Bay Guardian editor Tim Redmond says a “denial of service” attack appears to have shut down his paper’s Web site on primary election day (June 6) — a day when voters might be checking the paper’s endorsements before they go to the polls. The left-wing Daily Kos blog did a poll of its readers, and 48% percent (54 readers, as of 10 a.m. on June 7) felt the outage was due “probably (to) Republican election malfeasance and interference.” The 6-6-6 prophecy was second with 25 votes. Third, with 22 votes, was the opinion that it was just a normal technical issue. The outage would have forced those wishing to reference the Guardian’s endorsements to get a printed copy of the newspaper.
