Could it be that Kiwibank is again being DDoS'd? Getting 'upstream request timeout'... :(

@NeuroWinter based on what I've seen (I've spoken to their corporate IT security chief to discuss some of their practices) they're about 10 years behind in online practice, and they use terminal services in all their branches. Blech. What a broken model.
@NeuroWinter heh... maybe. I posted on FB to update folks following the story there to the 'change of heart'... and included joinmastodon.org in that post (just to prove it), and upon saving it, immediately got a notification that an *old* post with joinmastodon.org in it had been blocked for breaching FB's community standards... so I'm guessing they're some weird discontinuities in the way they roll out policy updates.
