New York, NY (UPI) - Web site Open Salon.com was down for several hours today. According to an unnamed source in their midtown Manhattan offices, the outage was due to a reverse vortex effect, when million of Spammers ceased posting because of the high heat and humidity over much of the eastern third of the US.
The source explained that the dearth of spam postings actually reversed the flow of traffic on Open Salon. Fortunately for human poster none of the content was lost to external internet tubes.
When real content was discovered to being "sucked down the internet rat hole," as the unnamed source described, the site was shut down until the system could be stabilized.
According the Open Salon's source, "we didn't lose any content. Even the crap that gets posted by furry animals who think they can write was also kept for posterity."
