Does anyone know what's up with mastodon.cloud? It has apparently been down for several days.
It's quite a large instance, too (55k users). https://web.archive.org/web/20190811221514/https://mastodon.cloud/about/more
@woozle It has since recovered, though without explanation.
@woozle Recovery notice FYI:
@dredmorbius Reading the thread about the outage, I found it interesting what someone said about Japan apparently having a legal system that encourages silence/opacity as a way of avoiding lawsuits.
I'm not sure how that works, but it sounds rather ghastly.
@woozle I left .cloud a long time ago due to the ethereal nature of it actually being there when I wanted to check Mastodon.
