Seeking Alpha is fighting off a severe denial-of-service attack that began Sunday afternoon. The site is at this point largely functional, but page-load times may be slow, and we have limited ability to post new articles. We apologize for the inconvenience, and will keep you updated. Update at 4:00 p.m.: We are still battling the attack, and page-loads remain inconsistent. But we have regained the ability to post new material, and are beginning to freshen up the site!
