This should satisfy all that are wondering what has been going on with the hosting here at the Anvil. I finally received an email from a LunarPages admin that actually knows how to do her job. Not surprisingly, her name is something that I can actually pronounce and most likely doesnt belong to a Muslim convert. What follows is an edited version of the response, but you will now see that I have absolute proof that the Leftofascists and Islamofascists have been hard at work tying to shut me up. Ive been telling LunarPages to check for ddos attacks for weeks; someone finally listened:

Hi,

Our admin has moved your account to a quieter server whilst the issues are worked out with regards to your CPU /MEM usage which is why your main page is back online.

This server has fewer customers and is less likely to crash in the event of attacks or high usage.

I have checked back through the last 6,000 lines of your domlogs for foehammer.net on its present server

It has indeed been hit by a flurry of ddos attempts:

This IP has almost 500 hits to your domain and is now blocked in the severs firewall:

(Hits: 467) #.#.#.# (netvigator Hong Kong)

There were also hits in the 100 to 300 from other ISPs.

I then went on to check the pages hit by this IP and it is apparent that this attacker was angered by a post on there with regards to the criticism of obamas muslim background being justified as almost every single hit was to this article:

#.#.#.# – – [22/Jan/2008:22:37:33 -0800] http://foehammer.net/2007/12/ criticism-of-obamas-muslim-background-is-absolutely-justified.html Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

To overcome this I have now (edited out).

Your current usage is down today and this is before I installed the script, hopefully we will see this greatly reduced in the next 24 hours.

This quieter server is obviously a snail and unacceptable. Im hopeful that once some protections are put into place that I might actually want to blog again.

To those that might think switching hosts is no big deal, Im afraid you do not understand that I am being caught in this treadmill at the worst possible time for me personally, so yes, switching the Anvil to a new host is a very, very big deal to me. Beyond that, the Anvil is not a virtual sheet of paper. It is a heavily customized blog and setting it all up again on a new host would take many hours of intense work that I think I made clear around the New Year definitely wasnt what I wanted to be dealing with in 2008.

D–nit, at this point I do not even want to blog. Can anyone really blame me? Just look at the economy, the Presidential campaign, the continued rocket attacks into Gaza, the Stock Market being bought up by greedy Arab Oil Barons, and on and on and on.

Frankly, too much of what Ive been predicting all these years keeps happening and it looks like were going to elect a President that wont make things better, more likely far worse, in fact. Blogging to a few hundred awake readers and spending 40+ hours a week doing that is no longer an option for me. I have to start circling the wagons. I suggest many of you do the same.

This latest round of attacks on my Free Speech simply puts the exclamation point at the end of every sentence Ive been typing since 2003. Watch out! It looks like Im not lobbing softballs around here to be getting this much unwanted attention.

Hi. I know what you mean about having to move all the hidden codes that no one sees. I tried to moved to wordpress, but it was a different language that I did not have the time to learn, plus it did not accept some of the codes (javascript) that I had on my other site. Grrr.

I also understand what you mean by suppression. They are attacking Mark Steyn (I have a petition for him underneath the title of my site, Rosemary’s Thoughts), and the article I wrote, “Muslim blogger fights back for Ezra Levant: UPDATE***“, sure brought more attention from a Muslim than I have had in a long time. The video is worth watching, so is reading the comments.

He started out praising me because I just wrote about his group to let people know what was there. Then after some info came across my desk, I wrote an update. All of a sudden was not ‘intelligent’ anymore! 🙄

There are a few people in Canada and the USA that are under attack (in the courts, no less) for using their first amendment right. Can you imagine that Muslims are allowed to say the Christ is offesive, so we musn’t say it, but they are free to say, ‘Death to America’? What the…?

Thank you for stopping over today. It’s good to know you are still around in spirit, if not blogging as often.

BTW, I’ve always been prepared because I live in California. You don’t have to tell me. I’m still waiting for the rest of the country to wake up! What’s up with all of this support for the Father of Amnesty? Good LORD…

You have confirmed what most of us suspected. It’s a shame. Inch by inch ‘they’ seem to be gaining ground. I too am frustrated at the Liberals, at the Islamic groups here in the United States that use our own laws and freedoms against us, and at the sorry lot we have for Presidential candidates. Many of us are blogging to the choir and it does get frustrating.

Know that you are in the hearts and minds of so many around the world and in the US.

Limping but not broken. 😈

Thanks for the support as per usual. Things will improve @ the Anvil in 2008. I’m simply being attacked at an opportune moment for my enemies. This doesn’t mean I will be beaten.

Not by a long shot.
