This post will stay at the top of the page today as we sort out the hacker issues. New posts will be below this one.

Sorry for the problems last night that caused the Bilerico sites to go offline for a few hours last night. I guess you know you've become popular when hackers start targeting your site, eh? *sigh*

I'll extend the GLAAD Media Awards contest until noon tomorrow to give folks extra time to enter the drawing.

Again, sorry for the hassle.

UPDATE 11:15am: Things could get hairy and we could go down again. We're up against a major hacker/denial of service attack. I'll update as I can. Posting will be sporadic today because of this.

Bil, thank you for keeping us informed. Its terrible that this site is under attack. What can be done to hold the attackers accountable?

Not a thing, Dale. They're from out of the country.

I wonder if it's Angelina Jolie?

Probably part of that worm attack thing, where they are trying to take over sites to spread the worm..that is coming from eastern europe.

Our attackers are from Eastern Europe, but we're often under attack by skinheads from Germany. :(
