Late yesterday afternoon, I published the post, “Parkland anomalies: David Hogg was at home during school shooting; interviewed girl before shooting,” then closed down my computer.
I awoke this morning to find a series of 16 successive emails from Jetpack Support, about FOTM doing down and then up throughout the night. Jetpack Support says it’s a connectivity problem.
Although FOTM now uses a non-U.S. host server, after our previous server WordPress burned down our blog on August 15, 2018, we still use WordPress’ Jetpack software because our readers and writers are familiar with the format and all the “bells-and-whistles” features.
I called our host server, and as we were talking on the phone, FOTM came back on. Minutes later, FOTM went down again: All you see is a blank page. I asked the server’s customer support if FOTM is under attack. He refuses to say, but said they’re “monitoring” FOTM and will call back.
He called back and informed me that the reason FOTM keeps going down is because we’re getting “a lot of hits with different IP addresses” — as many as 703,000 IP addresses — which led to periodic “system overload”. He promised that this now has the attention of the server’s “higher-ups” and that they’ll increase FOTM’s “processing” to handle the extraordinary number of “hits”.
Clearly, Fellowship of the Minds is under attack, probably by “bots” pretending to be different IP addresses. The timing of the attacks suggests the attacks are due to the “Parkland anomalies” post. TPTB does not want you to read the post. Happily, James Fetzer has reproduced the post at his blog: https://jamesfetzer.org/2018/11/dr-eowyn-parkland-anomalies-david-hogg-was-at-home-during-school-shooting-interviewed-girl-before-shooting/
Please say a prayer for FOTM.
