Awhile back we had to close the forums on rachicks.com due to repetitive spam attacks. Even now we still receive over 300 spam comments from blogs entries or articles we must delete on a daily basis. I am saddened to announce now we have been hacked by someone that redirected a lot of our inner website links to pharmacy offers they make money off of.
So now we are in the process of reformatting the website to get it back to safe, friendly and easy to navigate system that will hopefully be less vulnerable to future attacks. So just letting you know that:
1. We are aware of the site not working right currently and
2. we hope to have it back up and running correctly over the next few days.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while the two of us work on getting things back to normal. I hope this finds you all well. (((pain-free internet hugs)))
