Directed to a landing page?

A few hours ago, when I tried to access emaildiscussions.com, I was redirected to a landing page. Does anyone know if this was a technical hitch with EmailDiscussions itself, or was I, perhaps, the victim of a DNS injection attack or something?

I was frightened to death. A couple of hours the site was offline. And now all my digital friends are lost in cyberspace...... Luckily not.
More seriously, what's the backup plan?

There is no backup without the domain owner's co-operation.

This time the problem was a temporary cock-up. Bigger fish got caught up in a similar way in the past....

We are the backup plan, you and me!

Kudos for discovering the problem must go to Berenburger, I just followed up on his tweet on behalf of EMD.
