The server that once hosted it is unreachable. The DNS records are gone. It looks like the admin removed it altogether. His other sites were also taken down.

For all the dreck and nonsense that cropped up on FFXU it was still a useful site and it is unfortunate that a small group of malcontents was able to bring it down. It figures that when I could really use the community to help with some questions it is gone.

It was in a serious cirle-the-drain mode over the past two months.

The outing bonanza was really driving off regulars and the spam attacks were getting quite annoying.

Would not be surprised if Cary W (the owner) said f**k it and pulled the plug.

Either that or his lack of moderation led to a serious civil suit and order.

I was tole that a user was trying to flood the site with hacking attempts and when that didn't work he showed up at Cary's home and threatened him with violence.

I really hope that that is not true. While I do not know Cary, whatever this was escalated into something far beyond normal interweb name calling as a result of what seemed like a pissing contest between a handful of people. Like it or hate it FFXU was unique and it is unfortunate that there is nothing similar on a hyper-local level (although something like Patch could conceivably fill that void).

Too bad Fairfax Underground is down.

It was a usefull resource; you just have to filter it like all other sources. Did your mother ever ask you "and do you believe everything you hear?"

Hope it comes back.

Does anybody have any alternate messages boards for what's going on in Fairfax County? I haven't found much. There was plenty of good and bad one FFXU and and nothing could truly replace it - regardless of whether or not it should be replaced.

I hope the "relatively good" parts can continue elsewhere. I haven't yet seen anything, so I created a google group to bring the regulars back together. Please join!

I wish I could create and maintain something with anonymity, but I don't have the skills or the time.

I have a feeling the thing that took FFXU down will end up taking that dump of a site DCRTV down as well.

The entire site was pulled down due to hackers attacking it through the site's many vulnerabilities. Not sure if Cary will bring it back or not, but it would be wise not to until those vulnerabilities were addresses. I did notice that a few days ago the arrest/search was up, but its down today.

Up and working better than before. Someone had the site host shut it down but Cary moved it to a new host. Clear your cache if you still can't get to it. The site is still full of losers tho.

Thanks for the info. I am so very happy to see Fairfax Underground back up and running. Now I plan on using this site even more than ever and in the way it is intended -- to share information about our community. I love the idea of this open forum. I don't know Cary but I have a respect for anyone who runs this type of a forum without intimidation. GO FREE SPEECH.

Who cares. The site is overrun by a bunch of mindless slags that forever pan thru the threads, trashing them with senseless rhetoric. Cary Weidemann, its 'founder' plays favorites with whom can or can not post threads or even post anything at all! Then, for example, will block your internet address for basically no reason, yet allow a porn thread remain like 'the mike omeary show' and not block the perverts posting porn on it continuously.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
