If you’ve been trying to access The American Thinker website for your daily dose of rational, well written conservative thought, you’ve probably discovered that the domain has changed hands and a “parking” domain has taken over.
Not quite sure what the problem is but in an email from AT’s editor Tom Lifson, it seems to have something to do with the domain registration and the company responsible for registration with ICANN. Thanos at Noblesse Oblige has more:
Iâ€™m not sure whatâ€™s going on at American Thinker, but apparently thereâ€™s a mistake over the Domain, or some outright hijacking. If you go there you will hit an â€œall ad siteâ€. Earlier someone was able to get through and saw this post, I have only a partial quote from a post by Andrew (sic) Lifson I assume:

Please stand by
April 24, 2007
Some readers have had or will have difficulty reaching our website over the next few days. Our control over our domain has been affected by the error of another company. We are working to fully resolve the problem. Please bearâ€¦
Unfortunately I donâ€™t have the rest of it…
As a contributor to that excellent site, I hope that Tom can resolve the situation quickly and get his baby up and running again. And as a daily reader, I miss the insight and intelligence offered up by what I believe to be the finest E-Zine on the net, much superior to anything on the left and rivaling any of the conservative on line magazines like NRO or Weekly Standard on the right.
The American Thinker returns!
