What happened to the Anarchist Writers website?

The whole website appears to be down, in particular including the anarchist FAQ it hosted:

Yeah that is something at least, but unfortunately now if you Google "anarchist FAQ" the top result is an out of date old entry in the Anarchist Library, which is missing large numbers of updates which have been made more recently

Was Andrew Flood involved in running it? He should be easy enough to find. And Anarcho as well, I think.

The URLs being forwarded suggests that someone involved is aware of the issue? I guess it may be a temporary thing? But if not should it be here?

we would love to have the anarchist FAQ here. The problem is, other than PDF/e-book versions, it's just too cumbersome and wouldn't fit in our CMS

Looks like the site is back: https://anarchism.pageabode.com/

Possibly it is a work in progress? Looks like they are moving over to hosted Wordpress.

There is a page indicated for the FAQ but no content. The urls above still forward to archive.org
