Our Support for LiveJournal

I'd also like to take a few minutes to publicly offer support to LiveJournal, where the team has been doing an incredible job in responding to and mitigating a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. If you haven't been able to reach LJ in the past few days, this is why; the current theory in the press is that the DDoS is a political statement being made against Russian-language bloggers using LJ as their platform. We wish the LJ team luck, perserverence, and a bottle of really good top-shelf liquor in trying to combat the problem.

We've seen increases in the number of people using the content importer to back up their content from LJ over the past few days, and with LiveJournal inaccessible during periods of heavy DDoS traffic, this can cause a problem with imports timing out or not otherwise succeeding. We'd like to ask you to consider holding off on starting a new import for a few days, until the problem can clear up a bit. Our importer is smart enough to retry an import a few times if the process times out before giving up completely, but minimizing the traffic that LJ needs to cope with can only help them out.
