METAL SLUDGE HACKED BY TURKS FOR THIRD TIME
Hair-metal sleaze site MetalSludge has again been hacked. This is the third hack of MetalSludge in the past month, and at least the second which has been perpetrated by Turks; the group 1919turk.org has taken credit, as visible in the above screen cap. According to Wikipedia, the year 1919 is of some significance in Turkish history:
The Greco–Turkish War of 1919–1922, also called the War in Asia Minor, or the Greek campaign of the Turkish War of Independence, was a series of military events occurring during the partitioning of the Ottoman Empire after the World War I between May 1919 and October 1922. The war was fought between Greece and Turkish revolutionaries of the Turkish National Movement that would later establish the Republic of Turkey.
Why the Turks are so angry at MetalSludge or why any one group would dedicate so much time to hacking a relatively unimportant website is a complete mystery. Is MetalSludge editor / Tuff frontman Stevie Rachelle of Greek descent? Did he fuck the Turkish President’s wife? Does this feel like an episode of L O S T?
