Yay! Glad it's all back to normal.
