    third time in a row getting kicked out while trying to edit and add to a previous post. Dot Defender is great for rendering the forum almost useless at times! :thumbdn::thumbdn::thumbdn:

    Since this post, I have been kicked off the forum over a dozen different times by Dot defender, this is very frustrating.

    I was doing a Google search for a particular knife, saw a Bladeforums post in the search results, clicked on that result and received this - 69b0-80fa-5a0c-b964

    When I tried it again a little later, I got this- 5fe0-73c0-29aa-22e0

    Block malicious attacks on the forum, such as Distributed Denial of Service (e.g., flooding BladeForums' server with meaningless requests for data response). Unfortunately, the software thinks a lot of us are "enemies."

    Yeah, we've opened up DD quite a bit to try to stop some of the issues - the settings had to be greatly modified in order to cope with normal traffic.
