ALERT: WordPress.com Hack

Some years ago, this blog was hosted by WordPress.com, where it was called “Writers Plain & Simple.”. We moved it over to a server run by  Bigscoots, where it is now a subdomain of the Plain & Simple Press website. I was given to understand that eventually a WordPress.com site that was endlessly neglected would be taken down. This, it develops, was mistaken: apparently abandoned WP.com blogs stay online forever as ghost sites.

If you’re subscribing to the site where you’re reading this post, check your RSS feed to be sure it has the correct address. This should NOT end in .wordpress.com.

Be sure to check your RSS feed to be sure you have this current address. WordPress,com was the target of a huge hacking operation, The hackers have been sending out rafts of spam emails to subscribers of WordPress.com feeds.

The Plain & Simple Press blogsite is no longer hosted on WordPress.com. The words “WordPress.com” should not appear in the URL that appears in your RSS feed. If it does, delete the old address in your feed and resubscribe. The correct address for this site is http://www.plainandsimplepress.com.
