    put it past the Haterz.

    Maybe a DOS attack of some sort, though...

    •  Perfect logic, if you think about it (4+ / 0-)

      Make the site un-navigable (sp?) the first day and they figure most people will say "Aw fuggit" and not bother signing up at all.

      •  So the GOP 'win' in a way-stopping ACA for effect. (4+ / 0-)

        They do gots the Money to do the crap they do, over and over and over again.

        I believe it was part of Their plan to stop Obamacare one way or another- not a coincidence in my opinion.

        that's the operative word.

        But websites big and small are under constant attack from script kiddies, identity thieves and everyone in between.

        If the might Amazon.com can go down (and they have redundancy and security up the wazoo) then anybody can go down.

        The slow response, etc doesn't bug me at all...poor user interface however - that could have been done better.
