      Pam’s House Blend should be taken off the shelves.

      @Mike:

      Pams House Blend is one of the best gay blogs out there.

      @seitan-on-a-stick: It’s always been my dream to start a cargo cult.

      Off topic: Seitan– I tried your namesake for the first time the other day (I’m trying this healthy eating meal plan ) and wheat gluten turns out to be surprisingly tasty.

      They *lost* all of their content? If the hosting company wasn’t doing backups then they’re just as much to blame. This is the sad reality of the Interwebs…

      Pam’s is back online. Apparently the data was backed up, but the hackers infested the servers with malware so Soapblox was having trouble getting the servers back up and running.

      Part of the issue was that Soapblox is really just a one-man operation — though a lot of techies are now donating their time getting it on its feet.

      @ Mike, yeah Pam’s is so terrible that it’s been nominated for Webby…

      Does anybody know if the hackers were targeting soapblox because of the content or because of convenience (i.e. a gaping security hole)?
