Michael Kordahi’s Delicate Genius blog stolen

M

I’m really feeling for Michael Kordahi at the moment. His Delicate Genius domain has been stolen and his blog is now getting choked up with spam. This is really sad. (I’ve deliberately not linked to it here)

I caught up with him for a few minutes tonight and he was pretty cut up about it. At this stage it looks like a complete stuff up by his domain registrar, and he’s been trying everything to get it sorted. Hopefully he can get the domain returned to him asap.

I asked him if it was OK for me to blog about this and let people know and he was keen to get the message out. He’s had tons of people emailing him, phoning him and asking him in person – which is both depressing (having to be reminded again and again about the issue) but also comforting (knowing so many people care).

If you have any experience with restoring hijacked accounts or working with terrible domain registrars then please him (or me) know.

Otherwise, you might just want to send him an email (assuming you know his address) saying you miss his blog but are aware of the reasons why.

  • Oh heck, I hope that wasn’t me that initiated that Spam. I posted on Jodie’s blog re a link to Michaels site. I hope no spammer has piggybacked that somehow to break in. I doubt it as WordPress are fairly Spam proof and it a week previously. It seems shortly after I write something, there is some sort of catastrophe afterwards. I was nearly lynched at work after I sent some advise about the inefficient way a test was being conducted.

    I’m glad he’s back. Seems like Michael could have missed some valuable tech-ed time.
