Pam. Hacked.

by Jeremy Hooper

It is a very sad day here in the queer blogosphere, as one of our community's finest has been taken down by hackers. And worse yet -- it's uncertain if she will even be able to restore any of her content!

Images-17The blogger? Our pal Pam Spaulding, whose fantastic Pam's House Blend site is a victim of the Soapblox platform being hacked. Her site is down, and her five years of content in limbo. Joe.My.God has more:

Hackers Take Down Pam's House Blend And Other Liberal Blogs [J.M.G.]

Other friends of G-A-Y, like Radical Russ and BlueJersey.net, were also hit by the attack. Just like that, years of hard work have been taken down by one stroke of web extremism.

We really have no words to offer Pam and the others, and we're sure that most any sentiment would ring hollow in the wake of such cyber devastation. But we do want to offer anything we can do to get these much-needed voices back on the scene.

**UPDATE, 12:20: Wait a minute -- now the sites are all back up!!!!! What's going on!?!

**UPDATE2: Pam fills us in.
