Has Free Republic been hacked by the Democrats?

Sarah Palin and Bill O'Reilly have been maliciously hacked by democrat party operatives in the last few days. Free Republic has been acting wierdly for the past week, now with a major system failure today.

Given the democrat party and the Obama campaign's ferocious hostility to free speech and the open expression of opinion, has FR suffered the same fate?

Naw, it’s growing pains from a three-server expansion. It’s going to take some tuning for a little while. We lost a major MySQL table that JohnRob’s bringing back from tape, which will mean that old articles aren’t going to be available for awhile and also is affecting the search engine because there isn’t anything there to search for.

The load is probably greater lately from more traffic as we get closer to the election and maybe having more people makes some glitches happen?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful living in a world ruled by Democrats and liberals? You’ll never meet a nicer bunch of people. /sarc

Could not answer that but the system failures and slow access timing out postings is so annoying it makes one want to stop stopping by.

When I attempt a self-search on my comments — it looks like all of my comments have been deleted?

Anyone know why? I keep a lot of good reference material bookmarked there — and I miss it very much.

Don’t panic. They were in the table that’s being restored from tape. It’s over two million articles, so it’s going to take some time.

Nah, it’s just server issues related to a reported upgrade. BUT - your question is completely valid considering the well-documented actions of Obama supporters during the DNC contest. Obama’s supporters, even using HIS website, often shut down pro-Hillary sites during the DNC contest.

No wonder Hillary hates the guts of that jive talking, con-artist, affirmative action street thug from Chicago.

Actually John’s been working to make it MORE BETTER before the real crunch of the election.

Hang in there while the kinks are worked out.

Thanks. I think I will reform my ways as a cheap b*stard and send more dollars to FR next donation cycle.

Amen! Too bad more people don't know the truth about that. To be honest, she and Bill have done more to elicit votes for Maverick/Barracuda than is currently realised. hee hee.

It was too a dimo hack.

He has to work extra hard to pay all the taxes the dims make him pay. They did this because they knew fatigue would set in, eventually bringing down FR. Ahhhh, but we have a secret weapon: Backup tapes!

Just ask Tricky Dick. There’s always a tape.

This is just the beginning. These people are going to go absolutely crazy if Obama doesn’t win. They are hateful trolls.
