PostSubject: Hacked and Rebuilding   January 30th 2010, 1:02 am

We've recently been attacked by a very mean person. Our Photo Bucket and Media Fire
accounts were compromised. Our Photos were Replaced with Pornographic
Images and Our Downloads Were Deleted.


To Anyone Who May Have Been Exposed to that Filth - I Apologize from the Bottom of My Heart.
We are in the Process of Rebuilding. You'll notice a Lot of Missing Pictures, but Rest Assured
in Time - We'll fix Everything Up and Have our Hundreds of Downloads
Available Again.


I Would like to Personally Thank All of My
Friends, Forum Members and Members of the Sim's Community who've come
to my Aid and Support During this Very Trying Time.


I Will Never Understand Cruelty and the Destruction of Something that doesn't
belong to You. The People that have Come to My Aid and Supported Me
are a Huge Reason I've Chosen to Rebuild.


Any Loser Can Destroy Something - I Choose To Build, Create, Love, Nurture and Share.

I Still Believe There Are More Good People than Bad, and that Good Prevails Over Evil.

To My Forum Members, Thank You So Much for Your Patience During This Time.

To the Sims Community - Thank You All Who've Offered Me Help in Rebuilding
Basic. You Warmed My Heart and I Will Never Forget it.


To My Friends Elle, Em, Ari, Ed, Ulli, Andy, Russ, Tami, Petra - and Anyone I
May Have Forgotten - Thank You for the Kind Words, Offer of Help and Encouragement - it's Priceless.


Last but Not Least - Sugah. You Have Been My Rock. I Never Would Have
Made it through that First Night Without You. Much Love to You My Friend.

Hunter

Well said, my dear lady, well said.
You know my heart goes out to you, as I can empathyze 100%.
This is malicious, despicable, juvenile behavior, to say the least.

I agree with our Emily ... Great philosophy and very admirable ... but why am I not surprised, coming from you?

The feelings are mutual, as you are well aware, my precious friend. Crush

I am sorry for what you are having to deal with now, but am so glad and grateful you are still with us and intend on being around for a long time to come.

Hey Everybody -

Thanks for your support and well wishes.

I have to apologize for not being around. Coming here right now kind
of feels like returning to the scene of the crime I guess - and I'm
trying to get over those feelings.

I want so bad to restore Basic to what it was, but I'm realizing all of the work involved and I must say I'm overwhelmed. I know in time I'll get my Mojo back and begin work in earnest, but until then I do hope you'll all bare with me.

I wish everyone a fantastic week. Thank you again for your support.

You know I can empathyze with everything you've just said, my friend.

It does feel overwhelming, knowing what is in store for us during the repairing/rebuilding process.
I am pacing myself, so as not to get too terribly bogged down by the task at hand. You know?

I understand what you are going through, believe me. No apologies needed!
We've been through a lot. I'm sure our good members understand the plethora of emotions we've endured of late.
It takes time to recover, not only what we've lost in our forums, but emotionally and mentally as well.

I have no doubt you will return to us stronger and better than ever when the time is right.
Until then, I remain here for you, dear lady. Hang in there. You are most definitely missed, when away. Kiss

Thanks Sugah.

I wish I had the optimism you have. I looked at all of my creations and realized how daunting the task of re-posting them all will be. I am in a constant fight with myself about what to do.

I know I won't give up and quit, but that side of me has been rearing her head and my positive side has to kick her butt. The thing is, the fight between the two sides physically is exhausting me. I work on things to repost, then I just feel overwhelmed and go lay on the couch.

I'm hoping that it's partly because I've been battling a bout with my illness and that when it's over - I'll get right back in the swing and kick some butt.

Thanks again for the support everyone.

You just need some time, that's all, Hunter.
You know you'll be back better and stronger than ever, but you've been struck quite the blow.

The most important thing is that you take good care of yourself during this challenging, difficult time.
The extra stress over the mess you must clean up here is NOT helping your health issues.
You know that.

So, if you need to go lie down on the couch, smooch on your fella, play some chess with him in your skivvies or whatever helps you to feel better...
Do it!
This whole ordeal has been a freakin' bear to deal with. Took the wind right out of our sails and knocked the breath out of us.
But we'll recover...no matter how long it takes...we'll get there. I believe that.

Once I am finally done repairing image/download links at Sugah's, I would be happy to lend a hand here, if you'd like.
I do know how phenomenally overwhelming the clean up is and will do what I can for you, my friend.

Hang in there. And remember, you have some close friends who care greatly for you here.
I, for one, am not going anywhere, m'lady.

Kiss

Hunter, I came across news of your site while wandering around Blackpearlsims. And even though you are in the process of rebuilding it and downloads aren't up yet, I wanted to sign up immediately, if only to show my appreciation for your spunk and positivity!
Ubi spiritus est cantus est!!!!
Good Luck!!

Thank you so much.

I've said it many times, but it's true - it's the kindness of the community that has inspired me to continue on.

CrazyTulip of BPS has donated a lovely gift to us to kick Basic back off. It can be found HERE

Thank you again for joining Basic.
