THE HACKING OF YUCKY'S BLOG and YUCKY'S APOLOGY

I just finished reading Yucky's umpteenth apology for the fake hacking of her blog.

Yucky did not act alone in this matter. I was not only complicit but the driving force in posting about the hacking.

Unlike Yucky, I will not apologize. It was a joke, pure and simple.

To refresh your memory, the hacking post is below.

Since this post seems to still be in the hearts and minds of many, please leave a comment and tell me how you were personally affected by the fake hacking and/or how it affected the lawsuit. I'm all ears.

And please spare me comments saying that you felt deceived, like Heidi deceived you, and felt that you could no longer trust people anymore. Whatever.

THE HACKING POST (January 7/08):


A startling development in the disappearance of a blog post by Yucky and the boys this morning on Kimkins Exhausted...


I have it from an extremely reliable source that the BLOG WAS HACKED !!! Yes, HACKED !!!

I have been unable to contact Yucky and the boys to find out what the rest of their post said. They're probably hunkered down in some duck blind, greasing up their rifles and putting on their hip waders and red plaid jackets. This ain't gonna be pretty when Yucky and the boys find the perp.


Now, what on earth would cause a hacker to go in and remove a single post by Yucky and the boys?




Well, let's take a look at the first part of the hacked post that arrived on my desk this morning via Google Alerts...


"Blowing in the wind



By yustyucky

Why is Amy continuing to promote Kimkins via her board & her youtube videos? How did the chicken lady really find out about Kimkins? Who really told Jeanessa that the fascination thread posters & anti-Kimkins bloggers are endangering ...

The Lighter Side of BadBad - http://yustyucky.wordpress.com "


Now, what words do you think followed "endangering" in Yucky's post? Any idea where Yucky and the boys were going with this post?


If you think you have the answer, or even a wild and/or unsubstantiated speculation, do tell. You can e-mail me at medusa_blog@hotmail.com . I have no idea where Yucky's post was going, and don't I hate not to be "in the know."

Now, if I were the hacker, I'd be very worried. Yucky sent me these photos years ago which I was able to lay my hands on today.

The first photo is Bob's wedding picture, and the others are the rest of Yucky's crew.









When Yucky and the boys get back from their hunt for the perp, I hope to hear from them to clear up this mystery. When I do, I'll let you know.

In the meantime, e-mail me your guesses on the missing words in Yucky's hacked post.

Darn it, Medusa! I did NOT need to see those photos again!

I didn't find the joke funny, that's all!

LOL, OYB! Sorry about posting those pics again. And thanks for your candor :^)

I think it's just one of those 'you had to be there' kind of jokes. If you don't know the back story, the joke doesn't get laughs. I have a sense of humor, but I'm not up on the interpersonal dynamics of this stuff, yet still didn't find it funny. The drama that came out of it was really unfortunate, but that's not why I responded how I did. I was just responding from my perspective because you asked. :)

That fake hacking devastated me for life!
I was a svelte 118 lb gorgeous beauty from Russia, even my sons friends wanted to ravish me! Now I'm so distraught that I've eaten 493 calories instead of 470 and now I weigh 333 lbs. Ruined, I'm ruined because of that fake hacking!
I was rich, rich I tell you and now I've lost all of my money on Capt'n Morgan and Sugar Cookies and I can't even afford the sprinkles all because of that fake hacking!
Oh, pity me you dastardly fiends!

anonymous...ummmm...Heidi.

Would you like me to hook you up with one of the boys from Yucky's crew? They all seem to be up-and-comers and may be able to straighten out your financial woes. Let me know.

I thought the whole thing was funny! Although, those pictures reminded me of someone I saw over at the MCD forum. LOL - But, seriously, what's wrong with a little humor in the grand scheme of things? This Kimkins stuff is UGLY, it's DEPRESSING and SAD - If someone wants to try and make me laugh or giggle for a minute, I'm all for it. It happens to be just what I need, some days, while working on this mess. Life's too short to take EVERYTHING so seriously and to be so politically correct all the time. Hats off to Yucky, for keeping it real and having a sense of humor.

Thanks Medusa, for giving me the opportunity to speak my peace on this issue. It probably wouldn't have gone over very well on the thread.

Medusa said...

Kimkinscam, thanks SO much for your comment.

It did my heart good to read that someone saw the humour in my fake hacking post :^)

And I agree...your comment probably would have gone over like a lead balloon on the thread. lol

Again, many thanks!

Now that I know it's a joke, it really is funny. I think the pics are hilarious! I'm scarred for life! (not!) But as OYB said, if you weren't "in on it", it was not funny, IMO. It was definitely an "insider" kind of thing.

Magicsmom said...

One more thing - one apology is quite enough! There is no need for Yucky to gravel at the feet of people who are pretending to still be offended. Get over it!

MrsMenopausal said...

I agree...YY, one apology is enough.
There are so many in this fight together and we're a huge mix of perspectives, personalities, etc, that there's no way of getting around the fact that you can't make every single person happy. None of us can. Some enjoyed your joke, some didn't. That's life.
You shouldn't be made to feel like you have to keep apologizing.

2BIG4MYSIZE said...

Medusa I'm not saying you need to apologize nor does YY need to do it again just explaining where folk are coming from.

Had I just seen the fake hacking on YY's blog after having YY explain their blog was just for laughs and poking Ducky way back I wouldn't have worried about possible kimmer finding a way to hack a Wp blogs since only that page kept changing and not the rest of the antikimmer stuff one page back, but when the medusa (serious bloggerwith excellent sources) page "confirmed" it was a hack and YY was away well then fear spread through the antikimkins blogger community for those of us not knowing who YY was personally and didn't get the behind the scene email saying it was a joke.

based on the commnets in the FWK topic about the morgan/yy CASA thing any poster who didn't know who to believe in that fiasco had to use their prior knowledge of both and the fake hacking is part of YY's history with the public.

Yucky said...

{{{{Medusa}}} I adore you and your sense of humor! cracking up seeing those photos again!!!! OMG

Thank you, for being a friend, though truly I feel so unworthy (and yes, as soon as I even think of the word "unworthy" I envision Garth and Wayne :)

lmao! Thank whatever gods there be for people with a sense of humor.

and OYB yes you have a sense of humor, I'm not saying you don't. Thank you for speaking up and being honest in your opinions and feelings.

Yucky said...

I'm seriously tempted to apologize for apologizing :)

di-spotz said...

I'm sorry. (Ha, beat you to it!)

Anonymous/Heidi-"Now I'm so distraught that I've eaten 493 calories instead of 470 and now I weigh 333 lbs."

Well, I beat you believe in the starvation mode now, huh?...LOL

Medusa thank you for bringing things back into perspective and those pictures...are they Heidi's Cabana boys?
