We are one of the many progressive sites across the country that use Soapblox as a blogging platform. On Monday, they experienced some server problems, which disrupted our site briefly. On Tuesday, hackers hit their site and knocked out several of the big Soapblox-based blogs, including Pam’s House Blend, Blue Hampshire, and Blue Mass Group. Today, the proprietor of Soapblox just posted that he’s going to have to walk away because of hacker problems. This site is currently unaffected, but if we’re out of commission for awhile, you’ll know why. In any case, whether pacified can be coaxed back into action or we’re forced to host our blog on another platform, we plan on sticking around for a long time. In fact, we’ll have posts up later today about the start of the legislative session. Just wanted to keep y’all in the loop.
…There’s a Dkos thread about this right now, if you want to know more about the Soapblox problems.
