Philadelphia Web communities have been abuzz about popular online forum Philadelphia Speaks being down since Friday.
As we tweeted, Wil Reynolds, the former executive director of much beloved Phillyblog and an originator of its replacement, has been on his honeymoon since then. Reynolds has repeatedly declined to speak on record about last July’s sudden shuttering of Phillyblog.
Reynolds just sent word to Technically Philly on what is behind the sudden and days-long “server upgrade” that the site’s splash page currently suggests.
“[It] got hacked,” he wrote, adding “GRRRRRRRR.”
He pledged the forum would return “in a day or two.” Meanwhile, check out the group’s new Facebook page, which reads like a support group for withdrawing addicts.
