Three hour outage

Hi, I found the site offline after about three hours. I'm currently trying to investigate the cause of the outage.

Another outage caused by a mistake at the host

Hi everyone,

You’re probably tired of apologies by now, but at any rate this is to let you know that there was some sort of an automated glitch at the host related to the mistaken suspension of my account yesterday. I sincerely hope this will be the last time, as they assured me that the suspension glitch is now “cleared” out of the automated system.

Glad to you have you all back online.

Waiting on the webhost

Back online now.
I will not defend the host’s terrible handling of this issue. They completely bungled the whole deal. First of all, we’re not sending spam and we never have. Instead of disabling the entire site without prior warning, they could have simply asked me for my information without shutting the site down. Or at worst, they could have simply blocked all outgoing mail from the server until they get the necessary compliance information. What a nightmare. Sorry for the downtime, and thanks for sticking around!

Hi guys,

It's not my fault this time. Thanks to our friends, the spammers, all webhosts are forced to be ridiculously cautious about all customers who send emails from their servers. Since BLF sends a LOT of notification emails, they are currently asking me to verify some personal information just to make sure everything is legit.

Sorry about this.

Back online

We're back online now after a few hours of downtime. Not exactly sure what happened, and unfortunately I'll be away from my computer all day today. Hope to look into it more tonight. Sorry about that!
