Internet Gun Boards under attack?

TheHighRoad.org is apparently under some kind of domain hijacking attack right now....

I had trouble logging onto TFL earlier either...

Now I just read that Keith Ratliff was murdered in his office today.

Hmmmmmmm.....

I'm not ready to dismiss all the recent Gun Control news as pure hype or bluster... me thinks the libs are taking the gloves off and it might just be getting nasty.

Just saw THR is down and came here to look around. May be nothing, may be something.

The High Road is coming up fine for me and The Firing Line has not had any problems of which I am aware....

Let's not invent conspiracies.

Our net security is giving me error messages that THR is attempting to load a "DNS Rebind Attack"

Perhaps you think your on THR, but are actually on The Virus Road

I can see THR home page OK but can't go anywhere afterward.

THR has been slow loading for a while now. They are working to fix that, nice.

and that is exactly what TFL was doing to me when accessed from IE9

I can only get on with Chrome.

I'll bet you a cup of coffee there's an attack going on.

After all, It has happened b4.

Exactly the results I'm getting. I figured it wasn't too wise to override the warnings I was getting until I knew what was going on.

I just checked it again, it was slow earlier but loading, now it's loading just as fast as TFL, which is all but instant. I'm not counting to "one, one thousand" before the pages load.

THR appears to be having some server issues. That discussion is underway in Forum Support.

There is no indication that this is part of a larger conspiracy. Stand down. The chair is not against the wall.
