Postby Marie » Tue Jun 07, 2011 3:26 am

What happened? Does anyone know how many were lost?

I alerted Michael, but he was out of town. He fixed it this morning. It appears we have posts through sometime Sunday, with Monday posts lost.

Was it really hacked? Why. Then again, left attacks right. Right attacks left. Religious conservatives attack porns. Porn's malwares attack everybody. Then there's the gov. Even neighborhood kids hack. I don't see why anyone would want to do such a thing. This is an unofficial fans corner with no ads.

I've reported 3 separate crashes since yesterday, but by the time Michael gets the note it's up and working again.

I'm assuming the host knows, so how do they manage to keep doing this?

Btw, I don't know that this is necessarily an isolated case. LiveJournal is still digging out from a nasty attack in late April, and they host a lot of liberal groups. Who's next -- KOS? 8-[

This is annoying. It's probably DOS. Who is Michael? One of the resident liberals here?

It's his world, and we just inhabit it. :lol:

Thanks, btw, Michael! PDT_Love_08

Am I the only one who is experiencing multiple crashes of the site? I can get onto every other site, no prob -- but this one only intermittently since yesterday.

If someone else is having the same experience, pls let me know because I'd like to know what possible causes to rule out. Thanks.

Well, that's why I put the question out there -- since we're all trying to get on here at different times. It's just so weird that I don't have trouble pulling up any other sites, just this one off & on. :-k

Your host should have a record of the number of crashes. Could you find out from them if we've crashed again since Monday? It would be helpful to know.

Thanks for your info, Irish. I still can't get on the site using Firefox or freestanding Explorer -- except for SOMETIMES. :-s

DH are scratching our heads over this. What makes it even more puzzling is that, at those times when I'm lucky enough to get on, I'm still signed in!
