Since a few days I cannot access ANN.lu anymore. Does someone knows what happened to this site?

It was part of my daily life and I liked to read all the funny flamebaits and news. But when I try to connect then I always get an error information: "Network operation timed out".

Would be nice to know what happened to this site. I already miss ANN.lu. ?_?















Just fun... I was in the mood for it. ^_^

To be honest, it would be interesting to see what would happen if ann.lu were taken down for a month.

Would the trolls go away? ;)

I doubt anything would change (except for one month of lost revenue for me).

But I have a hard time taking this news item seriously, seeing how it's something of a Catch-22. Come on people, posting to a website saying you can't reach the website? Doesn't everyone have anything better to do on a Saturday evening than post on ANN? (And yes, I just returned home from an evening out. I suggest everyone do the same - maybe that will bring a new perspective to some. Then again, some people clearly have been drinking too much booze, judging by their actions.)

(And replying to myself, I don't know why I automatically associated "evening out" with "drinking too much booze". Hmm.)

LOL!

Christian, I hope you take some of the comments posted here seriously regards not allowing anonymous, non-registered non-"trusted" users post news. It would cut out a lot of the crap that gets posted.

You have my vote for this. ;)

Sorry if I'm pointing at the obvious, but I'm not so sure this "news" item is supposed to be taken seriously. :-P

Perhaps it was this "Just fun... I was in the mood for it. ^_^" that gave it away? Christian obviously did have a boozey night out. ;D

A month is a *very long time* for a "void" market. Browsing habbits would change. Without the ANN gossip and rumours both the site and the market would pretty much die IMO.
