    If you have to ask then does it even matter?.They obviously weren't important.

    FTN - Moving, will be back up ASAP.

    Just to be clear, our email service was not taken down. As you can see, the server is still up (obviously).
    As of the moment, the site is actually still up, just not visible. This is why our IRC bot is still inviting to the channel.
    Stop freaking out, we're not going anywhere. We're just moving to a better setup since the old one is broken (should have the hardware soon) and we'll be back up to speed.
    All emails are safe.
    No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power. P.J. O'Rourke

    "An Avatar", not "A Avatar".

    On topic, this and the recent google instant results decision have me disconcerted, though in fairness, I have yet to figure out any sites that are down as a result of this particular "move" but it's a open declaration of war from the Maafia. Beyond that, the newest version of the Kill Switch act that just got revived is even more draconian that the original, and removes judicial review from the process of which sites/servers fall under the banner of imminent threat to the national e-infrastructure. Nations all over the planet have been engaging in questionable censorship activities on a local level, so I am forced to ask myself, how long before these measures become global? Like "UN"(lol, united, right) mandated, which would introduce a whole new scary ass realm of internet control, as well as social control.

    /tinfoil hat part of the post

    I guess my biggest question is, is this just the tip of the iceberg? Or just another ice cube we are supposed to think is the end of the world as we know it?
