no no no no. you're probably too young, but you were absolutely viciously attacked and driven off your server in 2000 if you proved you could build an audience. REPEATEDLY. we at VNN were banned from literal PAGE COUNTER gidgets.
@maxtepafray we were ddosed and driven off servers repeatedly after starting in august 2000 (vanguardnewsnetwork). we were denied every possible resource. had to keep finding new servers. we had a legal threat to our url by a billion-dollar company in very short order. every time we did anything public, the website would be inaccessible. media camped out to harass our supporter's pregnant wife. on and on and on. dont listen to what liars say - everything that happened after 2010 happened before
