Why is Plastic down?

I realize this topic has nothing to do with Metafilter but, does anyone have any idea what has happened over at plastic.com? The site went dead on Tuesday night and I have been unable to get any information? Apologize about this, but would appreciate any information. Thanks in advance.

plastic - mefi exchange

Haven't yet registered at that other site? Plastic.com's own Carl Steadman is running a special promotional offer for MeFi addicts: sign up with your MeFi username and receive, for the low-low price of free, 10 karma and 10 mod points.

Now the question remains: What can Matt offer Plastic.com users in return? Perhaps registration itself is enough of an incentive.

Interesting comments by Nick Sweeney

Interesting comments by Nick Sweeney in Kottke.org about the differences between Plastic and Metafilter. (This is probably too obvious a link, But I thought there must be at least some people here who haven't seen this)

Banned French IPs redirect to Plastic.com

I know this has been discussed before, but I think it might be interesting to say that some part of France still can't access MeFi and are redirected to Plastic instead. (more inside, hopefully)

plastic is back

plastic.com appears to be back up, under new ownership -- maybe a change for the better?

Plastic.com has been down for a while; does anyone know what's up?

Apologies if this is the wrong venue, I can't think of another place to ask:
"Just give us a couple of days" said Plastic as they went offline about a week and a half ago. Anyone know if they're over and done with?? :(

30 minutes without the webs!

Plastic.com has been down for at least the last 30 minutes... Their web servers respond, but with a blank HTML document. (I didn't think this warranted a front-page post, but it might if this goes on for much longer.)

does anyone get a redirect to plastic.com when they hit mefi?

does anyone get a redirect to plastic.com when they hit mefi? i've just started working at a copy place that starts with kink and ends with o's, and when i try to access mefi at work i get sent to plastic.com.

overheard in the plastic.com conference room

overheard in the plastic.com conference room:

"Ok kids, it's redesign time! I say we reduce the slashdottedness by... oh, say 12%, and increase the weblog/metafilter look by 28%."

OK to post stories from plastic.com?

Directly arising from a thread that I posted on Metafilter about the pill and its effect on mate choice, another question arrives inexorably - I found the article in question via Plastic.com - which as we all know is the 'Metafilter it's not OK to like'. I suppose this is an issue of etiquette or policy - is it appropriate to post stories for discussion here which have already been covered there?
