Why would anyone go to the trouble and the expense of subjecting this site to a DOS attack?
That’s a question I’m happy to crowd source to the very many thousands of you that visit this site on a regular basis.
My web people worked very hard to resolve the problem.
At time of uploading all we know is that the attack came from multiple Russian IP addresses.
There are some counter measures we can deploy against another attack.
They are costly, but I have little choice.
My work requires being online 7/24 so that I can continue to break stories and provide commentary on topical issues to my growing readership.
For some reason my online journalism is enough of a problem to provoke a DOS attack.
Who benefits from this site being offline?
I’m happy to crowd source that one too.
