Today the system has updated the news:
UPDATE: SERVER OUTAGE. We have finally mitigated the massive DDOS attack that started at 6:00am EST. Unfortunately it took almost all day to resolve. The site is operational now, and hopefully we`ll continue to tweak it more tomorrow to ensure this doesn`t happen again.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and we understand that this outage affects each of you personally. We?re sorry for that. We will continue to put measures in place so that outages like this do not occur again.
