I've received a number of emails from members and have not had the time to reply to any. I'm not ignoring anyone, I'm just very busy. Thanks for everything, from expressions of concern to encouragements to bug and odd behavior reports.
Thanks for reporting this. Yes, I was aware, and I may even have been the cause. Usually tasks I carry out on the server have no impact on website performance, but in this case I was processing a particularly large data file. I'll be more careful when processing large files from now on.
Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I don't seem to be able to use the boards with Firefox any more. I can log in fine, but then am logged out as soon as I click on anything. Is this just me, or a problem caused by the hacking and fixing? It works fine in IE.
I wonder why you would assume that it was a creationist that would want to hack this site. I thought everyone here claims that this is not a Pro-evolution site, and both sides are treated equally?
They are. And the in my experience the only people foolish and paranoid enough to find this even-handed treatment upsetting are creationists.
So while it is true that a creationist has no better reason than an evolutionist to hold a grudge against this board, it is also true that a creationist is much more likely to hold an unreasonable grudge. Unreasonable is pretty much what they do, after all.
