The day the Life on Mars story was refuted. There was a link back to here from Fark.com that hit this place like a ton of bricks.

Yeah. Just having your site mentioned on The Screensavers is enough to have it shut down. I host the web site for the Prince George branch of the Royal Astronomical Society. About a month before Mars opposition they put up some info about it titiled "Mars is Coming". Some idiot woo-woo site linked to it and my monthly upload went from 2.5 gigs to 10 gigs overnight.
