Well this is weird. I'm in the UK and can't access your site anymore. IE says page cannot be displayed and Firefox says can't connect to your server. However if I use TOR, I can get straight in which is why I can post. If after using TOR I can get in through IE or Firefox for about a minute then it's back to can't be displayed/can't connect.

Just wondering if the UK gov has blacklisted you or have you done some "maintenance." I get you in Google search results(IE/FF) so I could see you were up by the post dates, but the links to your site don't work.

I know British Telecom blacklists sites and displays "Page cannot be displayed" instead but it isn't my ISP, although most connections run through the BT network.

Anyone else reporting this problem?

I live in the Midwest USA, using Google and was unable to get on all last evening. Wasn't just you. Some Ddos attacks going on, according to the news, and has been mentioned on here before too.

I seemed to have the same problem yesterday 3rd of April in Greece from
about 18:00 to about 22:00. I tried signing in on both IE and firefox, but nothing.
After that it seemed to be fine.
For me it said something about too much trafic and that I should try again later.

I had the same problem early afternoon but it corrected itself and I was able to access the site with no problems.
I am in Australia and I have similar problems with sites in the UK around the same time but this occurs every day not like ATS which has been a 'one-off' occasion today.

Same here in Australia have only just got on.

What the hell happened. I was checking news sites in case something had happened.

I've had the same issue in the UK all morning and have been viewing through a US based proxy instead (although it hasn't allowed me to post anonymously)

However, I have just re-tried through my normal browser and it has now let me in!

I cant access the site from Finland either. I've been trying for about a day. I can get through when I use tor. Hoping for a fix asap.

I just got on .... I live outside Philly.
ATS was 24 hours down.

ATS Twitter feed says ... ATS was HACKED.


Yesterday, just before this all happened, there were a bunch of posters (actually, one who opened multiple accounts I think) who was/were posting all sorts of extreme hatred against America. I hope the MODS kept the IP address(s) and when they report the hack attack they include those IP addresses to be investigated.

Just curious. How did you post the message then?

I couldn't get in for a while from Australia either.
