The Death of Another Blog?

Danger Democrat died a few months ago only to be resurrected as Jefferson Democrat.
 I went to visit Positively Alex Bay Blog and got this message:

Blog has been removed

Sorry, the blog at has been removed. This address is not available for new blogs.
Did you expect to see your blog here? See: 'I can't find my blog on the Web, where is it?'
Is it a glitch in or worse?

Now, Jim you know that I sent you an e-mail telling you that some idiot hacked into and completely destroyed the site. Hours and hours of work went into that blog as you very well know. We do have the authorities investigating it as it is "illegal" to hack into and destroy someone else's blog. As to putting it back up, Steve says that he does not have the time right now as he is working with some deadlines for some of the magazines he writes for. AND, apparently someone was so upset or offended by what we wrote that they felt it necessary to destroy it. What we find amazing is that your site wasn't touched nor was You would think that if someone didn't like abay, they would take down all the sites...not just one promoting nice things about the village and town. Oh well, I only hope that your site is not hacked into nor Dotsters. I will keep you posted as we are kept up to date on the identity of the hacker.

We would like to thank everyone who called, who has stopped in and who has e-mailed us with positive comments and information for the blog. Please continue to promote Alexandria Bay in a positive light and good things will happen.

Jean and Steve

Sorry Jean that I did not respond to your email. We got a new computer and our email contacts have not been updated so yours went to my junk folder. I discovered your email on sunday and by then I was sick as a dog and have been for several days. Otherwise I would have responded to your email more quickly. There are idiots everywhere! Hope you get up and running soon.

As a side note:
I just went to the blogger tools and exported a copy of this blog as a backup. I have not tried to import it back but hope it works if ever I need it.
