Well, we finally made it back!
First of all let me just give a huge thanks out to everyone who wrote articles about us and has been emailing, sending IM messages and well wishes through the comments on other sites and of course, our families. The show of support has been overwhelming and it's really wonderful to see how much people care about our little community. By far the worst part of the last few days is knowing that our readers were missing not just a news site, but their community as well; a space we've all worked so hard to create.
Just in case you've been clicking on the site for the last few days and couldn't find us and didn't read about it elsewhere, the site recently came under a series of small DOS attacks which caused the site to give server resets every once in a while. We succeeded in blocking those attacks and then on Friday night, someone spammed the chat room and forums with hate speech and then by midnight or so on Friday, our host provider shut our server down until the attacks could be stopped for good.
Well, now we're back and I think the better for having been through it all. Thanks again for all the support and welcome back to all the members of our community. Also, a special welcome to any new readers who might be joining us.
And now we return you to our regularly scheduled programming!
