Dave, could it be due to the changeover Brad alerted us about some weeks back? I seem to recall him saying that the BB would be down when he switched to a new system.

Yes and no. It got hacked which is why it went down (why someone would want to hack UJ.com I don't understand). It sounds like there is no reason to fix the old board since it was going to be redone anyway. So now we wait for the new board to come online. Which was not yet ready to be implemented.

Now up and running. I just made a post. Brad says it will go away soon, however, to be replaced by the new board.

Probably hacked by PETA. I just read this morning that PETA had run a spoof campaign for Huntsman Condoms and had a spoof television commercial for it. I remember one year at the SHOT Show, a guy who looked like he'd just gotten dressed from the Official Preppy Handbook approached a group of us in the press room and told us he was there to write a book about America's gun culture. We all sort of dispersed without saying anything. I watched as he approached other groups in the press room and the same thing happened again. I didn't see him after that. There's plenty of people or groups who'd hack the UJ board or this one for that matter.

Bad choice of "cover" by the Petaphile visiting the press room, David. He should've shown up in camo, and with a good ole boy accent.

Larry, I wear oxford cloth button down shirts and have tortoise shell reading glasses on a braided leather strap hanging from my neck right now, but this dude was just seriously out of place. Most of the people hanging out in the press room at SHOT know several of the others there and can have a reasonable conversation about guns or hunting without it being forced. This guy was just clueless. Why in the world would you announce to people you were writing a book about America's gun culture? That's like liberal gun-grabber code.

Anyway, I'm way off topic. My point is there are plenty who might hack a gun or hunting site with evil intentions.

David, the unfortunate truth is that sometimes, conservatives who claim to support gun ownership, gun rights and hunting manage to get conned by the Dark Side. Dittoheads who think Rush can do no wrong come up with all kinds of excuses why it was OK for him to do promos for HSUS's anti-dog fighting campaign. And he's a guy who regularly refers to "animal rights wackos".

I can't get past the login screen, which demands that I log in and then loops right back to the same screen, demanding I log in without giving me any place to log in to.
