Some day I will understand why Fark will take two links to the same source, with equally interesting (or non-interesting) headlines, and greenlight whichever one has the less comments.

Hopefully this isn't to create difficulty in news getting out if they decided to go for widespread use of chemical weapons.  Turn off the ability to communicate, commit attrocities.  The early chemical rounds were simply ones and twos by local commanders.  If they lined up their artillery outside of Homs or Allepo and fired off dozens and dozens of chem rounds the casualties could be in the thousands.

Well like it or not it does. Outages are not uncommon was my point so you can't use them as an indication of anything other than an outage. When I posted that Tehran was out too (and still is and has been for at least the last 24 hours), does that mean that Iran is under attack as well?

www.internettrafficreport.com

Now that Syria is experiencing an outage is something to take note of however that's not enough to speculate on what may or may not be happening there.

Enh, just an undersea cable getting cut due to an earthquake.  Took a few days and everything had to re-route through Australia.

Missile factory and less than 24 hours ago. The link to Iran was down before that event happened (as you can see in the graph above). Or are you saying that the Iranians have somehow gotten the plans to Obamas time machine and shut it down before it happened. The other Tehran link is working just fine BTW as is the one in Northern Iran (Karaj). The internet went down in Syria for 2 days back in November as well and it wasn't at the hands of the government. All of the ISPs in Damascus are in one building and apparently Damascus is in the middle of a huge power outage.

Now this may be a precursor to something going on but it also might not be.All I'm saying is until there is some sort of confirmation that the government shut it down (not an impossibility) that there are also other things that can cause portions of the internet to go down for extended periods of time. As I'm always fond of reminding people, mechanical things break when you don't expect them to and when you need them the most all of the time. Correlation vs causation and all of that.

Probably not.

BTW, just an FYI regarding you profile (Nice work BTW) .. the "Hotlinked image" etc notifications didn't start as a justification for bandwidth theft or anything like that. They started after the "pickle incident" back when quite a few image hosts were having security/database issues, and hotlinked images would sometimes change. Fark later changed coding to prevent an image that does not match the dimensions, name, and filesize (I think) from displaying inline if they did not match those that were originally posted, but the the disclaimer had gained farkmeme status by then.

Basically it was a way to (somewhat) cover your ass (literally) if the cutekittens.jpg you posted suddenly changed into an image that would earn you an immediate timeout with prejudice.

The best part of his bio:
Same goes for people who see an article about gun laws and just post a picture of their gun. You both have clearly demonstrated the ability to grasp some of the grosser details and context of the story. But this is Fark and we have a much higher standard for thread participation.
If there was ever an approriate time for the Bender "Oh wait, you're serious?" picture, it is here. But I would just hotlink it. Hotlinking is like cartheft. If you don't want your bandwidth stolen, use hotlink protection to change the image to gay brony porn. (Like locking the doors and activating the alarm) but if you don't care and want the recognition of your picture out there, by all means, park at the ghetto 7-11 and leave the doors unlocked and engine running. Many pictures that are posted have the website and/or creater name on them, still giving them advertisement, so they are still coming out ahead.

So in honor of trappedspirit I have hotlinked a....well, something to do with a gun....and....I really don't know what.
