Say goodbye

It's with great regret that I deleted News from Davison from the blogroll today. Usually I would keep the link to the archived material and put it in the on hiatus category but unfortunately, Kevin deleted the blog altogether. At least he thought he did. Unfortunately, and this should serve as a warning to everyone who uses Blogger as a platform, some scumbag hacker picked up his lapsed domain and has resurrected it as a some sleazy vehicle for adolescent porn spam.

Hard to say whether it's a just some pimply faced kid with too much time on his hands and no social life or whether it's someone who has a grudge against Kevin. I tend to think it's the latter, only because the hacker went to some trouble to disguise the transition, blogging about some religious sounding stuff and then slipping the juvenile sex references into the text. Kevin was likely to speak of his faith in his posts so it might indicate something personal.

In any event, it's not the first time I've heard of this happening when someone lets a blog lapse. I know of at least one other political blog that suffered the same fate - so bloggers beware.
