in thread Status of Recent User Information Leak

The gods found out about the leak sometime on 07/28/2009. The May 20 date would seem to be the result of forensic sleuthing by the gods/Pair.com. As far as anyone knows, the info was only leaked, by the hackers, as of approximately Jul 28, 2009 at 18:00 CDT (my best guess based on when certain links were posted on certain blogs - I don't feel the need to give any more direct pointers to the hacker 'zine).

HTH,

    It's just the way the original node is worded -- apparently the gods were notified twice, two months apart. I was hoping that Co-Rion just mis-wrote the text and the gods were only notified once, on July 28th.

    Added: Note that I'm not looking for a link, and I agree that the fewer links to it, the better (no reason to make them all happy by giving them extra attention, not an attempt at "security through obscurity").

      The real problem is it's written as if the intent was to include the link to the ezine. Replace the link to the Wikipedia article with a link to the ezine and the sentence makes perfect sense. Well, you would need to follow the link, but after that it would make sense.
