This is a male Hebecnema (Muscidae), and the halters appear to be blackish, so it is likely Hebecnema nigra.

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.
