American Glob, like The Lonely Conservative and so many others, is in a rough patch due to site hackers. The heart goes out to Aliester at AG. Blogging has enough challenges with the technology alone without some Nazgûl wrecking your day with a hack.

Do visit the link above and offer some encouragement to one of the good guys.

    What is it with these anonymous a-holes messing with our blogs? Jerks. I had to switch to Disqus commenting and turn off linkback on Blogger due to the massive amount of linkback spam. Pisses me off.

    Getting hacked really stinks. WP Security Lock is a good resource for WordPress users on site security.

    You ought to read John Ringo’s Council Wars books…..there is an AI controlled bunny that just will not stop that some guy in the twenty-second century created that has a serious hate on for spammers.

    Someone asks one of the ancients what a spammer is….’exactly’ is the response.  Bunny got them all.

    Lee Stranahan has been having problems as well.

    It seems you can get at indvidual posts if you have the exact URL, but you can get to his Home Page.
