I spoke with signal15, there was a hardware failure on the server and he fixed it within a couple of hours of being notified. Can't ask for much better than that for a free resource right? I doubt that Disco ad is even paying the hosting bill.

Just an observation, but the site does not seem to be maintained. There is always a good bit of spam posts that stay on the site for weeks. It really would turn off anyone wanting to visit the site.  Does the site need moderators willing to take the time to keep the site clear of spammers?

One of the big problems Juniper faces in general (compared to cisco) is the lack of good knowledge resources. Could we see more of a group effort for maintaining the site ?

I think spreading the moderation/admin tasks around might not be a bad idea.

signal15 is the site owner if you want to contact him for thoughts on the idea. 

Juniper's official forum is http://forums.juniper.net and has a similar model (but spread amongst Juniper employees vs customers)
