The best internet responses to last night’s #censusfail

Australians all let us rejoice, For we are young (and snarky AF…)

By Lorna Gray

Remember when the government made a big old song and dance about how much better it’d be for us to fill in our census online?

“It’ll be easy,” they said.

“The website won’t crash,” they said.

Well, we all know now that was a lie if the shitfight that was millions of Aussies frantically trying to access the ABS website last night is anything to go by.

However, The Australian Bureau of Statistics have come out and said that the reason the site crashed was because it was attacked by overseas hackers. Meep.

The ABS's David Kalisch said:

"It was an attack, and we believe from overseas. The online census form was subject to four denial of service attacks yesterday."

So it was shut down as a precaution...

Oh well, do you know what we can always rely on? Our impeccable sense of humour.
