A couple of years ago I got a website: FarmersForkingMonsanto.com. My intention was to simply fill up the site with pics of those of us with farms, gardens or even in front of a grocery. No blogs, no commentaries....just pictures of those of us that have had enough. Operating on the premise that a picture is worth a thousand words, I can deduce that a thousand pictures are worth a million words. Sort of an everyday, ever present gathering. No other agenda, just a site filled with faces of those of us that cannot travel to a million person march.
Somehow, after posting a handful of pictures of us and a few friends, standing on our farms/in our gardens with a fork...the site was somehow closed. It expired, but IT'S BACK a/o today.
I want to try and give this another go~ If you want to add your picture, please p.m. me with a pic and your permission to add it. I plan on waiting to have a few dozen pics before populating the site. No cost, no hidden agenda, just an ever present and hopefully ever growing group of us to March On The Internet every day, every hour.

Nice one. Lets stick it to them lol. Its no surprise to me that the page went down. I'm sure that monster has people working for them just to shut down web sites like yours. It certainly would not surprise me.

Well, it's down today, "503 Service Unavailable". Whois says the domain is valid, but I see you're using Godaddy, and that may be the problem. They're seriously over-extended.

Also, they've been known to pull domains for any sort of complaint without regard to validity, and you may lose the domain that way.
