Scroogle - a not-for-profit search engine that offered users something of a pro-privacy antidote to Google - has been killed...
Daniel Brandt (its creator), called it quits after his servers were repeatedly targeted by DDoS attacks on Scroogle.
(NOT) Google to once again attempt to banish the site from the interwebs, but.... a number of DDoS attacks that hit Scroogle, rendering the site utterly useless.
Scroogle.org is gone forever, Brandt told BetaBeat. Even if all my DDoS problems had never started in December, Scroogle was already getting squeezed from Googles throttling, (DATE SORT) and was already dying. It might have lasted another six months if I hadnt lost seven servers from DDoS, but thats about all.

rip Brandt, RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.
That’s too bad.
Did Google get him or was it hackers.
That sucks. The most important part that gets overlooked was the story of how how Scroogle came to be, and Brandt narrated the story on their site...confirming that Google was full of lib Democraps and they track you with the help of the Feds.
Smok, “Did Google get him”
Only in their deams, these punks have ALL the power. goog has used maggots rather than their hammers, Shoot you can visualivw the board meeting of this yuppy / crone confederacy.
Taint over til the fat lad sings.
