2:04am PST -- Criminals are attacking feedly with a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS). The attacker is trying to extort us money to make it stop. We refused to give in and are working with our network providers to mitigate the attack as best as we can.
We are working in parallel with other victims of the same group and with law enforcement.
I would be remiss were I not to point out that aforementioned minor inconvenience is only possible because you people -- yes, you -- have decided that you prefer centralized services with big, gaping, candy-like single points of failure over the kind of decentralized infrastructure that is actually implicit in RSS. You have to actually work at it to break the design in this way.
