It is rather curious that syplanet.com has been down since the troubles/demonstrations in Syria began about a week ago. The site provides links to many Syrian blogs which disseminate news and general commentary from within and outside Syria. The blogs reflect a wide spread of opinions on events in the country and are therefore a good barometer of political and non-political sentiment.
A "cached" link to the site is still operational and visitors can therefore access the long list of Syrian blogs via this link: syplanet.com (cached link)
Is it the sheer weight of traffic or something more sinister that has put it out of action at this time?
