Thursday night, you may have had some problems accessing my blog. I know because I couldn’t get to it. I couldn’t pull it up and look at it, and I couldn’t pull it up to work on it. Nothing. Nada. According to Dreamhost, my site was being crawled by every creepy web-bot and search-bot out there (including some notorious spiders from China).
I contacted the only guy I knew could help. (John, seriously, thanks dude.) Somehow, and maybe one day he’ll be able to walk me through exactly what he did, he got it back without breaking a sweat. He said that my backup had been causing the issues, so he deleted it explaining that it may have been hacked.
That would figure.

Has anyone had any issues with any of these WordPress plugins? Or are there any plugins that you would recommend that we stay away from?
