Absolute Write UP ... Sort of

After imploding and staying down for nearly two months due to a hostile DDOS attack by a disgruntled former member (we presume correctly?), Absolute Write is now back up--in a manner of speaking. If anyone tries to go to the site, however, freaky scanning of your pc takes place with odd oscillating web pages as the process continues. No one knows what kind of information that the Absolute Write server is sucking out of your computer or how deep they're digging, but it's all in the name of security.

Regardless, one wonders why all that is necessary. Other commercial sites endure DDOS attacks and they're not combing through files on everyone's drive.

Best to remain distant. That's our advice for now.

Even on the best of days, AW forum is crawling with slither.
