Oh the irony. Now the forum is running more smoothly more spammers are signing up  >:(
Well, you know what they say... A Tank's job is never done  ;D
If I ever meet a spammer in real life.....  >:(
...While carrying around a real banhammer...  ;D

Nope, rope, paperclips and a cigaret lighter come to mind!

Seems to be running much quicker now, though it is still a bit sluggish for my connection speed but not really complaining just stating.

I have had this happen a few times though (see below).

That may be an issue with your ISP....I was getting that same issue form time to time before Tank cleaned things up but now I don't have any issues and the forum loads in about a second or two (fios)

This happens because the CSS style sheet (a file of formatting rules) has not been applied by the client computer (your's) to the data served by the page request (from the server). I get is sometimes as well. I'm not sure why it happens at HAF but I suspect its something to do with the page design of an smf forum as I never get it with other sites irrespective of size or speed. Do you run Firefox or some other browser?

I've had that happen here with Firefox occasionally, not just recently but it's not a big deal.

One can just refresh the page and 99 time out of 100 that clears the problem.

This is going to be redundant, but I was also getting those error messages, but it's stopped now.

Whatever the bug was, looks like you fixed it.   

Give no mercy to your fear.

TANK?! Where you at?!

Have a whole bunch of errors and timeouts now. Whatever it is you are messing with, leave the damned thing alone, will you?!  :P

I've had a few to. I think it's the server in general at this point.
