This blog started behaving disturbingly after TW’s last post. All posts just vanished. A few minutes later the content reappeared but the Atheist blogroll had become a featureless void.
A quick link to the almighty Mojoey’s site showed that the blogroll was even missing from its own home.
Pinging the blog roll brought this response:
While trying to retrieve the URL: http://www.*************ping.phtml
The following error was encountered:
The system returned:

Obviously, an outsider can’t tell whether this is just a server that can’t cope with the huge numbers of enthusiastically blogging atheists (:-D one can always hope) or whether it’s a DOS attack.
The lack certainly brings home what a public service it is. I do hope it’s sorted out soon.
