Probably not Achanthiptera; I do not see any setae on r1 vein. To me it looks like an anthomyiid, but I am not sure.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
