Hmm weird, I use dolphin HD myself. It looks nothing like that though, so maybe you are using an old version?

Nobody should be getting Cloudflare blocks anymore.

If you see a challenge page, where you need to enter a captcha to continue, it means you are either on an IP that is a heavy spammer, or your system might be infected and it spamming without you knowing it. If you see this warning, do a malware and virus scan.

Serious question - I know that rs is for the most part ad supported, but how much money does it cost to keep this forum running?

^ I've often wAndered that myself.

I would also like to know its history. Its beginnings. How it is structured. Who's who, etc.

It could be a Chinese Government sponsored site, for all I know.

I've got a berry and I wouldn't call it a "slowdown" problem; more like a crap shoot as to whether or not I'll be able to get onto RS Mobile.

It literally seems like it's a server error or something; it'll work for awhile then just die and back and forth.

I am also curious about this.....i think one of the execs should create a wikipedia page about RS....its history, operational structure, executive list etc.
Would be very cool to see.

32 people have been arrested in China for producing 'gutter oil' - oil recovered from drains and gutters near restaurants, 'processed' and then resold to restaurants as cheap cooking oil.
