This lacks the head capsule typical of tipulids. I think it is more likely to be something like Scathophaga.

I agree with Tony, no Tipulidae, but definitely Scatophagidae.

Thankyou Tony and atylotus. I suspected it could be something else than Tipulidae but similar.

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.
