.... where spammers lurk as well

As I said, there's no safe place on the web.  Being that I run a CoCo 
site with no personal information linking to anything critical in 
life, we Lose Nothing in an attack... we restore from a backup, block 
or delete the offending Script Kiddies, and move on... that's the 
only way.  We're SAFE no matter what system the occasional hacker or 
spammer gets lucky with one long boring night for him.  I've fought 
the fight for years and can't quit now, and moving to different 
systems to get away from the cat-mouse game never works.  I'm moving 
to a new system because the old ones were very hard to Grow the site 
with or change content easily.  WP has good security plug-ins.

If the WordPress people themselves were hacked, it was because this 
is what terrorists do, they use every resource possible to bring 
somebody down.  Some of the MAJOR web services recently have also 
bitten a few bullets, and they're supposed to be hacker 
proof.  Hogwash.  A hacker is probably browsing through your MySpace 
or Facebook info right now and you'd never know it.  Those are the 
sites to worry about because our whole life is being advertised along 
with our personal account info.  Google is committing the worst crime 
of the century by knowing every move you make and who you are, and 
we're worried about a spammer getting by with one or two posts a year 
at coco3.com?  I'll keep kicking their butt, don't worry.  :)
