Lone Star Times has been taken down temporarily

Just a word of warning to anyone who is trying to bop over to LST for a bit of reading enjoyment. Unbeknownst to David Benzion, there is a security problem with Wordpress which allows anyone with the rights to comment to see the email address and IP of ANY USER. Anyone with level 1 or higher access in Wordpress (or the equivalent in wordpress 2.0) can log into a Wordpress blog's dashboard and SEE the metadata attached to all posts and comments. They can additionally post (but not publish) new posts. This is a security issue, and David was forced to take the site down while he assesses what can be done to alleviate this issue. Don't worry, LST will be back, count on it. I will post an update when we get something figured out.

UPDATE:
I believe a fix has been found Via Matt Bramanti, now if we can just find our web developer, who has been out of pocket all day, in order to implement it, we should be able to get this sorted.

UPDATE II
They're BAAACK.....

Hey Rorschach... this doesn't have anything to do with LST being down, but I was wondering when we can expect to see something from you or Mattzilla concerning the debate after the Algore (all the time) film. I'm looking forward to reading about it from your perspective.

Thanks,
Dude
