It has been down for 2 days for me. I sure hope it returns cause I LOVE that extension.
well, i got some kind of "account has been closed" message when i went there
Yeah. i wonder whatever happened to it
This doesn't look good. Here's what I get when I visiont bugmenot.com:

images/ is empty, don't know about the other two.
bugmenot.com is still listed as registered through godaddy.com with Katz Global Domain Name Trust of Tucson, Arizona as Registrant...
Ping and Lookup: 'failed to resolve name bugmenot.com'
With all the publicity about BugMeNot recently (just check Google News), it had to be just a matter of time before they were brought down, legally or otherwise!!
And no alternative in sight to replace BugMeNot!!!
Our host pulled the plug. I reckon they were pressured. If anyone has got some secure, preferably offshore hosting in mind then please let us know so we can get the service back up as soon as possible.
Glad you responded, bgm. I hope you are able to get this worked out soon. BGM was/is a very cool idea.
BGM is still a cool and good idea even though its not working right now. I hope it will be brought back to life like a cyber phoenix.
These days, this is a no-brainer...
to paraphrase a Hank Williams tune: "If they've got the money, honey, they've got the clout!"
Certain entities insist on invading your privacy (even if they tell you otherwise) and will not just sit back and be overruled, even by a majority!!
Well, let's resurrect the question in these General Forums and maybe someone here might have some ideas...
Got to get the hosting sorted first of all. This is more of an inconvenience than anything as it is easy to keep skipping hosts.
Would be nice not to be shut down every few weeks though
But someone might come up with a near-perfect solution by the time you're up-and-running...
To be honest the whole system is flawed in the fact that it is so centralized. It would be nice if someone came up with a plugin that could be fed from multiple sources. Each source could be a list of accounts maintained by anyone with basic technical ability.
The real power would come if the end-user could find and combine multiple lists and keep them up-to-date / synced easily.
