Denial of Service attack?

Post by Balaam's Ass » Thu Oct 27, 2016 3:53 am

I see there were purportedly 61 users on this site at the same time on Friday, the day that fisherman was silenced (briefly).

Could this have been a 'denial of service' attack? Where were the other 43,939 potential attackers?

They have judged computers as evil ... again? Can only the elite now can use them freely, others for business only and definitely not for home use? IF SO there is your 60 and 1.

Could this attack and the banning of the home use of computers have anything to do with the recent publication of the record of the "assembly meeting" in Sydney in October 1965? Too many awkward questions! People might even start thinking!
But perhaps I am adding 2 +2 and getting 5 as an answer.

... except 2 plus 2 equals 6.
