DNS was the first diagnois, but I tested the .onion site over Tor (ie 
"dark web") and once it wasn't accessible it became clear it wasn't DNS.

I have no idea about the procedures and processes on editing BGP routing 
tables at a FB or wherever, but it seems a little crazy that you can 
have a single-point of failure like one wily/confused/hung-over Yankee 
fan could fat finger with an impact like that. Not necessarily 
literally, but you get my point...

Jan noted in a tweet that over 12000 domains used the Facebook DNS as auth.

Am I the only one who was distracted by reading and chatting about it 
all day?
