After the forum being hacked earlier, I'm able to return now, but after putting the WTM web address into my address bar & hitting 'enter', a grey page appeared with a message that included: "Checking your browser..." and at the bottom was a link that said "DDoS by CloudFlare". Please tell me that is something normal from this forum's security and not the hack-job spreading to my computer.

This is normal and is only turned on while the attack is happening. It is a preventative measure. It will return to normal shortly.
