The horror, the horror: users of WordPress were hit with a denial-of-service (DoS) attack over the weekend, which silenced bloggers and their eager commentators. WordPress decided to inform users by e-mail (but not Shark Tales, oddly enough — how come we’re not good enough for WordPress spam?).

One unnamed user said told IDG News Service they were down for an entire 15 minutes, which is an eternity for online blabbermouths.

Fortunately, Shark Tales was goofing off over Ontario’s new Family Day long weekend and was thereby immune to any problems. There’s no better way to deal with system downtime than to enjoy a little downtime of your own.
