    Sorry, but I had to shut it down due to what's happened with Blake.

    Yeah, if I were you, uninstall ChatZilla.

    It's not worth the risk again. Use AIM, MSN, Yahoo, etc to talk to others via chat.

    Yeah, I can understand.

    If (and its only a small chance) I ever bring the IRC back, it is going to be necessary to have a hidden IP address, and members are going to have to PM me to get access.

    It was IRC, they managed to either get his IP or use an IRC exploit.

    Somebody did something (I really don't know how it happened), through the IRC chat, and managed to take over Blake's account and mess with the forums.

    The forums are back to how they were, but Blake's account has been deleted, and he needs to make sure that whatever they used to get to him won't work again.

    That's what I shut down the IRC.
