We won't know unless and until they identify those who did it.
Actually to see the Dems learn from the Republican tactics is quite refreshing.

The admin shows his own stupidity too......

Lots of cleaning up to do. These Obominations are terrorists/al queda and will get what they deserve.
And honestly who cares who did what? Most of the people on these forums are morons in the first place, and that applies to both sides.

OMG the new Obama KKK is here. Screw you racist scumbags. I'm voting for McCain for White Christian America! Enjoy getting raped in federal prison for hacking.

For those in IT, is it possible to do what these people are claiming? How can this stay hacked so long and not possible to get control back? Is this a stunt, as it's gone on far too long for me to think it's real. Anyone?

if the admins have no physical control of the server, sure. the 'hacker' change the admin passwords or better yet, demote all the admins and create a new admin account for himself. they're screwed.

one of the many ways to get it back, is to hire another hacker to hack it back... i don't know how/who is hosting it. so it could be as easy as calling the helpdesk of the hosting company.

this could be another one of the ron paul volunteers doing this... they're computer savvy.

It would seem, though, that someone would have control over the servers (physical) and that a call to them could at least have them pulled offline until this is corrected? Again, for a few hours...sure...but over 24 with no end in sight? I smell "fake"....

At what point do you recognize that both sides are capable of being "at that level"?

When it's a "Repug", it's because "that's how all Repugs are", but when it's a Dem group, it's an isolated incident and not representative of the whole party.

Is this like another cheap shot that Biden made towards McCain? Making fun of McCain ... only to have to come back an apologize about John McCain not being able to fully use a computer due to his war wounds?

It's really quite sad. The same people all up in arms over the racism directed towards Obama routinely take joy in making fun of McCain's inability to do anything above elbow high.

Classy sons of bitches, aren't they ;)

I smell either 4chan tomfoolery or a hoax. Either way some of the stuff on there is pretty funny. Isn't working anymore though. Think it might have been taken down.

I envy him, I wish I couldn't use a computer. Ignorance is bliss.

That's right, because Karl Rove is a Nazi. :roll:
