"We can now publicly disclose that we have been experiencing a large-scale DDoS attack the last two days, which has been the reason for the site issues most users have been experiencing. The traffic load has been immense, at many times our normal load level, and the attack is still on-going. We are in constant contact with our providers to mitigate the attack as best as possible. We again apologize for the disruption to LiveJournal usage, and are working to get everything back to normal as soon as we can. Thank you!

Для непонимающих английского:
1. Английский - отличный язык, очень рекомендую выучить!
2. Для многих пользователей LiveJournal последние пару дней лежит, потому что пришла очередная DDoS-атака и застала LiveJournal врасплох! "Мы работаем над проблемой. Оставайтесь с нами."
"We just wanted to take a moment and thank everyone for their patience and support. Also, we've seen some concerns from folks about possible data loss. Your entries are still there. An attack like this only disables your access to them. Please know your data hasn't been affected. Our Operations team is working very hard on getting everyone back full access.
