Fast end for AFA's fast food fast?

by Jeremy Hooper

Could the American Family Association's short, completely ineffective, non-headline-grabbing, mostly-ignored McDonald's boycott be over already? Well we're not sure, but this is how its accompanying website currently looks:

(as of 8/6 at 6:58 PM)
Picture 6-145

Possible scenarios:


(a)
Ronald McDonald has sharpened his hacking skills

(b) Temporary web work going on; the site will return shortly

(c) The AFA has realized that this boycott is going absolutely nowhere with nary a development that even they can spin into a "win," so they're bringing it to a quiet end

(d) The AFA has banned our IP from visiting the site, just like they've banned our comments and redirected/ "Rick Rolled" all of our links to their One News Now site

(e) They're taking a break to pick up some McFlurries and fries

(f) They caught Wendy making out with the Dairy Queen and so have decided to redirect their endeavor

We'll keep you posted!

**UPDATE: Fun over. The site is now back up.

Your thoughts

I don't think you're blocked. I can't get there, either.

No, me either, Mark. That possibility was more of just a subtle way to highlight the AFA's ridiculous practices of banning comments from certain people and links from certain sites.

I have tried that site several times now, and it is still down. They either have some really inept technical support, or their server crashed, or they have given up, or something. Too funny!

Yeah it's not working for me either. :-P

I'm able to get there this morning so either their server really was down or you are blocked. Cheers and keep up the good work guys!

The site is loading for me at the moment.. and I'm sure it wasn't in my cache.

Yea, it's back up now. I added an update on the post.
