    Oerth Journal Home Page hacked

    Has anyone tried going to the Oerth Journal home page recently?
    It says it has been hacked by "L0phtiran Iranian Hacker."

    Just tried it myself. You're right. Some little blonde haired kid took it over and is giving everyone "the finger." Shocked

    Personally, I had no idea that Iranians were . . . blonde????? rolleyes

    Someone needs to inform Rick. Don't know how to contact him myself, sorry.

    Edit: Just posted this subject to Greytalk. Someone there should be able to get in touch with Rick about this.

    I think Theocrat actually owns the site. I'm sure he's all over it by now.

    Makes ya wonder, though, doesn't it? Of all the sites the Iranians could hack, why pick that one? As much as I love the Oerth Journal, it's not exactly a national security target. Then again, it's probably some 15-year-old American kid who thinks he's really "sticking it to the man." Sheesh.
