I was posting off and on since fairly early this morning but got interrupted and needed to take care of something and left my browser up. When I came back (might've been an hour, might've been more, I don't really know) I went to use "search" before posting an article to one of the open tabs, that's when I got the "site unavailable" message.

A member accused another member of something horrific without any evidence to back it up, and honestly, it was so bad that without outside evidence (like the arrest of a former member and his wife with the newspaper story) it should NEVER have been made on this type of forum.

It was the sort of thing that could be reported to the police or talked about with an attorney but not the sort of accusation you make (especially not by name) about another forum member (again, not unless you have the newspaper story or court report to go with it).

I don't think the site being down is part of this but it might be; hopefully, Dennis will be able to check into this as soon as he is off work.

The site is actually up but there is something wrong with the domain name......

This will get you into the main forum page but if you click on a thread it will error out....

Now once you click on a thread and it errors out just replace everything before the /vb with the IP address.....( 67.211.47.26 ) this will allow you to browse but I doubt you can do a post successfully.....NOTE: opening a thread from the main page open it in a new tab or window.....

I clicked on the link and it first brought me to the main forum, I tried to log in and got the same old same old and didn't get logged in. Then I tried just clicking on a thread link where it shows others posting and same old message. BAH!

You will not be able to log in since the domain name is all messed up, under the covers it will always try to use the domain....but you can browse by inserting ( 67.211.47.26 before the /vb ) when the page errors

The IP address will now bring me to the welcome page, but that's it. We've been down before, but I've never seen anything quite this strange during those times.

That's kinda what I was thinking. Bit coincidental, no?

Whether it is or not, I can't believe a particular member was so daft as to pull a stunt like that. Good grief !

I just got a page said "this site no longer parked by GoDaddy" whatever that means.

Seems I missed the drama of what happened, I'm kinda glad I did.
