    Default Drudge Report links Magnotta's MB411 post

    Been having difficulty since this afternoon accessing the site.

    Still can't access the site from any computer, and not until now on my iPhone.


    I suspect it might be related to traffic caused by DRUDGE LINK.

    The link simply reads: CRUISED MIAMI 2011 ?

    It opens to a broken link to MB411.

    I screen captured it and will post it later.

    Way to go !

    Blackford, thank you for bringing the Drudge Report link to our attention; it appears the link, along with the worldwide interest in the capture of LRM crashed our servers. To bring MB411 back online, one of the measures we had to do was to put a filter on the Drudge Report and stop the link from working.

    Who would've thought, we're more popular thanks to a murderer.

    I guess next time a criminal is cought we better power up the servers. At least it generated agood number of hits.

    Drudge already removed the link.
    Still only able to log in via my phone only.

    Wonder which of the two threads got linked. I suspect it was the one with the car.

    Yeah, it was the one in the car.

    Blackford, what do you mean that you are only able to login via your phone? Can you access the main site, or forums from a laptop, or desktop computer? Or, is it just the 2 LRM threads you can not access?

    Unfortunately, adding the filter also forced us to close the LRM threads.

    We are considering moving to a new web host.

    gus - The trouble is with both the desk and lap top.
    This is to the site in general.

    From the laptop, or the desktop, can you please restart your web browser, clear your cookies, and try again?

    If it still doesn't work, tell me what happens. Do you get an error message?

    I'm on the road heading to Winter Park for some grub.

    If I remember correctly, the error message was something like; HT403 or similar. I'm certain about the 403 part.

    Last night around 8pm -11pm I couldn't get on the site. I had a feeling it was linked to the popularity of the Luke M posts. Today everything is working fine. I also have updated to the new Firefox and I can see the travel store perfectly.

    I was having trouble accessing the site most of the afternoon yesterday and later I was able to get into the site but unable to access either of the two Magnotta threads. I wanted to post the video of his capture at the internet cafe, but I guess everybody's seen it now....

    I haven't seen it! Oh, and Glen made a comment about how weird he looked and I read the Drudge article that said he had plastic surgery to look like James Dean. Anyway I'm glad the site is back.

    He made up 90% of his past, so everything from his work as a "porn star" to his plastic surgery is suspect. I read that he'd actually just had a chemical peel, which went wrong and caused patchy hair loss in his eyebrows, so he began using mascara and concealer to cover up the damage.

    So we can's access the Magnotta thread anymore? I went to look at it and got an error message as well.

    That's cool, though. Maybe it will create more interest in the site. May also be the reason for all the spam comments we've gotten in the past day.

    Regarding the 2 LRM threads, the filter we had to put in place has temporally blocked them, but after we change to a new web host, which should be done in about a week, the threads will be open again.

    The spam comments were another issue that was fixed yesterday.

    By then everybody will be like, Luka who? I guess Magnotta anticipated that, so he mailed a hand and a foot to those schools in Vancouver to stay topical.

    There was an article about him in the Seattle Times yesterday. Gave me some good dinner conversation with my family last night.

    Too bad the servers couldn't handle our foray into the big-time! It's good that we're upgrading, though. We'll be ready for the next serial killer we have posting on our site...
