The website deathtogreysquirrels has gone down in a blaze of publicity – national coverage of this light-hearted but controversial website seems to have brought so much traffic that the site was swamped – or possibly the site is down for more sinister reasons. The Ranger sincerely hopes that free expression has not been unfairly stifled by whatever means.
The site has been unavailable since at least 6pm on 16 December, probably earlier. The two days before had brought a huge surge of traffic to Naturenet with people searching for deathtogreysquirrels (yes, we do look at our server logs – that’s one way we always know how to put the latest must-have info on Naturenet) although this is now (18 Dec) petering out, presumably because the site itself is down and because the national coverage (in the Daily Mail) is in the past. To check if the site is up or down right now click here. Please do let us know if it returns- or if you know anything about its disappearance. Update 16 January 2006: it seems that the website is gone for ever, after its owner made some sort of truce with the squirrels. How queer!
