The DoS attacks have barraged the site with requests for URLs like consciousreporter.com/obsceneword in various combinations (the obscene words actually used won’t be repeated here).
The cyber attackers clearly don’t want people to see the information provided by The Conscious Reporter. After being blocked, they persistently came back by another route, which shows their calculated intent. Their malicious intent is further demonstrated in the way they have taken pains to avoid raising page views on any real articles by overloading the site with requests for phoney pages instead. Their devious approach shows they have a strong desire to avoid indirectly boosting the content here in any way while relentlessly striving to shut this site down.
Evidently there is information provided here that some people do not want others to see. Whoever is behind it, their cyber attacks are a serious violation of free speech.
