                Could you link directly to the article please? It doesn't show up on a search of the mainstreet site.

                      Yes, a little scary, this article is the first I have heard of this type of hack.

                      1. re: ospreycove

                        I wonder if this is what happened to Lois Lerner's computer?

                        1. re: John E.

                          No, it is a known fact that Pres. Nixon's " White House Plumbers" stole it!!!!!

                          1. re: ospreycove

                            I think they're either dead or retired. (Probably not computer hackers either.)

              2. Is anyone still seeing the moderated thread about pasta in the Related module? If so, could you take a screen shot and post here? Thank you!

                  I was seeing the pasta one, but not at the moment. I did, however, just catch this moderated thread in Related: "New poster..."

                  1. re: mcsheridan

                    Thanks mcsheridan, I finally got a glimpse of that myself on the thread proposing a new Canning/Pickling/etc board. We'll take another look.

                      The content on the site is reindexed twice a day, so unfortunately some moderated threads will slip through and show up for a time under Related. We're working to improve this process. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
