Evil Bank of America Crippled By People Closing Their Accounts

News

For six days straight, Bank of America's websites have been hammered. Across this struggling nation, people couldn't get online to pay their bills or attempt to balance their shrinking balances. BofA offered no explanation for this, for six long days as its customers tried to access their financial accounts immediately after BofA announced an evil new monthly fee for people to use their own debit card for shopping. So the theory naturally developed that millions of people were rushing to the bank's websites toclose checking accounts -- a good response to the giant, corrupt finance corporation's announcement that working people and middle class people would now get another $5 punch in the mouth every month, just for using their debit cards to buy groceries.


Today, BofA announced that it had figured out the six-day wipeout of its Internet infrastructure: Lots of people were logging onto the website, to close their accounts:

After six days of website woes, Bank of America finally offered an explanation as to why its website has been sporadically unavailable to customers for nearly a week.

The problems stemmed from a combination of technical difficulties and heavier than normal traffic to the bank's website, according to spokesperson Tara Burke.

Looks like the executives made really wise use of the $45 billion ($50 billion, actually) in federal bailout money (plus $118 billion in federal guarantees against future BofA losses) they took from us in 2008 and 2009. [CNN/Independent Voter Network]

Yr Wonkette has been getting quite a few visits from trolls lately, although most of the infestations have been incredibly tiresome and not at all worth discussing here. We're talking, like, not even as good as ol' Turgid Love Muscle Guy. Come to think of it, we haven't seen him in a while; hope he's OK. At least health-wise.

In 2006, Bob Casey Jr., then the Pennsylvania state treasurer, defeated Rick Santorum and took his seat in the US Senate; presumably only after having it steam cleaned. Not that Casey wanted anything much to do with Dan Savage, the columnist who had helpfully made the alternative definition of "Santorum" one of the best demonstrations of the power of trolling for the prior three years. But in '06, Casey's campaign actually declined a donation from Savage; Casey's finance director thanked him, but suggested maybe Savage could give the money to a group working against Santorum so Casey wouldn't get flak for taking the donation. That was back when Dems were happy to talk about civil unions but frightened of gay marriage, and Casey just plain wussed out on the chance to bring a "weeks-long debate about feces, lube, and assfucking" to the Senate race, as then-Wonket Dave Weigel put it. But Bob Casey has come rather a long way since then, and he now supports marriage equality. He might still be a bit shy about a full-on embrace of buttsechs talk, however.
