Betsy's Page was erased, then the URL was stolen

I've visited the excellent Betsy's Page many times, and was shocked to discover that on Tuesday, it appeared to have been deleted. Then, Michelle Malkin explained what had happened: as Betsy Newmark explained to her in an e-mail, it was lost, and the next thing she knew, someone else had hijacked the URL.

I have no idea what went on the wake of the theft of the URL, but hopefully, enough controversy was caused that, as a result, Blogger seems to have responded by taking the URL offline until it can all be repaired. (when I try to access it just now, all I find is a "403 forbidden" message.)

Until everything's back in order, and I certainly hope it'll all be repaired, Duane at The Forest for the Trees has retrieved some of the data from Google's cache and put it on an alternate URL.

Others concerned about Betsy's misfortune include Flagrant Harbor, Musing Minds, AaronsCC, Sensible Mom, The Florida Masochist, Ed Driscoll, AbuseBlog.Org, A Certain Slant of Light, A Tic in the Mind's Eye, Tech Land of Ozz, Political Humor.

Update: it looks like Betsy's found some good luck: her blog is back! And now, I'm gonna do something I hadn't thought of before: I'm gonna add her URL to my own side list!

It's great to have you back, Betsy. Keep up the good blog.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
