TF Metals Report Hacked, Taken Down by Denial of Service Attack

Our friend TF of is currently under a denial of service attack which has taken down TFmetals.  Clearly large sites like TF in the PM movement is making TPTB very uncomfortable.
TFM's site is temporarily being hosted at his old blogspot site of until service can be restored.

From Turd:

For all who might be wondering, the site is currently being maliciously attacked by someone or something. The common term for this is a "Denial of Service" attack whereby the site is shut down by an overload of requests for access. The servers get overwhelmed and the result is a site shutdown.

Who is doing this and why are the questions we are trying to answer. In the meantime, please keep checking the site to see if it has come back up. Hopefully, by later today, we'll get back to business.

On a side note, you've surely noticed that silver has finally smashed through $34. With the BLSBS coming out tomorrow, I expect this rally to continue, probably all the way to heavy resistance between 35 and 35.50. Gold has broken out to and should continue rallying all the way to the major downtrend resistance line, somewhere near 1780.

Thanks for your patience. TF
