Since it was from @Rob and he is our Administrator, I would say that was a pretty good indication, wouldn't you?

Goodonyer Rob, we appreciate all your efforts, and hope your weekend is a little quieter :)

Glad it's back up and running. I saw the page...ugh...disgusting. One of those things that is hard to unsee....yuk!

I did some searching for Linux.org hacked, I found a Reddit site that mentioned the hack, and had some pretty negative, as well as suspicious comments. I saw that Davis name again. Same deal...mentions RIP Terry, CIA hackers, and a bunch of other stuff. They were pretty negative of this site. Also found a link to a twitter account for a Kit. Same thing, mentioned this Davis, and that he passed away in August. They seem to think pretty highly of him. Pardon me, but something doesn't smell right .some of the posters seem pretty happy it happened, IMHO. Wasn't sure if anyone else had seen that.

Gave me the heeby-jeebies and I am pretty tolerant. :)

Admin @Rob has an Announcement here - https://www.linux.org/threads/linux-org-dns-hijack-incident.21073/ - which was commendably open and transparent, IMO.

In that, the OP (original poster here, that's you Eddie) said, in part

I would sure hate for that to happen again to you guys. You guys are pretty much the only ones I can go to for Linux help.
... and I find that wonderfully reassuring, at the same time, humbling. :(:D

Yes, we did see it all, Friend @olds442

All we want to do is share the Love with Linux, and help, and somebody wants to crap on that. I am a Retiree and spend 20 - 30 hrs a week here, and I doubt I am the busiest, just the one with the biggest mouth :D

Go figure

Thanks all, for the vote of support.

I saw it too. It was pretty disgusting. Obviously the perpetrator/s have some fans, and all of them have maturity issues.

It was nothing to do with reddit, the person that did it most likley hates reddit. Cory Dale/ Coraline Ada was doxxed on 23/09/18 https://8ch.net/baphomet/res/128095.html

This was then discussed on both 8chan and 4channel
https://boards.4channel.org/g/thread/68833230
https://8ch.net/tech/res/1005563.html

Please stop spreading misinfomation

My apologies, I did not intend to, nor would I ever, spread misinformation. Was just wondering why it happened. I am only on here to learn about Linux, and nothing more.

@TerryDesu , I left my manners at the door and did not welcome you to linux.org :)

I hope that you will stick around long enough to find that we are not a bad crew?

Enjoy your Linux, all
