MetaFilter's been hacked.
some wander by mistake
13 years ago
I spotted a couple of the symptoms checking AskMe earlier but thought nothing of it as the Web's so often patchy from here. Seeing all that js insertion though I think NoScript has prevented any hijacking.
I suppose that MoFi will be inundated with new users now....
I thank Tracicle for removing malicious interference from Mofi threads!
Welcome, new users! :-)
Hey, they took it down completely now. Must be bad. It's been an interesting morning.
What about old users?
Any users? :D We're easy - tho not as easy as the MeFi servers apparently.
Now's the time! On the Register page, put "Membership is again closed. While MonkeyFilter goes through another bout of growing pains, it's time to regroup and reprogram to better handle the crowds." Then if MeFi is down Sunday we can start charging $5.

So does this mean that now, instead of just having the ability to NOT use images, we will also have the ability to NOT post things as well? Woo, go Metafilter! New and improved! (noticing smugly that the Mofi is up and running. Ha.)
Just don't hurt my favorites.
Normally in these circumstances I would just go lay down in my bed and read. But I have teeny little old lady ferrets, and they have taken over my bed. They like to take their share in such a way that I cannot possibly get comfortable around them. So now I can't do that unless I'm willing to evict
sick little old ladies
from the bed just so I can entertain myself in comfort.
Whoo! We're number
! We're number
!! We're number
!!! *stops* *looks around* Crap. Now what am I going to read when I'm done here?
Naughty, naughty monkeys.
I just don't want hackers getting any new ideas. Phooey to them! At least AskMe is up. Meanwhile I've been at the pool for the last two days and missed this excitement. I'm ready for some slightly cooler weather now, though. My metafilter triage is all sorted.
*high-pitched mocking voice*
Meanwhile I've been at the pool...
Meanwhile I'm trying to dig out of four inches of snow, just KNOWING that they won't call off school tomorrow... Hey, maybe MeFi's up again! *types web address* YEAH! Whoops!
*looks around furtively*
Last week they canceled school because of they thought it might get windy. 5 day weekend.
We're staring at a record breaking HOT week here. blech
