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
