Yeah i heard slash had a denial attack early this morning, but i doubt that a site managed by an army of pro's would fall down from a simple denial attack. (could it be that spammer dude??) Oh by the way it took them 5 minutes to counter the denial attack.
I was wondering if that was the case here too, but yeah i realized that if it was a denial attack then the site itself would not load. Oh well hope it gets fixed soon.
