Not to defend the moderators here but they were probably experiencing the same problems we all have for the LAST 2 -3 DAYS. It is also summer in the northern hemisphere and the problem occurred over a weekend so the techno-geek who could fix the situation was probably out at his/her beach house or wherever.
Usually they are pretty good about posting warnings about planned outages but there was no notice of any kind about this one - might as well have been offline for all the functionality sailnet possessed.
The URL *.envolve.com has now been removed and the site is working as expected. If this was an advertisers website I'd be more pissed that whoever tested (QA) the introduction of this URL did not catch how it totally disabled sailnet forums.
Since no official notice of this unplanned outage has been posted we are free to speculate on who to blame and how to punish them.
And since when is the word "scripts" not allowed here?
