    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    After the "Hack of 2004", I believe Brett installed some fairly involved safe guards against this sort of thing. Still, if one sees something out of the way of normal, I'd recommend PMing a mod immediately.

    What's the point of hacking a Van Halen site. Other than to piss us off? Fucking idiots. I remember when this place got hacked.

    I think I know who did it. He recently got banned from there. The guy has always been a whining pussy. One of their top posters too.

    Wolf, from what I gathered, it started as a sort of "virus" perpetuated by some folk with much time on their hands in another country (sorry, I'm uncertain as to where, and I'm not trying to be an isolationalist, I merely can not remember ). It truly muffed things up, but good. These "cyber-hackers" are malicious little twits that enjoy testing out programs that rather than collate and collect info, either tangle up it's use or outright disable it. In a way, it's cyber-terrorism. One could literally hold a website (or company) hostage with the threat of it's use.

    The end result was that many of the records of those registered here were lost in this "purge". Brett literally had to reintroduce things like post count (not that it truly matters) by hand, as the automation was lost. The site lost gads of posts and other information that will never be seen again, and the site pretty much had to be reconstructed.

    By no means to diminish the true human suffering that goes on in real life, yet think of a hurricane wiping out a township, and the folk rebuilding from scratch. Internet-wise, it was like that.

    It also explains why some here may feel somewhat protective of the place.

    Hope that answers, at least to an extent, your questions.

    Yeah, that great hack of 2004 sucked. It'll take more then a little hack to keep the Links down though!
