Athieist Group Born Again

Pursuant to Monday's post, that MySpace athiests group is back up and running. According to a comment on Charlie Stross's blog, MySpace never deleted it in the first place; rather, it was hacked out of existence by some third party. Anybody have any further info on this? According to the story I linked to before, the group had been hacked in the past but this was a whole different thing. Perhaps said commenter was confusing the two events — or perhaps, as he claims, the original report was "grossly inaccurate".

"Thanks to Myspace for restoring our group." appears on the group's splash page, which doesn't tell me much. I've applied for membership to look further inside, but it's one of those moderated thingies so I have to wait until they get back to me.

It looks like they've been hacked again. The photos up on the page look like they've been taken from an amateur porn site (and slightly modified with text).

Those Christians: always trolling the amateur porn sites. . .

MySpace has extraordinarily poor security. That they were hacked is entirely believable. It is actually less believable to suppose the existence of a popular MySpace group which has not been hacked at least once.
