Curt, who blogs at the excellent Flopping Aces, dug around at the Democratic Underground to find out what the guests there were saying about the kidnapped reporters. Apparently what they were saying did not reflect well on them, and Michelle Malkin’s site (which is being guest hosted right now), picked up on Curt’s analysis as part of its blogging about the kidnapping.
This Malkin link, which normally would be great, turned out to be a mixed blessing. As Curt writes, “After only about 30 hits from her site my site starting using 56% of the CPU on my shared server at HostGator so they suspended my account. As you may recall this is the same thing that happened to Liebermans site.” Curt has no proof, of course, that DU is involved — it may be mere coincidence — but the timing is certainly interesting.
If this is indeed hacking, and if you have any insights about battling this type of thing, could you let Curt know? His email is floppingacesblog*at*yahoo.com.
