Oath Keepers Website Down?
« on: May 05, 2016, 09:29:25 am »

Has Oathkeepers.org been moved?  It will not load and the TapATalk app does not recognize it anymore.

The domains and cert on .org & .net have expired.  National is all over it.

This is the message from last morning:

Greetings,

I know you are expecting to see something else, but as all things are not as they seem. I guess the Oath Keepers should have gotten a better IT person to keep track of when their domains expired. I will entertain offers for these doamins for twenty four hours before I put them up for auction. If anyone is doubts the legal purchasing of these domains I have the receipt's and will be willing to show them before purchase. I can be reached at oathkeepersauction@gmail.com

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!
http://oathkeepers.org/Greetings,

Coming soon a New Oath Keepers ( not affiliated with any other group) with no membership fees, no greed.

From this morning:

Yes, apparently somebody noticed that whoever is in charge of the oathkeepers.org and oathkeepers.net domains neglected to notice that their registration had expired and snarfed them, demanding a ransom to get them back.

I expect, though don't know, that the Oath Keepers folks will choose to buy new domains rather than pay the ransom to the ne'er-do-well who stole them. That's what I would do in such a situation, though NearlyFreeSpeech.net is much too good at sending plentiful email warnings for that to be likely to happen here.

Well put Bill.  I see the benefit of someone taking the opportunity to pick-up where others have dropped unknowingly.  Personally I would have sent a notice if I were aware.  I think that most others would too.  Only a slime-ball would do this.

The odd thing is...

whois oathkeepers.org
 ...
Updated Date: 2016-05-05T16:07:20Z
Creation Date: 2009-03-01T21:07:55Z
Registry Expiry Date: 2017-03-01T21:07:55Z
 ...

If it expired in 2016, it should have been on the anniversary of the creation date, just like the expiry date is.  How did it get grabbed 2 months into its current year?

It is starting to smell like a -gag- instead of a hijacking by purchase.

Registrars usually provide a grace period before returning an expired domain to availability. I guess that was two months for the oathkeepers.org domain. Pretty sloppy.

No. It says "updated date", which likely means that the perp guessed their password and changed the name server. The domains may not be lost after all. Inside job?

I'm tempted to email that address something quite obscene.

Sounds like something a LEO/JBT would do,
maybe to get back at some OK?

I would put nothing past what they would do to anyone they think is against them.

Wow! When I consider my last two comments on Oath Keepers, this turn of events is almost comical.

Admittedly, I have not been particularly approving of recent trends there.

One of the new moderators operates on his emotions and personal agendas. He is overly sensitive about comments regarding rogue or oath breaking LEOs. He also will not just admit that he is Muslim. Every time the word is used, he goes into Muslim defense mode. The clues are all there. I believe he is a black American Muslim, and that is OK. It's the way he goes about the Muslim defense mode that bothers me. The feeling is that he is too ashamed to admit it, ...and I know he is not obligated to reveal or state his religion, but I get the feeling he prefers the membership not know that a Muslim is moderating the forum. That seems a little disingenuous to me. Of course, this is all conjecture on my part, so don't take me to the woodshed over it. Think of it as sharing my thoughts over the campfire.

A recent thread there was regarding a Muslim only cemetery. Some were against it. Others defended it. I simply stated, "I have nothing against a bunch of dead Muslims being buried together" .

My last comment on Oath Keepers before the site vanished was in a thread about how the forum had recently turned into a cyber ghost town. The debate was about why this was happening. Someone said it was due to the warmer weather.  I commented that the change was more than a few days old and personally,  my interest in Oath Keepers has been waning rapidly after more than 6 years with them. My final thought was, "I think my annual dues are coming due soon and I will be thinking very hard about whether to renew." Then the next time I try to log in,  there is a message about a coming New Oath Keepers with no dues. Poetic/Ironic.

No, I don't have the computer savvy to hi-Jack a website,  so it wasn't me. :D

It appears that they're making progress towards restoring the Oath Keepers web site but I'll let Elias reveal details, as and when he decides.

Fact: Oath Keepers still owns both domains, dot org and dot net.
Fact: Someone has attacked the domain service.
Fact: Oath Keepers is working hard and fast to restore the sites to public access at each proper url, oathkeepers.org and oathkeepers.net.
Fact: I should not say more at this time, but anticipate being free to render a quite interesting story about this "soon".

Salute!
