Hi Lucy,

Having checked that, it proved very useful, as they are trying very hard 
not to answer any of my queries directly, plus it was around that time 
that they admitted to having a problem, and when I questioned them about 
and told them I knew it was the same person that made that attack and 
this one, why is it he is still able to attack the server. To which they 
stopped answering my messages. They tried to tell me that it was a multi 
IP attack, by many different computers, to which I gave the address as 
proof, to show them it was just one person. Not happy they arent.

I'm not happy either that they wont help me and show me what exactly was 
the problem with my site. Its been very frustrating.
