Re: Press Release? y/n? Yes, it does need a situation room. The reason the admins created a situation room in the first place was because the flood of thousands of new visitors was killing the site. Creating the room funneled the new visitors, who mainly came for the Jett material, directly to it so the server didn't waste resources generating pages of information they weren't interested in. So yes it certainly has something to do with "us," or at least the site, when the site goes down because of thousands of people seeking out information about Jett. Like it or not, "we are the authorities on Scientology," and when a huge news story like this comes out, the major chanology sites are going to get hit hard. Situation Rooms are one of the solutions to the technical problems this creates, and the admins did a great job handling this.
