Any clues or coverage?

Plastic.com was killed along with suck.com and feed.com when Automic Media shutdown.

fuckedcompany.com is a great site for watching the latest dot coms fall.

well, i never thought much of plastic. Filler, however, has been the staple in the navel of my midweek reading for quit some time now. I'll miss the suck out of Suck.com. That is if suck.com's vacation isn't just some kind of online cry for help, mindgame on the unsuspecting public or some sucky version of The Who's last tour.

Suck.com went "on vacation" a good while ago, with feed following close behind. Plastic, however, seemed to be chugging along fine until yesterday. If you have a direct link to other parts of the site, it seems to be there, even allowing posts. But the entrances is all boarded up.

Yeah, it was supposed to be a "vacation," but it also included layoffs of most of the suck.com staff, so the hopes of seeing more Polly Esther genius in the future over there is probably scant.

Here's hoping she lands on her feet somewhere else, with Terry Colon in tow.

What are you people talking about? Plastic's been working fine for me just now, even coming from the front page.

Very odd.

I got a blank front page (not a 404 or anything- just an empty html doc) for two days.

Okay, back to plastic. Thanks.

Ironically, now I'm getting the blank front page. I did manage to get to the rest of the site how you mentioned earlier, but from what I saw not much has been posted that's new today anyway.
