Site Slowdowns

by W.F. Price on October 20, 2010

We’ve been getting enormous amounts of traffic lately, and it has caused my server to bump up against the memory limit, which kills scripts and makes the site slow way, way down or stop working. Yesterday, there was also a database failure on the server, which only compounded things. Amazingly, despite the site being down a few times yesterday, we had more traffic than any single day other than back when PMAFT’s scifi post went viral and was linked all over the place. It seems that The Spearhead is starting to become fairly widely known and recognized, as the traffic has been growing faster and faster over the last couple months.

I’ve raised the memory resources (nearly doubling them), and that seems to have fixed the problem. Only thing is, I’ll have to go back and lower the resources again when the traffic subsides because extra memory costs extra $$. I don’t like changing the memory all the time, because it’s a pain, but fortunately I found a program that can do it for me, like a faithful little robot, so I’ll be installing that and we can avoid traffic interruptions even when I’m sound asleep or otherwise away from the desk.

So if you find the site slow or unresponsive, it’s just growing pains and means that there are tons of people reading the site — once things stabilize again and we find a sweet spot with memory resource allocation things ought to smooth out.

Spearhead has obviously touched a nerve with a great many people worldwide! The excesses of feminism, unisexism, and misandry are finally triggering a (long overdue) reaction. The fact that very few other websites or blogs discuss the material of interest to Spearhead readers–and writers–gives your extraordinary growth additional impetus.

The next step, of course will be when the above elements begin to smear and slander us (and our reports as “pro-rapist”, pro-”deadbeat dad” and so on. Hacking into your systems and disrupting your URL and software may also be tried, especially where the feminists have contacts in the police, military, or intelligence community of concerned governments. The feminists–and their governments–don’t want their slaves to become educated, much less to abscond!
Along with that, there may be difficulties with political censorship as various IPS carriers (or even governments) try to link the Spearhead or its supporters with so-called “hate groups” or “extremists”.

Every knock by our enemies–and the enemies of all real MEN, along with the women who love us–is a boost for us and can only act to further spread the word. Every attempt to suppress us will strengthen both the Spearhead and other advocates of a civilization where men and women can one day enjoy and enrich each other again, and both work together to raise a new generation that they can be proud of!

Spearhead is going places!

I have been active in spreading the existence of this site and others to select individuals in person and over the internet. I have almost lost my pathetic job for doing so. If I do lose my job it IS well worth it to promote this outstanding, informative, enlightening, eye opening, let me stop here or I will use an extremely long list of adverbs to describe this site. I believe any/all pioneers in/of the MM, past and present would be/are well pleased with it. It appears this site has opened the eyes of so many who are tired of suffering the merciless onslaughts and lies of feminism.

Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 18 Thumb down 4

Holy sh– Robert. U almost lost your job?? WTF kind of place do U work at? Don’t get put out on the street. Remember, the internet can be used to circumvent any limits on free speech placed on you by your job. With the internet, U can spread ideas without losing your job and house / apartment.

This is great news and I totally agree with Mr Mellers post.
Was it not Ghandi who said something to the effect or is it affect
“First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.”

I work at a budget priced hotel. It is not a man friendly place to work at. Until the job market gets better, or I find something better (believe me I’m looking), I’m stuck working here. so far most of the men I have talked to have opened their eyes and see the evil and the damage that feminism has wrought upon men, women and, society. After I have interviewed them, I reffered them to this site. I guess most, if not all, of those who complained did so to get a discount on their room(s). They might one day wake up and see what I have been telling them is true.

As I have said before; If one believes in something enough, they will be willing to take risks and if need be make sacrifices. I believe in men’s rights and countering feminism at every/any opportunity. It might not count for much in the present but, hopefully it will count in the near future.

One thing I do ask of those who believe in men’s rights, counter-feminism, antifeminism and the like; will you do what you can to make sure the efforts of myself and others in the battle to not be in vain.

Hey Robert,

Good on you for spreading the word. However, be smart about it! It would not do for you to have no income… You might want to consider talking about it to people outside of work hours more.

Not bad advice. My employers know I am a men’s right’s activist and a counter-feminist. Sometimes they ask me about it. I’m getting better as to whom I choose to discuss men’s matters with. A Ninja cannot sharpen his skills without continued practice.
