Funniest theory I've heard all day...
brad wants to test his new load balancers. What better way to stress test it then rumors of a buyout, and getting LJ /.ed?

EDIT: evan has more to say...

I strongly doubt it...

LJ gets a huge amount of traffic regularly, serving up hundreds of pages a second during peak times. In fact, /. started using LJs memcache technology to make things easier for THEM.

In a recent thread on one of the maintenance posts he said the /. traffic was hardly a blip. But a good theory :)

I know LJ serves up more dynamic pages than /. on a given day. It would be interesting to see what the ratio is between the two sites as far as load.

And there is the answer, straight from the goat's mouth.
