What happened to the Forum?
« on: March 20, 2008, 08:50:36 pm »

Earlier this evening (~1900-2100 -6GMT) I could not connect to the forum as the turkey hacker hijacked the url. I was very pleased to see everything intact when I came back about 2215. How can we stop this @!#&^$ or other @!#&^$ from doing this?
(I call it the "turkey" as it broadcasts being Turkish.)

This reminds me of something a rabbi wrote, which I think is wise whatever religion you may have, including no religion at all.

What the rabbi wrote was something like, "It's not what you have that's important, it's what you do with what you have."

The context was intelligence.  Clearly this "hacker" could use his intellect and possibly considerable skill to better use.

True, but it also looks like we're an easy mark for some reason

You're right of course, EFG.  I wonder why that is.

Are you talking about the forum or the main site?...
I never noticed a paypal button on the forum site

There is one still on the website though

For a while there was a Paypal icon close to the "Logout" link above.

Neither do I tbh

I wish I could have the faith to believe there's such a things as 'constructive' things to do with your time. Unfortunately ... I have a memory.

I would say that if, in the future, your memory of what you did makes you happy, it was constructive use of time.
