Mars       242 days ago     # website is not working for me at the moment, I'm not getting any functional pages there, the navigation is broken so I can't find my house address and there's no information about closing my account. Help please. I am not entirely sure what's going on but there are several websites it's trying to connect to. The website crashed several times last night and I did not want to close it. I decided to take a look for the possible cause. It seems the forums are downloading strange files, they did the same thing in 2002 with a similar issue. This could indicate it is the traffic around the IP address... However the source of the problem seems to be a strange plugin that runs this javascript on pages that has a JavaScript area "on the page's chrome span". It seems to be the problem with all other js plugins on this site.
