DO OUTAGES MEAN ANYTHING?
ARE THEY RELATED TO CISPA?
Am I the only one who wonders what is going on when there are issues with many major sites close together? Yesterday, Twitter was down. Today I tried to log into Yahoo mail and it was down.
Twitter is still giving Internal Server Errors regularly and I’m getting a lot of tweets that say “Tweet Does Not Exist” when I try to retweet them, but they’re sitting right there and then go away.
Twitter’s Internal Server Error Failures mean
you should expect another Twitter outage.
Twitterfeed has been crawling for weeks – sometimes taking many minutes to ever load any page. Now we are getting internal server errors trying to move off FeedBurner.
Funny “coincidence” – or related? Internal server errors
on Twitter AND on FeedBurner when I have NEVER
seen internal server errors on either one before.
I find it highly unlikely that NO ONE clicked the link for my post about FeedBurner possibly going away – not even when Amy Vernon, the Bacon Queen and highest rated woman Digger ever – retweeted it – so I click through to Bit.Ly and try to share it:
But Bit.ly Bitmark sharing isn’t working either:
Whenever many different sites that are theoretically separate start failing at the same time, it is likely that they have something in common that is causing the failures.
If different kinds of Internet access are down at the same time, again, it is likely that there is something in common.We know there are people who want to control what we can see and share online.
We know that bills keep being introduced that claim to protect copyrights but can actually be used to silence bloggers – especially bloggers like me.
HOW TO STOP CISPA
CISPA is “The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), a bill introduced by Michigan Republican Rep. Mike Rogers that passed the House by a comfortable 248-168 vote margin in April.

NOTE: In every movement there are people who appear to be supporters who are actually infiltrators trying to stop progress. This can not really be helped, so we must just do what we must do and let that sort itself out later.
