Drudge Site Taken Down By The Feds

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

The Feds have taken Drudge offline for what they say is a cover for kiddy porn.

Gee the news service that broke every story about Clinton and his nasty ways gets taken down....

Just logged onto drudgereport. It took four tries, but I got there...

Jim Where did you get this info? Did a search, nothing found to indicate that is so. There have been many times I have hit the site and found nothing, ie, "Drudge is in the field and will file a report when conditions warrant." or even a "file not found response". Please, a little hard data would go a long way.

Thanks, Rusty

Just went there, sure looked normal to me... Well, at least you took my mind off y2k for a couple of minutes. Was that the intention?

A little reality testing is needed here, Jim. There are still a few things the Federal Government can't do, however much it might like to.

I've been trying to get to Drudge all day and have not gotten through.

I can get to the home page but not the top 2 news stories.

Would someone please post a link to the Drudge page?

The Drudge Report site is just extremely busy guys!!!!!!!!

Why the continual "conspiracy" paranoia.......It's getting boring.

Jim's just a little kid, running around, having fun.

You know, they're looking for smart kids like you in North Korea, Jim.

Drudge is about as reliable as - and very similar to - the London tabloids. Sometimes they break a real story, more often they either rehash old news in a new format - or they just make something up. Rotten reporting.
