I just took my blogroll off of the sidebar to the left because it was causing chaos with my layout under Mozilla. It also seems my blogroll has been changed so that all of my original entries have been replaced with 107 entries pointing to “Laura’s Blog” which I’ve never been to at a URL I don’t recognize. Anyone else have this happen to them? Or am I just special?
Update: Just stopped by the blog in question and it looks like I’m not the only one this has happened to. According to the blog itself it’s not the result of any action on their part and the woman who owns that blog is taking quite a bit of grief from people angry over what’s happened. Her husband is threatening to send abuse complaints to people who are sending Laura nasty emails and comments so it sounds like things are a bit touchy. If this has happened to you hold off on sending any nasty-grams until the folks at Blogrolling manage to work out what has happened and why.
Personally, this is another reason for me to dump blogrolling in favor of a different solution. Anyone know of any decent scripts that do more or less the same thing without relying on an outside server?
Updated update: According to Jason at Blogrolling it appears they were, indeed, the victim of a rather nasty hack. He’s restored the blogrolls from an off-site backup and is looking into what happened. He has about 3,000 emails to dig through so give him some time to investigate before sending him any more.
