UPDATE, 21:01, 05/01/10: WACCOE is now back online with an explanation outlining the second period of down time here.

Quite easily the most popular Leeds United forum on the net has spent quite a lot of time offline over the past few days, and is offline once again as I write this.

When the site originally went down, the following message was posted from the sites administrators;

Due to legal issues relating to posts made during the early hours of this morning the forum will remain offline until legal advice has been sought, we apologise for the incovenience and assure you we will seek to resolve these issues as soon as it is practical to do so.

To prevent getting myself into any trouble, I’ll not post the reasons I’ve been told WACCOE is offline, but there’s a thread on the Unofficial Leeds United forum offering an explantion.

I’m sure WACCOE will be back online soon enough, although I imagine moderation will have to be increased massively. In the meantime, other Leeds United forums such as Leeds United World and the newly re-established Square Ball are likely benefiting from WACCOE’s monopoly being interupted.
