SoylentNews.org Temporarily Offline?

SoylentNews.org (including li694-22.members.linode.com) is offline at the moment. The site currently returns the following:
Error 503 Service Unavailable

There has been a lot of drama going on with SoylentNews lately. The nominal founder, Barrabas, wanted to create a for-profit business, but the majority of volunteers wanted to avoid the potential for another sell-out which lead to the Slashcott in the first place. Due to conflicts with those volunteers, Barrabas has sold the domain to a new and unknown owner. If a deal between the mystery domain owner and NCommander and his volunteer 'Overlords' cannot be reached, the Site Formerly Known as SoylentNews can be found on the default Linode address.

Yep, and you all fell for it hook line and sinker. Look how you repeat it here as if it were the truth while a site admin comes in saying 'botched DNS transfer.'

Shame on you clueless drama-mongers. I thought you'd be smarter, but apparently thinking that was a mistake.

And it was 400TB. Not 40. 40TB isn't even enough for my video chat software and the amount of servers I can set up and run, with 200 concurrent video users in them, each pushing 30 FPS (assuming their cams have enough lighting and their computers can handle 30 FPS.) Near-instant DDoS mitigation guarantees require a ton of bandwidth, even in the cloud.
