Politics.ie is gone this evening afaict.

Their twitter account states they are back but it's not resolving to anything but a database error.

Twitter account mentioned something to do with UK traffic surge based on what's going on there, so what's going on in the UK that might cause this?

My mistake the tweets I read are marked, “Jun 9”, I assumed they were latest since they appear to the most recent. So nothing to do with current events.

A good point raised on politicalirish.com was perhaps preparation for the GDPR has gone wrong (Ulsterbank & Co style) as they too considered the next port of call for any potential exodus.

So that might answer the both questions. :|

:? GDPR applies equally wherever in the world you are. It relates to the data subjects (residents of the EU), not to where the corporations are located. Anyone telling you otherwise is another charlatan in a crowded GDPR field.

Do users not have to give an email address address to sign up? It should be an easy matter to email all the users and let them know what's happening. If the website is not gone for good, then it's a way of reminding dormant users to get back online and start ranting again.
