yeah... folks will do that.. The scary ones are the ones you don't find out where there until months later. They go after targets for money, not for "props"

Why would you find it amusing? Someone hacking into a forum and disrupting a business doesn't seem too entertaining to me. If someone did that to your computer I bet you'd find it less than amusing. Maybe it's just because I don't like scumbags. Is sniper hail a friend of yours?

If you have registered there, be cautious. I got 2 quick emails in succession from reelboating this morning, and not a minute later my email was hacked, and an email went out from my gmail account to all my contacts, a spam message. These 2 incidents had to be connected. I contacted gmail and reset my account.

Knowing Wiley, I seriously doubt he skipped any security measures. Had to be pretty advanced to hack into that site. I don't find any humor in it either. JMHO.

nah, if his developer is any good it should only take him an hour to do a restore from a previous backup. Now, if he doesn't have a recent backup he will lose all posts and users since that backup, if he doesn't have a backup at all then hes pulling his hairs out right now.

How did you get that screen shot? Seems to me only someone with extensive knowledge of this hacking thing would be able to get that.

I got an email earlier today from the site, when I tried to go to it that's what was plastered on all the pages. Everyone that tried to visit earlier saw the same thing, cant see it now cause they took the site down. You are mistaken by trying to insinuate I had anything to do with it.

I'm registered over there and didn't get any of the B$ you're claiming.

I find it interesting that in the 6 years you've had your THT ID and with only 40 posts you comment about your problem all of a sudden (supposedly) related to the other site.

just sayin
