Update on the smackdown: Pharyngula appears to be down
Now Pharyngula appears to be down. At least, I haven't been able to get to the site all morning, and as of now I still can't. I'm guessing the site is getting way more hits than its server can handle right now. Hopefully it's not a DDoS.
In any case, I guess that's the price of successfully debunking one of the big boys. Here's hoping Pharyngula is back up again soon.
