    I keep getting redirected to the Ben Byer splash, I'm sorry for his passing, but is the website going to remain down?

    Yup, and if you're using the AdBlock Pro plugin, and click on the adblock icon, select block element, and click anywhere on the splash screen, you can choose to block the Ben memorial splash and it will let you access the website normally. Site is definitely not down.

    So sad for Ben...
    If you want to see the page paste
    Code:
    javascript:document.getElementById("ben").remove()
    in the address bar and press enter

    EDIT:
    for security reasons you have to type "javascript" manually

    I got to remove the Ben memorial with uBlock yesterday, but still, I can't scroll in the page, as there's no scroll bar. I tried to edit the html and force a scroll bar, but if I get it to appear it's greyed out and doesn't work.
    Any idea? The same thing happens with the javascript method.

    What does it matter that you can't load the page for a few days? It's not like you guys are going to contribute anything...

    If nobody can access it, then nothing will be added. Just show some respect instead of trying to remove his memorial page.

    Look I respect the guy, I'm sorry for his passing, now respect other people's desire to browse the web. It's not helping anyone to have a Splash blocking the whole page,
    no information is getting shared and it does not help the people in mourning so what's the point? please stop white knighting.



    Install Noscript plugin on Firefox and the webpage works perfectly (Thanks @gamesquest1 for the answer)

    although noscript is the best answer here, would cloning the site through a website copier work? Or would it just copy the additional memorial script alongside it as well?

    That site wouldn't exist without him. Show some respect and wait a couple days. It's not up there to inconvenience you.

    Again I'm sorry for his passing, he was a great guy, great asset to the hacking community, but the full
    splash that blocks access to the website does inconvenience me. I will mourn how I choose to mourn, not how you tell me to.

    Huh? Wait a sec, I've not done anything to unblock the memorial page, but I just went onto wiiubrew now and didn't get the splash. O.o

    That's because it got changed by marcan, it shows this message on top of the page now: "In memory of Ben “bushing” Byer, who passed away on Monday, February 8th."
