    What I've Wrote About The Truth Of JohnCow.com Being Hacked

    If you visited JohnCow.com few days ago you’ll notice that there is something weird going on. The Cow is claiming that his blog are being hacked and he wrote an article about database backup. Everything seems so real but later on people realize it’s another great ( or evil ) way to get attention.

    Today when I go to JohnCow.com, the title appear as “This blog is hacked. If We Do Not Receive $100 in 24 hours The Cow Gets Well Done!!!” This is very funny and I think it’s another evil strategy of the cow to get money and draw attention.

    1. C’mon, the hacked image was nicely designed.

    2. The paypal account belongs to cownapper@johncow.com



    3. That blog gonna worth around 9000$ and above. Why begging for $100?

    4. Why don’t just contact the webhost and close down the server rather than letting the hacker (if there really is one) steal readers money.

    5. Brilliant strategy to get links, just go to Google and type “JohnCow hacked”. Everybody is talking and linking to his blog now.

    So is he really got hacked? I think you got the answer already.

    It's just more attention seeking.

    No problem at all. You're new here so that is why I edited it for you . Plus you actually have content in your post which so many people would just say... go read it at my blog and provide a link which would cause the thread to get removed. Anyway, back on topic

    He loves to create attention. He can't get any attention without pulling stupid publicity stunts.
    Love pets? Why not discuss virtual pets?
