Pressing The Attack

As best I can tell, that appears to be part of the much wider
WordPress DDoS attack
though that's admittedly speculation on my part.
I haven't seen any evidence that ATS is under attack by a government agency, though that doesn't mean they couldn't use surrogates and proxies if
they wanted to.
But I also don't know of any reasons why a government would want to shut us down. While many of our members are well-known for freely criticizing
governments, nothing we do here is illegal and we don't threaten anyone.
That doesn't mean would-be tyrants wouldn't target us anyway if they considered us a nuisance, but so far, I don't think it's come to that.
