We need help. We need help from you, our readers. It costs money to run a site like this and with the recent DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks, as Jane noted earlier, the bills are big right now. RF Shunt thinks these attacks are the sincerest form of flattery fear, it wouldn’t be proper for me to say what I think!

From Jane’s earlier post:

Our willingness to go against the beltway grain and cover issues in the way we do is no doubt what has opened us up to attacks, but we’re not going to back down. We need our community to band together and defend our publication’s existence and work.

We have a terrific community here at FDL that has always been extremely generous about supporting us when we’re in need. And if we cannot overcome these technical hurdles and pay these bills, the attackers could be successful in silencing us and we could be in serious jeopardy

So if you can, please chip in a bit to help us continue. You a great community and we value your support, we wouldn’t be here now if it weren’t for you.

I know I’ve learned so much coming here, as you have too. I thought I was politically aware but I was so naive. And maybe I haven’t liked what I’ve come to know about our American politics, but I’m proud to be part of an effort to right this wayward ship of state. Thank you all so much.

Can you donate to help FDL stay online?
