This is not how to treat your readers

Site Problems

Don’t do this to your readers. This is why you should test your site before you launch. Take that extra day or two or three and make sure everything, including your links, work and that you’ve remembered to remove dummy copy.

    While it shouldn’t happen, it can. Heck, newsprint editions still suffer from problems and we’re many hundreds of years after the invention of printing presses and moveable type.

    Perhaps the site just had a surge in traffic?

    I am in total agreement. The message could have at least sounded apologetic.
