Yes the weekend was when I first noticed it happen. Pretty much locked me out of doing anything for a couple of minutes at a time.

It's pretty unusual, but I don't think it's really an attack.

Does yours automatically log you in? I've experienced this a few times, and usually going to a different page or refreshing does the trick.

I have just had it happen again 20:46 uk time today. The site seemed to be under heavy load. Are these IP's you say have hit you hard Sami possibly mass commenting/rating sites through a script?

I notice they do the same on the CA forum http://homeofficeforum.ca.com/homeofficeforum/ and this pretty much locks the forums down for a minute at a time and is becoming a real issue there combined with the many SEOs searching member profiles and forums. I hope this will not happen here too as it is very frustrating.
