Down for several hours of what would be "last night" in the US.
Up as soon as SO was.
The only problem I have now is that I have a u2u that I've replied to twice that won't go away. It's the U2U that would not die

Yes, it has happened.
Not because it came too close, but because it revealed the identity of undercover persons (as I recall), and was responsible for closing several sites, permanently.
I believe there were previous incidents as well, but before my time. While striving for the truth here, it does no good if we're shut down...
SO has already made a statement on the incident (you'll have to search, I'd suggest on "Nans Desmichaels"), so I won't elaborate more on it here...
