A Brief Update Regarding Technical Problems

Friends,

Just a quick note this evening.  Some of the our most recent posts have disappeared through no fault of the authors.  Our site has been hacked, and we are working furiously to correct it.  One of the attempted solutions was to reset our files to a previous date…which doesn’t appear to have worked, taking us back to the drawing board.

One of the byproducts of this nefarious action is that all our user accounts have been deleted…which means I have taken this opportunity to turn off registration for commenting.

Our goal for 2010 was to do a full redesign and rebranding of Mere-O, and these latest difficulties have only increased the push to complete that.  We’ll try to keep the problems to a minimum in the meantime, but be aware that if you have problems using the site, that could be to blame.

Thanks for reading, as always.

Matt

Addendum:  I forgot to mention that comments posted in the last 5 days were also deleted.  That pains me, but was in this case unavoidable.  We hope that will not prevent you from commenting again in the future.
