That would make sense, but why all the sudden? I haven't posted anything stupendous there in the last day or so...
Actually, I TRIED to post something about North Korea's threat to nuke Washington and/or New York, basically a threat to fight till one of them is changed forever -- which would "all be over in a week".
I looked today, and that thread has been deleted.
Now THAT would have explained the flood of traffic, but every other post of mine on FE is relatively old.
