Has anyone else noticed that a lot of rails powered sites (eg, typo
blogs, http://dev.rubyonrails.org/, etc) have been taking a long time to
render pages or are not resolving at all?
What is causing this? Is it related to DOS attacks, poor programming,
interesting. do you have statistics? id imagine some web-crawling
spambots could generate some pointless traffic. especially when they
cause an SQL query to retrieve all comments from a post, and proably
another query or three to grab the session, record some log data, etc.
