GLP needs international mirrors now!
I'm curious as to the resiliency status given the world we live in, i.e. Would you lose the web or just sites like GLP..?

Does the latter concern you enough?

If I were voting for presence straddling two continents or Poker, I know which I would vote for.

(Not that the poker isn't great).

You can't be kept in the dark if you're still able to have discussions with like-minded people.

On the other hand, a global internet outage is too obvious.

Think about it.

Why would they turn off all the lights in the city if they want just one house in darkness.

An all off approach would be too much of an equaliser.

if they are targeting one person, a international mirror will not make a difference.

Just use a VPN or proxy at that point.

Part of the reason I posted this thread is because I've had to resort to using a cellular network to get to GLP (right now) because it and only it is inaccessible through my major ISP service.

I don't care if it's just me, as there are always means, but people including the owners should be conscious of what's possible and has gone before in relation to other sites, and make arrangements.

Sadly though, I've just noticed there are at least 2 threads from 2010 suggesting similar and I don't see any engagement with the idea.

Use a VPN, either your ISP or DNS provider might be blocking you out, check out cyberghostvpn.com, pretty reliable and free.

What country is the site being hosted in currently? I'm assuming the USA. Sounds like it needs to have a mirror in another country that is far away from doom, like Antarctica, or Easter Island.

One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Exactly. But it's not really about the doom. More about preserving freedom of expression from those who don't want you to have it.
