Is marksdailyapple's forum being attacked by the opposing industries?

 I read on Dave Asprey's forum from some computer nerds that Mark's forum is under a DDOS attack. I'm sure he's losing a massive amount of eyeballs due to random forum threads (so far most that i've wanted to visit) being unavailable . Is this cyberwarfare?  

I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist but I can only imagine Marks influence being the main factor in all this. It's one of the most popular health blogs on the internet.

There are ways to mitigate DDoS attacks.  Many internet providers do have anti-DDoS abilities, and there are third party providers that could be used as well.

 

Looking at www.marksdailyapple.com, it appears he's hosted with Amazon, so it's an AWS site, and they do have DDoS mitigation services: https://d0.awsstatic.com/whitepapers/DDoS_White_Paper_June2015.pdf

 

Mark's team should look into that.

I don't understand anything about computers and basically I am computer-illiterate, but every time I try to access Mark's Daily Apple forum, I get a message "this site blah blah blah may harm your comuter. A malicious software was blocked". The only other site that does that is Weston Price. Two sites that my computer consistently rates as "harmful".  Something I noticed, but never could understand why.

If Mark's forum is under attack, congratulations to him. It means he is actually big enough for others to consider him a threat.
