First things first - I hate when people write posts apologizing for being gone an extended period of time, and they come back and promise to do better. That's not what this is.
Listropolis was hijacked. Not as bad as MakeUseOf getting hijacked, but still pretty bad. I was able to get the front-end online after about an hour of downtime, but I could not sign in to the backend to explain what was going on.
I think things are back to normal, but now I think I'm going to change the look of the site, so please accept the apology for the past week or so, and the next day or two while I work the new look in.
