Dear Hacker,

Screen shot 2013-06-20 at 12.49.51 PMIf I’m to believe the message you posted on my site to replace my regular content, you felt compelled to hack my site and many others in order to get the truth out about what’s going in Syria.

You say the news coming out of Syria is inaccurate.

You say the government is not attacking its people, but instead extremists are killing innocent civilians and using the media to create a false narrative.

You say a lot of things which may or may not be true.

But how does hacking some silly little blog in Texas help your cause? (If, in fact, you are who you say you are?)

I’ll tell you how.

It doesn’t.

If anything, it’s hurt your cause.

Had you simply left a comment explaining your predicament, I may have actually believed you; may have felt compelled to help you.

Instead, you randomly attack sites in attempt to cause as much disruption and anarchy as possible.

So basically, you’re just a punk with a computer frustrating a whole lot of people who have done absolutely nothing to you because you lack the skills to hack those who you say are hurting your cause.

I hope you’ve enjoyed your 15 minutes of fame.

Love,

katdish

P. S. — I HUGE thank you to web host David Allen who has worked tirelessly to get MANY websites up and running again, and doing so with grace and humility even when dealing with some pretty grumpy people. (BTW, if you’re one of those grumpy people, shame on you. It’s not David’s fault this happened.) Anyway, thanks so much David. You’re a class act.

    Amen, sister! Hackers suck, and David rules! (I’m thinking that might need a t-shirt.)

    Yes, sir David always has been helpful, kind, patient, and understanding with me and my hosting issues, even helping me with techno things beyond domains. I’d be happy to open a can of whoop on the GrumpyMeanies.

    Yes, three cheers for David!

    Thank you ladies! It’s when you see things like this it makes all the hours put in worth it. Kathy, this post is one I will put in the file and keep. I enjoy what I do, is it work? Yes, but it allows me to offer people something, my expertise and knowledge to help you the users run your site, work, express yourselves and be able to succeed. The support and thank you’s that have showed up in my inbox have been amazing.

    I truly appreciate each of you.

    I can only imagine how much work David had over the last couple of days. Many thanks for bringing our sites back to life, David!

    David seriously needs cookies. Class act, indeed.
