Appears Lycos may have bit off more than they can chew.

It may be just me, but at the moment I cant access the makelovenotspam.com website.

Before anyone asks, I am the network admin, so if I cant get there, then theres often a problem elsewhere.

Anyhow, how ironic would it be if the spammers directed all their traffic to lycos, taking their site offline.

can anyone else confirm the downtime?

in fact, perhaps the reason we cant get it "is due" to the adverse effect on some core routers.

We do a tracert from here and this is what we get.

Best marketing Dilbert I saw was on that had Dilbert transfered to marketing, over the door was a big sing that said 'Marketing Dept - 4 drink minimun'. We where working late and our office was next to Marketing so we blew it up as big as the copier could go and plastered it over the entrance to the dept caused much hillarity the next morning, marketing dir thought it was so good he put a small framed one above his door

I think you'll find this is just them/someone blocking icmp requests at their firewall/router.

Granted, but typically the packets do end up reaching their destination.

This one, does not.

Not if the end box is firewalled, the only time the packets will carry on is if icmp requests are blocked before the end box and/or a device in between is having problems.

it seems lycos had been succesful in knocking a few spam sites offline, hooray.
but.
Lycos have taken the site offline and several ISP's have blocked access to the Lycos site, you see these fukking ISP's can do something about this sh1t i get in my inbox everyday but taking out these annoying tossers would affect their bottom line
