@backdraft, thank you for the HG link. It's a good read and good thing to know. What I noticed is that the frontend functions OK, most of the page load speed stays pretty consistent. Could it be that cache services do work against this kind of attacks? However, the backend of my WP sites are sometimes quite slow when I do editing/posting and comment moderating. I am not sure if it is related to this article or it's just my configurations / load.
I think everyone's observations count one way or another. Without having a good picture of what everyone is seeing, it is hard to speculate or come up with logical reasons behind the black box engines.
Even if all is well and great for some people, they should contribute and say too ;p. Instead of attacking people that are not doing well Then maybe it is possible to compare the sites that hit versus sites that are doing great. Deduction is made possible only when we have all the equations.
