    They've enabled sitewide cloudflare. Spamhaus 2.0 is in the works.

    Massive DDoS attack, i want to say all 11-12 of their nodes have been consistently offline for the last week+ or unresponsive.

    Anyone got more info?

    Every forum type site that I have seen use cloudflare always seems to have downtime. MyBB in particular, I notice it there the most.

    CloudFlare in my experience hasn't made much of a difference in the past. If the attackers know your IP(s), they'll just target them directly. Nothing you can do about that, except put a proper hardware firewall solution in place.

    Noticed same also with sites using Cloudflare, they do seem to suffer more with intermittent downtime. I used it myself once with a forum but ended up stopping because was noticing same thing happening on that.

    I use CloudFlare to manage the DNS of my domains... easier to manage stuff than cPanel or any other free alternative... Never benefited from their CDN service...

    That was my point, if they have the source IP's anyways if won't help with a DoS attack. It should, however, help with normal traffic load.
