[INFO] (more) Email server issues

If you've tried emailing me in the last 24 hours, you've probably noticed my incoming mail server once again, has issues. No clue what those issues actually are, Domain Monster have advised they're looking into it.

Needless to say, I can't receive emails at present I'm afraid. Can still be reached via the several forums I frequent/own/manage.

Dear - seriously?

I sent an abuse report recently (the report in this case, was actually sent to, but =, as I do several hundred times per day, and a few minutes ago, this arrived;

So my question to - when did an abuse report become spam?

The more hillarious part, the report concerned a number of credit card fraud sites (my friends at DirectI have already now suspended all but one of them (all but one, because one of them ( wasn't with DirectI)).

dDos:, server

You've probably noticed by now that the server that houses and (amongst others), is down and has been for at least 48-72 hours or there abouts. The reason I'm told, is the server is still under a dDos attack.

No idea who is responsible at this point, or why, and am waiting for the host to send me further details. In short, once I know - you will.
