Blog back online

My webhosting company took it offline without telling me – they said I was abusing their server. Finally they have figured out that it was a problem with their reporting software, not me.

Anyway it is back online.

UPDATE: Slicehost did the right thing by me. They apologized and gave me a months credit on my hosting account.

I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!

    Glad to hear they got it sorted out. Did you get an apology?

      @Heath Heath, yes, they apologized, I am waiting to hear from management if I get credit towards my account. I have spent ages over the past month trying to figure out the reported "abuse" of system resources.

    You need more robust hosting services if you are going to be having these problems regularly.
