Brief outage due to abusive search engine bot

RPGN had a brief blackout this morning due to our server being heavily hammered by an abusive Chinese search engine bot called Baiduspider. I have blocked the abusive hosts, and hopefully everything is back to normal. The spider managed to spam reload our page over a quarter of a million times before things shut down. So fear not, if you saw the message saying our site was disabled it was just a precaution! All is well again.
