We Were Nuked, But Good

Dear Readers:

Please read: “So long, and thanks for all the fish: An Anglican website opens a window (pun intended).”


Then came the crash. It was bound to happen sooner or later and happen it did. A hacker who has since been traced to an Anglican office took us out for several days.

And again in November 2007, except right down to rock bottom, wiping out (forever) months of data, blog-entries, and information. Deliberate. Destructive. Costly.

In retrospect, it looks like the CaNN servers had been under semi-constant attacks for a long period– whether from the same ‘Anglican office’ or not, we don’t know for sure.

Mark this: this was pure cyber-war (a fine & jail-worthy Federal crime within the U.S., prosecutable by the FBI) directed against CaNN, our hosted blogs, ourselves, our audience, freedom of speech & religion, just to mention a few targets.

Stay tuned for further details.

You’re aware of the Wayback Machine, aren’t you? The archive that stores old versions of popular websites.

It looks like at least some of your content from 2006 and 2007 is available:*/

If You Can’t Beat ’em, Crash ’em

Well, it now comes out that this wasn’t an accident. They were hacked. Twice, on top of what appears to have been a long term effort to knock them down.
