SCHotline: To our readers, our sincere regrets…

South Carolina’s most prominent and influential political web site, SCHotline.com, was the victim of an Internet attack launched at the end of President Obama’s speech on health care.

SCHotline severs were down for approximately 24 hours and during that time we unable to fulfill our mission to you, our readers. For this we sincerely apologize.

We have taken additional precautions to insure this will not happen again in the future and are confident in our ability to continue uninterrupted service to you.   Unless the Internet attackers are smarter than us, uh…hmmm.

The facts:  With in minutes of Joe Wilson’s remark to the president our email boxes started to ping with notifications non-stop!  This was the traffic recorded in less than an hour.
