First PNAC, Now Conservapedia?

Last week it was noted throughout the blogosphere that the far right-wing Neocon PNAC website has been suspended. Visitors to the PNAC site are now greeted with a message stating the site has been "suspended" and to "contact the billing department".

H/T to TP for the image.

At least they can't hide from the WayBack Machine

It appears, at least for now, the far right-wing and factless-based Conservapedia may be the next interweb victim. When attempting to visit their revisionist website (Dr Matt: I tried for over an hour), visitors are greeted with a "The connection has timed out" message. Is Conservapedia the next victim of a fact-based world??? Developing......

As a reminder, here are the Top ten most viewed pages on Wikipedia vs Conservapedia:

Update (5/19, 6:08 ET): Conservapedia is still down and out.
