    Maybe they strategically defaulted on their IP address and saw a cheaper place uptown

    5 minute slueth:

    ping mbaa.org and you get 173.233.48.94 as the destination IP. Whois tells us this:

    American Registry for Internet Numbers NET173 (NET-173-0-0-0-0) 173.0.0.0 – 173.255.255.255
    iCore Networks, Inc. ICORE (NET-173-233-48-0-1) 173.233.48.0 – 173.233.63.255
    Mortgage Bankers Association MORTGAGEBANKERSASSOCIATION (NET-173-233-49-0-1) 173.233.49.0 –
    173.233.49.255

    Do a whois query on mbaa.org and get this:

    Mortgage Bankers Association of America MBAA (NET-204-255-124-0-1) 204.255.124.0 –
    204.255.124.255
    MCI Communications Services, Inc. d/b/a Verizon Business UUNETCBLK252 (NET-204-252-0-0-1)
    204.252.0.0 – 204.255.255.255
    American Registry for Internet Numbers NET204 (NET-204-0-0-0-0) 204.0.0.0 – 204.255.255.255

    The IP responds to pings, but it’s a no-go from telnet. What’s this mean? My guess is the site is down for maintenance and the b-team network operations folks neglected to put up a “sorry” page.

    Um. It was BoA Friday and Saturday. (Off and on Saturday but so slow it would log you off while you waited for a page to load.)

  5. MikeG says:

    Because their website management is as stellar as their risk management?

  6. gman says:

    Must be hacking by the “islamosocialist, anti semtic, america hating anti wall street protesters”

  7. gman says:

    should have read “terrorists” not protesters…

  8. louis says:

    Sweet, I bought so many swaps on this outcome. I’m rich.

    The master brewers association of America http://www.mbaa.com seems much better managed site.
    There is a notice “The MBAA website will be down from 5-9pm Central Time US, Wed Oct. 5th for scheduled maintenance.”
    A sign of the times I suppose..

    Thanks for the link to http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/2011/10/wall-street-protest/, BR.

    I’ve noticed before that some posts disappear from the main page and/or never show up on your RSS feed. Kinda odd. Anyway, thanks again.
