    This is just to let you guys know that Aweber is down and any subscriber signups are not working. This happened yesterday as well but it only lasted a short while. This one has been a lot longer.

    You can get updates on Aweber twitter page.

    UPDATE : They said they have a ddos team working on it through the night.

    My interpretation is that this will last till tomorrow.

    Lets hope they get some ddos protected servers as a result of this down time, this is not good for a lot of people running their service.

    This is costing me a lot my entire system runs through Aweber. They better compensate their users for this.

    I just don't understand why some people are such dicks. Whats the point of doing a DDOS on this site?

    That's just not the way forward... I wonder what they hope to gain? I wonder if there's a "send us $100 trillion dollars" email that went to Aweber...

    Shit no wonder hits were so low today. Analytics never got a change to load due to Aweber javascript.

    This affects everything since all my traffic passes through an squeeze page before I send them to an offer. Aweber better give its users like a month free or something better because you would expect a company like aweber to be better prepared for this, especially with so many other companies getting hit with ddos attacks.

    This can cost me up to a few grand.

    I can't believe they were hit again. I sure hope they provide some sort of compensation.
