Shakesville's still down
According to William K Wolfrum, a regular over at Shakesville, the site is suffering from yet another DOS attack by people who dislike Melissa's position on rape. This apparently happens nearly any time she takes on the subject, so the site's being moved to a dedicated server. I know less than nothing about how that stuff works or if it's possible to track down the people behind it, but I hope there's some sort of penalty for pulling this kind of crap. It's sad when people feel so threatened by ideas and talk that they feel their only recourse is to be a bullying asshole.
