 Friends tell me LJ has been playing up recently. I haven't had a problem.

Alot of people have had no or limited access all week (mine comes and goes - better at this time of night (unsurprisingly)).
Only place been able to see their (LJ Maint) updates has (ironically) been on FB. Once it's a bit more stable I'm going to do another backup to Dreamwidth.

Russian bad guys are trying to take it down, because someone, somewhere, is doing that freedom of speech thing.

Possibly. Apparently.

LJ hasn't said anything official about why the DDOS attack is happening this time, but there was a cryptic hint in a maintenance post - the quote "I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it" was mysteriously included the other day.

I've read a lot about this but haven't actually had much of a problem myself. Of course the DDOS attacks just make me more determined to support LJ. Any way gotta go Transneft are at my front door.
