Shit Happens, The Forum Edition

Last Friday night, one motherf@#!ing idiot thought it would be a good idea to spam the KUR forums. This asshat took the time to register and went on to post over 170 messages promoting some rancid pornsite. By the time I’d got up and had my first cup of coffee, the damage was done.

I then tried to delete these entries by going straight to the database, as there were just too many to be deleting them via the forum’s admin. In the process, I appear to have also deleted entire threads. Yes: never do anything that drastic on one cup of coffee, and yes: always back up first. Lessons learned.

Anyway, all is not lost, or so I hope. I’ve contacted my webhost with a request to revert the forum’s database to a backed up version from around Friday morning. Until I get a (hopefully positive) response from them, the forum will remain in “Maintenance Mode”. Stay tuned…

  1. Spammers need to be punished. Maybe not a long prison sentence, just a half hour with their new “cellies” in SUPERMAX.
