Most of you know copperbadge got hacked, but penknife adds that the comm shoebox_project and user dorkorific have also been hacked. Do not go to those journals.
More information here at penknife's lj.
In non-spambot hacking, because trobadora is like, the queen of finding the scary, and with added batshit, read The Case Against Spiletta (or not as the case actually was) in stop_plagiarism, where you will need to settle down with a drink because this is new vistas of batshit, people. New. Vistas.
I'm going to summarize. Correct me if I'm wrong. No, really. It took a bit to work out.
Spiletta42 was hacked by a RL troll in LJ, email, and AIM in late September. There has been a rash of posting really, really vicious "confession" posts, that led Spinella to be investigated as a plagiarist. There are other usernames involved that are apparently joining communities to post this about her. According to stop_plagiarism and commentors, this is not her. And so on and so forth.
Anyway, read, review, and comm moderators, watch your comms. It looks like they've hit several both using spiletta's accounts and two or three others (can we get a complete list of names and an explanation somewhere please? I'd really like to link to that and not depend on my own reading alone).
Er. Well. That was cheering. Would anyone like to hear something more upbeat, like about the latest stock market drop or something?
That's it. I'm consolidating my crazy tags by the end of the month.
