WordPress Problems, Crashes and Bloggers Cry Foul

Well WordPress.com crashed hard on many of its users today.

I first started noticing the problem around 9:00 this morning and it has been driving me nuts.

I sent off a notice to the wordpress folks and the first reply I got back was this:

Hi there,

Thank you for reporting this. We are working quickly to track down and correct the issue. We will keep you updated as soon as we know more details and you should hear from us shortly.

If there is anything else I can help you with please let me know.

The next message I got stated the following:

We’re experiencing some problems on WordPress.com and we are in read-only mode at the moment. We’re working hard on restoring full service as soon as possible, but you won’t be able to create or make changes to your site currently.,

I was watching some reports on it and here are a few exasperated tweeters:
