Re: Democratic Underground
default mode

"The site was first attacked around 4:30PM ET on Tuesday afternoon. This was not a "typical" hack like a DDoS or an attempt to gain control of our web server. Instead, the hacker had found a vulnerability in our forum software.

"The hacker exploited that vulnerability in what appeared to be a politically-motivated act of vandalism: A large number of posts were removed and replaced with the words "God Emperor" (a reference to Donald Trump), and a ridiculously over-the-top pro-Trump video was served automatically to all of our visitors. If you're curious you can watch the video on YouTube (WARNING: HATE CONTENT)."

Looks like a major false flag effort coming from within the DU peanut gallery and that attempts to revive the site are likely genuine but stalled to play it up.  

Next chapter will see more rabble rousing from the wings, more deleted posts.

Re: DU in default mode from election day

UPDATE MONDAY 11/14/2016 3:00PM ET

Over the weekend we announced that DU would hopefully be back up on Monday or Tuesday. At this point we are very optimistic that the site will be back up on Tuesday afternoon. When DU comes back up, access will be granted to Star Members only on a temporary basis. For more information about this, please see the update below.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding -- see you all soon.



It's all aboard The Bounty. Maybe not first come first serve, but order rank come in handy in any Z Team neo-fascist mutiny.

The opposition, now hardly blaming itself for its own apparent ineffectual status following Trump side's win, will haltingly lead the exodus ... to ever greater glory.

Read more about refusnik flash riots happening near you, but first; take a number and get in line.

"As most of you probably know, Democratic Underground was vandalized by a hacker on election day, forcing us to take the site offline. We have spent the last week performing a security review of our software.

"At this time the DU discussion forums are back online for Star Members only. We are taking this precaution because we want to make sure that we are only receiving legitimate traffic while we continue to test our software and the new security measures that have been put in place. This limited opening period should only last two or three days before we open up the site to everybody."
