I’ve been trying for around a week now to vote online in the HKU popvote, which can apparently be done (or was meant to be done) at this website: popvote.hk

However, the site has been down most of the time and when it has been up, I was never able to get past the second page, i.e. where one selects language. I can only assume that this has to do with the ongoing cyber attacks against the the website, so as to prevent people from voting.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Young DAB, Holden Chow, reckons there is no evidence to suggest that Beijing is behind the cyber attacks. Of course, the whole point of cyber attacks is that they are anonymous, but apparently that does not stop people from reciting the obvious.
