Stalked and hacked, really

PP boy Jeremy Sear is really copping it lately: I needle him constantly, as do my commenters; Alene Composta publishes embarrassing emails from both Jeremy and his betrothed; and Andrew Bolt ridicules him.

Even worse, "somebody" – obviously a foaming-at-the-mouth but technically savvy ideological opponent – hacked Jeremy's personal blog over the weekend. Jeremy can perhaps take comfort in the fact that his is not the only Lefty blog hacked over the weekend. It seems to be something of an epidemic of hacking, or maybe not.

Update Excerpt from an email dated 19 March 2011:
Everyone's favourite blogging barrister has a link at his personal blog to Blair/Bolt Watch but the dolt got the address wrong – he has it as rather than
So Jeremy, were you hacked or did you screw up?

Yeah, I don't buy the hacked tripe for a second, simplest position is that a person with too much time on their hands noticed that Jeremy had mistyped the link and took advantage.

From the real Jeza's blog:

"Jeremy | 22 March, 2011 at 9:21 am |
There are some so stupid that they are pretending to believe that
(a) I set up the “parody” to abuse myself;
(b) I then changed the BBWP link here to link to it; and
(c) I then contacted my stalker to let him know about the site attacking myself;
(d) And I then fixed it up and claimed to be hacked, you know, “for the sympathy”.

Yeees. These are some smart people."

WTF? No-one's claiming that. Way not to admit making a mistake in typing your own blog name in.

Even when he is trying to claim that other people are stupid, Jeremy gets it wrong.

He may be a tool but he really isn't the sharpest tool in the toolshed.

If he truly was "hacked", he should contact Wordpress and maybe they can track down the IP address(es) which accessed his admin page.

He's not using the paid service, but the free wordpress-hosted service, so it would have been their servers which would have the records.

He also has a duty under the Terms & Conditions to notify Wordpress in writing of this "hack": "You must immediately notify Automattic of any unauthorized uses of your blog, your account or any other breaches of security." .

Being a top-gun lawyer, he would know better than to willfully and wantonly break the Terms of Service contract he agreed to, right?

No doubt he'll keep his loyal readers informed.

If someone had truly "hacked" his blog, you'd think they would have done more than just change one address in his blogroll.

I have empathy for those whose blogs really do get hacked, because whenever I've seen it done the blog has been severely vandalised, often beyond repair. I wouldn't wish that on anyone, Left or Right, and I'm glad that if (IF) Jeremy's blog really was "hacked", whoever did it didn't do any real damage.

"All's well that ends well."

Actually, my "benefit of the doubt" good will seems to have been a little generous.

If you check the Wayback Machine, you'll see that the link Jeremy claims was just recently changed by an evil stalky rightwing hacker has actually always linked to (which until recently was an unclaimed non-existent blog, a fact someone obviously quite legitimately took advantage of just recently). It's only recently been changed to link to

So I'm calling bullshit on Jeremy and his "poor me I've been hacked by evil rightwing extremist stalkers" claim.

I STILL have the utmost sympathy for anyone, Left or Right, whose blog really IS hacked, as that is just one of those things that needs blanket condemnation from everyone in the Blogosphere.

But I think crying "HACKED!!" when you haven't been, whether it's to get fake sympathy or cover up for one of your own mistakes or whatever, is a pretty shabby thing to do too. What a pathetic little creep. He'll have only himself to blame if people aren't especially eager to empathise with him next time he cries wolf.
