Poorly done and over clicked?
Rod Page has a post worth reading in which he’s “deliberately critical” of the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL). You should be able to visit the EOL at that link. Only you can’t, as of two days following the release. You see, they weren’t able to handle the 11.5 million hits they received within the first few hours of going live. We’re only left to wonder whether this thing will ever get off the ground.
