Skip to comments.URGENT: LifeSite is under attack
Posted on 10/28/2018 3:34:25 AM PDT by Petrosius
October 27, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) This is extremely urgent. I need to inform you that LifeSite just received an email at 8:30 p.m. EST from our web-hosting company alerting us that they will be taking our website down within 12 hours, if not sooner!
They wrote: we are implementing our SUSPENSION OF SERVICES clause...and giving you 12 hours notice to move your web site operations off of our servers..."
We received absolutely no forewarning whatsoever about this decision.
The company is acting after a months-long campaign of preposterous complaints against us by Adam Flanders. Flanders is a convicted sex abuser and homosexual activist who is angered over our reports exposing him and his past. As LifeSite recently reported, he has already succeeded in taking down other pro-family websites by targeting their server companies.
Flanders latest complaint is focused on the absurd allegation that LifeSite has been implicated in a violent hate crime against a gay man and Catholic church, and that we instigated property damage and a physical assault.
Our web developer is scrambling right now to set up a possibly-needed temporary solution to keep the website live. However, were going to have to go through the ordeal and expense of moving server companies. We also intend to fight these attacks, which will carry significant legal costs.
LifeSite is committed to continue reporting on Flanders and the entire anti-freedom homosexualist lobby.
Please donate now to help us fight this attack on free speech.
We also urge you to pray this issue is resolved quickly and smoothly.
Ummmmm.......put your servers in a conservative company maybe?
The answer to your question, no time soon.
This is getting ridiculous.
Ned Flanders’ evil twin?
And this is worse than book-burning.
Not only do places like that invest a lot of money in their projects, but imagine the time invested as well.
First social media, then conservative websites. Chilling.
I cannot imagine this website not being there.
I am thankful FR is still here.
It may not be if some of the crazies on the left aren’t reigned in.
Sounds like they need to sue Flanders.
Isn’t it great that we got rid of net neutrality and handed them this new power to selectively discriminate as they like?
What was protecting the left was also protecting the right...
Attack number three, and they’re getting more traditional each time.

If FR disappears some day, that would be extremely disturbing. It’s been so long since I signed up and can’t recall if we had to give an email address. If the site were taken down, maybe an email blast would be sent...?
Same technique was just used on Twitter’s Conservative competitor, Gab.ai
Timed before an election.
Which conservative company is truly independent and fits the bill?
