Time for another Spartacus.

Ivory Bill Woodpecker wrote to say:

Off topic--Shakesville is down. I e-mailed Melissa and learned it's a denial-of-service attack.

If we, the sane, ever regain control of the government, we need to turn some of its resources [Carnivore, maybe?] to finding these cyber-crooks. If some of these digital storm-troopers were frog-marched out of their parents' basements on national TV, prosecuted, and convicted, I reckon the incidence of such attacks would decline steeply.

Meanwhile, could it be time for "I am Spartacus" again?



  1. I am Spartacus.

    We are the mammals.

    Our enemies are the dinosaurs.

    Their own folly and corruption have summoned the asteroid.

    Judgement Day is coming for the [Un]American Conservative Movement.


  2. Ann Coulter advocates KILLING a presidential candidate and gets MORE air time.

    And Shakesville gets this? Does anyone know how this happened?

    Sign me up.

    I am F%$#ing Spartcus!

    Huh. I thought it was my decrepit computer acting up. Thanks, BG. Ready for action.

  4. Thanks, Blue Gal.

    And Shakesville gets this? Does anyone know how this happened?

    We've been down since last Thursday from a sustained denial of service attack. It's been going on for months, but it peaked last week.

    Just say when.

  6. ¡Me llamo Spartacus! ...y tambien yo tengo una sugerencia.

    ¿Could overt-amplification, say through blog-swarms, render DDOS's meaningless?

    Anyone aware of DOS attacks mounted by "The Left" against hate-mongering reicht-wing pukefest blogs, or are we all just into that damned First Amendment or something???

    ...Oh, and BTW - I'm Minicus!

  9. I'm with QD on this ... there is no justice in this world when AC can get on Good Morning America and Melissa is trying to get back online. I've posted a message about this at Yikes!

I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
