    The Gearslutz site, at least from here in Australia has seemingly been hijacked by porno/adult services site, or at least the front page of some such. I did not go digging.
    Any trouble in the US or Canada?

    Sounds like DNS hijack or similar. Irritating.

    Hijack? Or, perhaps gearslutz.com didn't renew their domain name?

    There is a huge amount of great electronic music formation on that site, including some valuable contacts that many - including me - have made through the messaging board - I hope it can be recovered.

    I wonder whether, if it came to it, the administrators here might set up an electronic music gear subforum?
    Something tells me this might not go away soon.

    or perhaps they're using Google to track smart ads, where the ads displayed are directly linked to what you've been...browsing...otherwise.

    ...food for thought.
