1442079 story Hosting Service Closes 3000 Blogs Without Notice 617 Posted by timothy on Tuesday June 15, 2004 @09:34PM from the and-such-small-portions dept. marmoset writes "Citing the high costs of running the free service, performance concerns, and health problems, Dave Winer closed down the weblogs.com hosting service without any prior notice. As many as 3000 sites are now inacessible, and the users who want to transfer their data elsewhere have to ask (politely) for it to be exported. As might be expected, reactions range from understanding to enraged. Netcraft has a report, too."
