The error message says "Sorry about that. Our technicians have been notified and should have this fixed very soon."

Sure, sure. "Technicians." "Notified." "Fixed."

No one at DDO fixed anything. The site isn’t being updated at all.

A third party library site probably went down for a while.

By who? The owning company that no longer exists, the registrant company that no longer exists, or the new subsuming company that does something completely different, has likely written off the site for tax purposes and likely probably doesn't even know the site exists?

DDO and DA are both anonymously owned at this point. The company that owns DDO used to be officially Juggle but that company itself is/was a shell. I am fairly sure it was for government harvesting of data in the first place and that Airmax1227 was a high ranking official in an extreme NSA op where severely outlandish hatespeech-outputters etc were 'handled' in ways much more than just a ban.

I am absolutely certain that either DDO itself or Airmax himself has ties to very high-up Govt. Surveillance because of some things to do with Airmax banning me and PMs between us. Something like this became a huge fiasco in a less private manner with a user named Malcolmxy who assumed like some scumbags do on createdebate, that he can just say whatever he wanted, threaten members of admin there etc... They tracked him down in no time and I am talking about speed and accuracy that is impossible without actually being tied to law enforcement yourself. I don't know the details and I don't want to, I know of the afterstory and based on what Airmax showed me he knew about me on PM, it makes absolutely no sense that that is a normal website that just happens to have expert investigation teams at hand.

Of course, then you may ask why would such a high-end project be overrun by the very types that CIA and NSA specialise in handling; pirated media and/or phishing link advertisers run by a scheme of bots.

The problem stems from the fact that the website allowed you to access it through the TOR network. If it offers anonymity, it is subject to sophisticated attack no matter what... Unless for whatever reason it had fallen out with Juggle and/or Airmax, wanted a new website to arise and arranged things to happen...

The thing is, I never understood the motive. You are far more likely to find a genuinely real-life threatening insane nutjob on a random shitposting board where you don't need to sign up than on sites like these, so by sheer probability and usage of resources, a project like this is unwise and more likely to just face your team with either intellectuals, amateurs, novices or trolls who don't really mean any harm. The problem with this is that they immediately allowed Bsh1 backend access here while on DDO he was kept at bay. This tells me that the entire site-running team is clearly different here even if the masterminds behind the overall project are pretty much the same.

WARNING BASED ON EXTENSIONS I USE AND ANTI-PHISHING PROTECTION THE DDO WEBSITE YOU ARE VIEWING IS A PHISHING SITE, DO NOT SIGN INTO IT!!!!

view it only through Firefox on private browsing mode, perhaps, with HTTPS Everywhere and Privacy Badger addons active, that seems to enable it without any fishy stuff. Make sure your settings for Cookie Protection etc are 'strict'.

Firefox has also established that it's a phishing site now, DO NOT VISIT IT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE IF YOU ARE going from a website you were signed into or if you're sign into DDO sign out ASAP!!!! It is completely compromised at this point.

The only way to safely do is is with those extensions active, preferably VPN too, and to go via Google search onto it. Google screens websites and ensures you 'enter the website' without any intermediary redirecting. The website itself is HTTPS but there is something about the certificate alerting extensions I use.

Oh, and ignore genius boy/chicken little - the site’s intermediate SSL certificate is out of date - probably because no ones updated it.

Maybe someone should go on debate org and post an address or something just to see if any moderators are still active on that site. If they are, they will delete the personal information. If it stays up, then they are inactive.

Ignore Ramshutu, the website is going to get you hacked and exploited if you keep using it, no matter how safe he tells you to feel on it.

There’s no shame in not knowing; a lot of what is happening on DDO is just the inherent behaviour of a site that isn’t being maintained.

Stuff will break, come back: and it will look like the site was fixed : in reality it’s a problem with a third party library linked in that breaks - and then gets fixed later by a third party.

Take the SSL stuff, there’s a whole lot of stuff you need to keep up to date for SSL, some you can do automatically, but if you don’t keep your certificates up to date or something gets moved onto different hosts: your certificates are mostly valid, but out of date. Browsers won’t report this as it’s not a big problem, but security plugins or SSL scans will pick it up. 

It’s nothing to do with scamming as the main host name still matches, only an intermediary (likely because the intermediate host changed). This is only a problem if someone is using a sported certificate to impersonate a legit site, but given that debate.org still has the full content - that’s clearly not the case, they just haven’t updated their certificate.

If hackers had control of debate.org, and wanted your passwords - for whatever nonsense reason; they could just update the SSL, and read the password being sent. Just because the data transmitted is SSL doesn’t mean the implementation of the website can’t see what you send.
