View Full Version : Troll on 6/15

On 6/15 I was on TFL and I read a post that said something to this effect "I am a Troll. I am a middle aged man... I log in bulletin board under different names.... It freaked me out.

There was a name and an address in Oregon. I then noticed that all the posts said the same thing. I remember Oatka and some other's posts all saying the same stuff.

Did the TFL get hacked, a virus introduced, or was this part of the problem you addressed in your annoucement?

I could not access TFL for the remainder of the day. Or was this something on my end? Did anyone else see this?

I really enjoy TFL. This a great service you are providing. This incident was very disturbing because I would hate to see this site be compromised for any reason.

Thanks for this great site.

It wasn't a hack.
That happened to be the post I had pulled up from the database at the same time I was working in another window..

When I screwed up the files, that one remained since the file was in use. When I filed it and moved on to correct my othert blunder, all deleted posts referenced that one for about 30 seconds.

Thanks Rich. Sorry for my sorry grammer and syntax. I'm not nearly as eloquent as many who post here.

Again, thanks so much for this site.
