Sorry about the outage this week. Ongoing spam issue.

We'll get it sorted out and resolved this weekend.

Enjoy your weekend.

Phew, thought the place was gone for good as it was down for days and could not find any info anywhere. Is there a twitter account for this place to communicate outages?

I know I'm more of a lurker but I really would have missed this board. Glad it's back.

I definitely was starting to wonder what was really going on.
Good thing it wasn't my computer, so most websites are working fine.

I asked HSF about "WTF" and he told me about the possibility of copyrights. In the wake of the ongoing sexual harassment mania, I figured:

A) That the powers at be at The Big Three/Fox/NBCU decided that enough was enough in regards to the objectifying of their news women; therefore it was time to assert their copyrights and shut WWoW down,

or,

B) That some feminist sewing circle decided to finally report WWoW, or the people hosting WWoW decided to stop ignoring the feminist complainers and finally pull the plug.

Whatever happened over the past week...count me among the grateful to see y'all back in business!

Cue the "Welcome back Kotter" theme song!

The copyright issue was purely speculation on my part, but would've been a likely culprit. That's the reason why we don't allow Playboy material on here. I was also worried that some group in a snit reported us, but thankfully that wasn't the case either. Nonetheless, we're glad to have the board back up and running.

I saw a posting on the WWoW Facebook page that said something about the hosting service and its domain might have expired. Any truth to that? Anyway glad everything works now. I've been busy posting tonight. Think I'm done now. :snoopy
