As a restored Facebook Friend who used to be a member of this forum observed, my website has been down since this afternoon. I'm a little scared, as when I log in it looks like my directories are still there but empty of content. I'm praying this is a temporary glitch. At the moment all Angelfire sites seem to be down, including Paul Theroff's Online Gotha. I have no idea what to do. I've submitted an online customer service inquiry but haven't heard from them yet. There is no phone number as far as I know.

The blog and forum (except, apparently, for my avatar here) are unaffected, obviously, since they have nothing to do with Angelfire. I was actually a little bit relieved to find that the problem was not unique to my site, but I'll be anxious until it's back up.

It could be a test run for taking down sites.  I've noticed an increase in censorship on the web.

I actually doubt that. I don't think anything on my site is controversial enough, honestly. Sadly, monarchists are not much of a threat, at least not if we don't branch off into other issues like migration, which I don't on my website itself.

It looks like Angelfire sites will be down again, or at least unable to be edited, this weekend for an "upgrade." At least this time they warned me.

I remember in the early days of the 'net I had a hand distributed list (is anyone here old enough to remember them?) that later became an .alt news site called alt.counter.revolution, unfortunately, since taken over by nazis. One day, I got an email from someone I had sent it to. He said, 'My God, don't you realise the government reads these!?' 

My response was that I wished the government would consider counter-revolutionary monarchists a threat!

The website is down again this weekend, but at least this time Lycos warned me. Some sort of upgrade which I think is supposed to address issues such as the one I experienced recently. Should be back up by November 1.
