MoCo Loco Nightmare!

If you’re tried to visit MoCo Tokyo (or its parent site, MoCo Loco) in the past 24 hours, you probably came up with nothing (and you might have noticed that there are no MoCo Tokyo posts listed in my sidebar). Seems like the hosting company, Hostway, has suspended the account and email for alleged spamming, which is just ridiculous. On top of that, they sent an email about the situation just before shutting the whole thing down to the email address that they were shutting down! It seems that there is nothing that can be done until Monday morning, when the right person will be in the office.

I just feel bad for Harry, MoCo Loco’s editor. His domains and email accounts were probably hijacked by spammers, which is an unfortunate nightmare that could happen to anyone.

Update: The sites seem to be back up now.
