    OK so my dad works and worked for many computer companies and use to hack very well. I called him over and he did his thing, trying all the easy portals into the server. We have drawn the conclusion that whoever hacked is very experienced, left no evidence of his hack and HAD the password to the server. Which means he stole it from francis somehow. My father said that he could attack the site with challenging to access portals and could actually change the link that brings you to the "goon" site. But he said that that would take to long and would be difficult. He doesnt hack anymore so I could imagine he was rusty but he did an impressive job. He discovered consumer review site are microsoft sites. My dad worked for microsoft and we were one of the first the have a pc and internet. SO there is no hope until Francis Cebedo gets his hands on the site. I guess i'll hang here. :)

    I have signed up as a member at the new site, "goons." ... They seem like friendly fellows...

    Looks like doublegolf.com might be next according to some of the members there...

    Let's all hope not.

    It sucks what happened to GR but... it is way too well done of a job for who you all were accusing (you all meaning the visiting GR people not the regular ST posters... awww, they know who they are...). He may have some knowledge but this is way beyond the normal hacker stuff. I am not saying he wouldn't do it... just that he couldn't do it...
    Hope you all get your site back up soon...

    Well, let's just say that golfreview.com may have brought it upon themselves by inviting members from doublegolf.com back to cause trouble. Specifically, my dear friends, "Lobsterboy" and "Vcony."

    At least doublegolf.com has now received the implied message that they are so easy to get into, they are almost not worth troubling with... I have been receiving late night phone calls, from doublegolf.com members... They really turned it up a notch, and now they have a preview of what will soon come to them, in a personal way... The troublemakers that is... Goflyers, according to some of the members, you are not included in that bunch. According to my sources, Golfnooch is behind the troubles... I hope this information is wrong...

    According to my sources, if they (DG) continue more trouble against innocent kids, they will be dismantled...

    I don't know. I don't know anything. But the goon.com kids are pretty funloving. I like them.

    I, of course have nothing to do with this... Honest...

    Seems pretty serious.

    But I don't think the mods should come screaming here, these attacks happen to forums everyday, it was just GR unlucky day, hopefully it wont happen again.

    GoFlyers, although I will neither confirm nor deny involvement, do not assume that I do not have the knowledge to perform such a thing. I have lots and lots of resources available to me if I should ever need them.

    Now as for you little Benny. I do not take allegations to illegal activity lightly. Hacking into a website is criminal if you did not know. So if you decide that you want to blame me, we're gonna discuss it in the open, not in a private message. You got that? And if you want to discuss it, do it on your forum, not someone else's.

    You and Al Gore?

    You are aware that the Internet is more than 3 times your age, so using the term "we" makes you statement somewhat naive. I had PC's and the internet back in the very early 80's, even before Microsoft existed. Although I do still have my copy of Windows 1.0 that came with my 3rd PC. That was after the DOD spent about the previous 15 years perfecting the internet for it's own use, just waiting for Al Gore to come along and take all of the credit.
