Doesn't anyone else find it completely bizarre that, not only many days of posts, but also pms just disappeared.

Is there no explanation yet?

I've heard of other forums have been hacked, and their contents put up online elsewhere. I'm a little worried, because I had professed love to my cat in one, and I would hate for my dog to come upon it by accident.

Gosh, this is most worrisome. :?

That is strange. I have sent some quite inappropriate pm's here and there. Could come back to bite me on the ass! :oops:

I found this online.

http://www.darkreading.com/blog/archive ... sword.html

and another address where some details how to hack in to such a forum as this. I won't post that link.

It is very bizarre. It makes me not want to bother posting here, anymore.

Then again, out of spite, it makes me want to post even more. :twisted:

Until an explanation is given as to why the forum had three and half days wiped out, along with pms, I would suggest that people change their passwords on this site and the email that is attached to it; making sure that the passwords are NOT the same.

Not to be an alarmist, but I think in this case, when we don't know what has happened, that taking some simple precautions would be prudent.

Does anyone has contacted JohnV or Gary?

Maybe they know for sure what the hell is going on.

I have emails in my inbox (outside of aboutbfs.com) that say I have private messages waiting for me, but they're not there...and the message I sent is not in my outbox... so this is happening to everyone? WTF?

Hey, Ed. Yes, I pmed both Gary and John. Gary said he didn't know what was going on, and that John is in charge of the kind of thing we are facing. John has not responded, but I'm hoping he does soon.

Hi All - I am looking into this - I have not yet heard back from the web host (who has proven to be less then reliable, let's leave it at that).

I can no longer get on the site by typing the address. I have to google BFS and go to the cached page and then press index board.

Yeah, someone has hijacked the forum page. I'm sure there are a ton of people who can't get on the board.

A bit freaky; especially given the private nature of some peoples interactions. Oh, I'm not one of them, btw. :lol: I only talk about frilly underwear, and the cocaine shipment I have coming in by boat next week. :cry: Oops!
