"Was The Morningside Post website hacked?" a friend asked me. The site, which I once co-edited, seemed to have died, and returned as a zombie version of itself. About five months ago, my successors at TMP — the student-run news publication at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs — accidentally allowed their site's web domain registration to lapse. A mysterious new owner snapped the site up, cloned its content, and transformed it all into sloppy, spammy garbage.
