Here's what happened (for anyone who cares):

We are a larger community than most forums (excluding the commercial forums like this one; of course they're enormous; that's not my point). The notifications option that was toggled spat out "Your thread was commented in by..." posts like nobody's business continuously, day in day out, and the host tagged it as spam, locked the account, and logged it in a support ticket.

Of course it wasn't spam, but they didn't know that. I resolved the issue and I am currently waiting for it to be turned back on. When it is, the site will be in maintenance mode while I disable email notifications and daily email reports and the like.
In response to this, I have sabotaged most of the email functionality of the site. You shouldn't get new notifications and you certainty shouldn't be able to subscribe to anything else. If you can, please, please go to your profile >> Modify Profile >> Notifications and uncheck everything. The on-site notifications that pop up will still work even with these disabled, so you won't be stuck with nothing.

Getting the fatcow page on certain items?
Clear your cache and do a hard refresh. It's all good server side.

It goes to the Fat Cow site problem but I'll try to get a pic.

"There is no ignorance; there is knowledge.
There is no fear; there is power.
I am the heart of the Force.
I am the revealing fire of light.
I am the mystery of darkness
In balance with chaos and harmony,
Immortal in the Force." ― The Je'daii Code
That would explain this new site, thanks for the info.
