Either CNET has a server problem somewhere or they're victims of a DOS attack. Sad

but it did load the a-father-owns-Congress page.

Because it is possible to access new threads somewhat, but difficult to impossible to access older ones, just hours older. One time I ended up at a thread from 2003 started by Ian from Oz, that's 10 years ago and that wasn't the link I clked on for sure.
