It would appear that someone wants to prevent me from having an online presence.
I do not know if the two events are connected, but on Friday 2nd September my web hosting company suspended my account after a compliant stating that my journalism on the site was damaging Rangers FC as a trading entity.
The same day as my site went down HMRC staff was in Ibrox, it wasn’t a social call.
Now as I write this on TCN my site is down again. This time it is more serious.
It is a DOS attack.
The Denial Of Service attack is a criminal offence in many countries including the UK.
My web hosting company considers this attack on my site to be professional (i.e. someone paid for it) and probably originates in Russia.
Russian gangs are known to specialise in this type of cyber crime.
I will almost certainly have to upgrade my server and take other precautions.
This will be costly, but the only other option is to give up and that is not really feasible for me.
Once more I’m grateful for the facility that TCN affords me in getting the news out to the Celtic Family.
This is a setback and an obstacle, but it will not stop me.
That’s a promise.
