OMG-—I was just trying to access them for my laugh of the day.

What a damned shame. (sarcasm)

As a conservative, I do not find this funny. It is a violation of fundamental property rights and intrinsically an act of violence that stands in contrast to conservative principles of fundamental individual liberty.

As much as I detest the left, hacking privately-owned websites is unacceptable behavior and should be punished by the authorities.

It’s still up - or back up now

Stop this silliness - don’t check DU unless you are researching or in dire need of a shower and need encouragement.

Why would Anonymous go after DU (if they even did)? Other than boredom, that is.

Their website is probably suffering from a case of the blues. Rats can put a damper on just about anything.

How would you know the cause? Guessing?

If it was “Anonymous,” they’d have left a calling card.

I’m guessing just a server crash.

Either you belive in the constitution or you don’t. Regardless it’s not likely that crashing a raving moonbat site is going to slow the pace of national socialism.

We have to be careful to stand for their rights as well as ours, we don’t need to discriminate against thought like they do.

Lets be consistent.

Free Republic has been VERY stable recently. I'm very impressed with its performance. Jim and John have done a great job getting things fixed up.

Kudos. We notice the good stuff, too. :0)

Agreed. I don't agree with their manure but will defend to the death their right to shovel it. Plus I miss my daily DUmmie FUnnies. It's like somebody stole our ant farm.
