"Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network" error all visitors K`Tetch 8/2/12 6:59 AM
for about 20 hours now, all visitors to my site (www.ktetch.co.uk aka ktetch.blogspot.com) have been getting the "Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. Please try your request again later." error message.

I doubt we ALL have malware on our systems, so something is wrong on the google side. I've not even added a post since Monday. Accessing my other blogger blogs gives no issues.

The only related thing I can see, is that 2-3hours before the error message appeared, it was featured on a major tech blog site (http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20120729/02544819867/uk-government-censors-copyright-consultation-submission-about-how-awful-collection-societies-are.shtml), and gave an influx of about 250 hits, peaking at 67/hour. I've been on slashdot twice before, so that's not even close to 'busy' by comparison.

So, wondering what's going on. Nothing I know has been changed, yet this message started appearing for everyone. As a result, I can't follow the guidelines, because it's clearly not an issue on the users end.

ok, it seems to be an issue between blogger and cloudflare. I paused cloudflare, and problems went away.

Does need to be fixed right away between you two, because cloudflare is an EXTREMELY handy tool for helping sites survive any kind of attack.

I do believe this issue is resolved now (we talked with Google about the issue).
