    There had been an earlier announcement on the site advising that site might be down for a few hours sometime thus week for maintenance, site changes and upgrades are expected to take place this week.

    So my post above may be a false alarm. Time will tell.

    Of premature....

    Jumping at shadows is not going to help us.

    The only plan most of us can do, is push/suggest the forum owners (especially if they solicit donations for operations and it's not free) is to consider ditching Amazon, Go Daddy, etc, linked services for pro freedom hosting services.

    This is the only forum I am party to at this time, however I read a lot of the others... the months ahead look like they're gonna be tough. Don't expect our fake law-breakers (I mean "makers"  :rolleyes ) to protect us...

    I looked into it because I knew someone might eventually ask.

    AZGO is owned by a company called Second Media.  Second Media is a outdoor, camping, hunting, fishing affinity channel that aggregates content (forums) on similar topics.

    A Plan B is probably a good idea but I don't think this site is getting shut down any time soon.  Most likely is that search results to bring you here will get pushed o the 15th page on a Google / Yahoo / Bing search.

    This morning I executed several parallel searches in Google and DDG with the same terms each time.  All results had us on top of the search pile.  So far so good.  No issues here.
    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we, as a society, lose that affinity, we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

    GT -

    Nice research.  :thumbup

    There in lies what helps us some... smaller forums probably won't attract the attention of anyone outside of it's users.

    At least there's that!

    I presume the ones that will get hit are the well known national ones like AR15.com was.
