anyone know? Clearly it was someone who doesnt like free speech.

well.... From the Wilderness servers were physically attacked last month 20.Jul.2006 02:39

looking for patterns

it could be just some random hacking jerk or a solitary right wing jerk or an organized group of fascist backed jerks. I see a pattern here... jerks.

but do keep in mind that From the Wilderness' servers and office was attacked last month.

I love this website, I often go there right after I read  http://whatreallyhappened.com and portland indymedia. I'm not surprised they were hacked; they provide a great source for a progressive slant on the news. However, I distinctly remember a time (a few years ago) when they weren't afraid to attack the sham of the "official version" of what happened on 9-11. In other words, they once were much more radial ... they must have made an editorial decision not to alienate more mainstream viewers ... but I wonder if the time hasn't come for them to take up this issue once again.
