I sent some of you an email although I quickly saw that it would take half of forever to reply to the barage of emails that I received around 3:30 PM today..

To make it short and simple.. it was a domain renewal problem as in... I paid it but it was not showing as paid so when the expiration kicked in it simply reverted to an ad page..

Fortunately, I got ahold of a somewhat competent person and got the issue resolved.

Several folks thought we might have gotten hijacked and I have to admit that I was wondering for a few minutes there if that was the case but lucky for us it was something much easier to resolve.

I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and hopefully we can keep this from happening too often.. I know how you guys are without the forum
Dude I'm really glad I miss that. If I tried to log on and nothing was here I would probably just sit here for hours just looking at the screen. What ever would I do with out my friends?
I darned near fell off my chair! Went to handle a post report and I was being offered cigarettes anf cigars! Quit smoking them on 09/01/1985.

Man was I riled. I really thought that the site had been hijacked also!

Happy to be alive again!
I knew what it had to be and that Jeff would remedy it immediately. My hats off to you Jeff for having the greatest smoking meat forum on the net!
I was scared there myself!
Almost thought I had a virus that was redirecting to another site.
Then I thought maybe Jeff was doing some updating.
I'm just glad everything is alright!
i freaked out too & sent jeff an e-distress call before i clicked on the "why am i seeing this page". great fast job getting it back so quick- i have seen people lose their sites to that & pay big big bucks for the rights to their anyway, there were a couple spam posts under general i believe.ty jeff for getting us all back togetherso quick.
Whew, I think this may be the first time I was ever glad to be at work. I fortunately missed the whole ordeal. Thanks for a quick resolution Jeff.
Hey at least the girl on the ad page wasnt to hateful to look at.I must admit though I was a bit shaken by the whole ordeal,but not to worry SUPER JEFF came to our rescue. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
