Categories of Solo Beatles re-arranged - site hacked

Postby Mike » Sat Sep 02, 2006 10:17 am

Friday afternoon I re-organized the solo Beatles sections within The Beatles oBLOGdi-oBLOGda Forums and put John, George and Ringo into their own forums. This seems more appropriate.

At about 5pm I checked out the site, macca-central.com and discovered that the site was hacked into and replaced with an very anti-Jewish site. I will not go into the details but it called for the destruction of Israel. Upon discovery of this I immediately took it down and worked for the next several hours rebuilding MACCA-Central. If I ever catch the ***censored*** who did this . . . well you ge the picture. I first suspect a virus on my computer and someone got in through a backdoor but my computer is clean. The hosting company is doing a trace and will take the appropriate action.

This of course is no coincidence and is directly related to the political discussions I recently closed down on this site. Someone who we thought was a friend, a Beatle/McCartney friend has turned their political hatred towards all of us. It's a shame. I hope this person does not target my family. Yes, we are very worried. All I can say is remember what brought you here in the first place, the love of music.

yeah, i think i can speak on behalf of all of us when i say sorry you have to go through any unneccessary bullsh*t. if there is anything i can do to help, please...don't hesitate to ask. sincerely.

and i hope you can trace back to find out who he is. if you do, i want to ask you to let us know who did it. i'm not ordinarily in favor of "outing" someone, but if this person is doing something hateful to someone we consider friends, than we should know who the coward is.

Mike, you know you have my support as well. Cowardice is the right word for it. Thanks for all you've done to promote Macca's beautiful music that brings us all together.
And in the end...

A dispicable act, for sure. Be well and safe big Mike.

Well, I'm glad everything is back to normal. Some people are just plain weird, I really don't understand why they do things like this.

Keep up the good work Mike

Really sorry and upset by this! Everyone has stated my thoughts and feelings on this well. I noticed something was amiss when a number of replies to the Space Within DVD thread vanished.
Once again, a terrible turn of events! :twisted:

Well- as someone who encouraged political discussion please don't blame the politics on the act of one ***censored***. There are TONS of political sites out there that are far more controversial than anything we say around here (myleftwing.com, dailykos.com, etc.)

As I said previously- get rid of the politics and youre still left w/whatever maturity level you have.
