The pool Reaganbook is closed!

ReaganBook is the work of Janet Porter, an Ohio Republican and founder of "pro-life, pro-advocacy" group Faith 2Action, according to The Daily Beast. The site, pitched as "Facebook for patriots," officially opened Tuesday and attracted such personalities as "Ben Ghazi, "Al Zheimers," "Ayn Randy," "Zombie Reagan," and "Ronald Reagan" himself. Users also created group pages for the band Slayer, "Cut Dicks for Christ," and various types of pornographic content, wrote The Daily Beast.

As of Thursday, the site is nothing but a boilerplate message thanking those who (attempted to) participate in the soft launch. "Your participation is helping us build a more secure site. Thank you!" the message reads. "Please be patient while we make the necessary changes to keep the site free from obscenity, pornography, and those intent on the destruction of life, liberty, and the family… As Reagan taught us, trust, but verify." The post is signed "Management." Ayn Randy could not be reached for comment.
