Tipula subgenus Vestiplex. Looks like Tipula hortorum or nubeculosa.

No, in Limonia neither M1+2 nor R2+3 is forked.

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.
