    Matt Cutts might have knocked them out temporarily with his acceptance of the name of the update and pointing to them for more information.

    Or its just coincidence

    forums.searchengine.watch is intermittant. Sometimes I get a database message, sometimes not.

    What are the odds that all three have issues?

    Maybe it's tied into the Googlem update. Google updates they get 3-4 times more traffic than they are used to and BOOM the server doesn't like it.

    Might be the case with threadwatch...... I doubt WMW.

    So it's not just me. I'd assumed I'd been booted again for not having the right IP address. Or maybe for posting about "Update Brett". Hopefully some time we'll be able to get back in again and I can blog some more about "Update Mick".

    So all those guys have the same server company? Does anyone know what's happening over there?

    It's not that bad, man!

    I've always found WMW to be a quality resource.

    it's the kind of forum where you go to find out what you want to know, not a place to really hang out. heck, you're prolly not allowed to ... they have some kind of loitering laws over there ;)

    Code (markup):
    Notice traffic is being looping back and forth between 172.16.101.4 and 172.16.101.5. But even more interesting is 172.16.*.* is a non-routable block of IP addresses. I'm not even sure why those addresses are responding to pings, because they should not be (and certainly no public traffic should be routed through them).
