I apologize to my readers for the site being mostly inaccessible for the past 24 hours. The Israeli Channel 10 TV news program ran a story about my Gideon Sa’ar post and it apparently caused a massive server load. This caused Hostgator, my web host, to suspend my site. I didn’t find out about this till 90 minutes after it happened. Even after explaining the cause of the overload and that the end of the program would cause an end of the overload, my host denied me access to my site for six hours and didn’t finally lift the suspension into a few minutes ago, 26 hours after the site was restricted.
This is a perfect example of a web host enslaved to its protocols (they maintained that a plugin was caused the server overload because that has happened to other customers) and unwilling to listen to a customer explaining the real circumstances of a situation and reacting flexibly and accordingly.
I know some of you had access and many others did not for which I apologize. You might want to take this into account the next time you have to choose a web host (though frankly I haven’t found a single one I’ve liked and I’ve used a number).
If you or anyone you know is still having trouble accessing the site, please let me know.
