Is there anything that can be done
« on: January 08, 2012, 01:24:43 AM »
This old site for the Cobia has guest books compromised that redirect to a porn site rather than the guest books.  I know geocities is kaput but there surely has to be someway to remove those links .  Just really disrespectful and I'm sure a lot of old geocities sites were hijacked when they closed shop.

Nothing can be done by anyone except for the owner/creator of that guestbook.  I think I saw an email address on the page. 

It is so so so SOOOO hard to keep things current and keep spammers out, of everything and everything.

Well that's great  :'( I haven't looked at that site in years, it's a really old one. And haven't been in contact with the Knapp family in probably 7 or 8 years at least. I think Harold, the WW II crewmemeber, has passed on. I think Joe is his son. Maybe I can try to contact him. Thanks for finding the glitch!
