Anyone have any info on why Andrew Musgrave's blog has been discontinued? He appears to have disappeared off of Twitter as well.
Just curious...

Looks like the site might have been hacked.

I've wondered this too. I would think if he was hacked he would have gotten the word out by now that that was the case.

If you do a site search on Google there are now hundreds of rogue sites attached to that URL. Has to be hijacked.

The site hasn't been hacked that I know of. But Andrew over a week ago did announce on F.B. that he would be taking an hiatus from the internet within the next month. He also mentioned that he does not know when he could decide to come back.

I believe he's touring in Korea presently. I know that would be enough to make me take a break from the blog!

RS1963: Do a Google site search of sleightly.com. Use this for search terms: site:sleightly.com Take a look at all the subpages that show as results. That's what makes me think it was hacked.

It may have. He did say due to some events that happened he was taking a break. Andrew seems level headed so something happened to make him take it all down.

Thanks for the update. I noticed Andrew's Facebook page was down too. I guess I missed his post about taking a break.

Andrew's F.B. is still up he said two weeks ago that would probably come down in a month or two as well.

Here's a link to the letter Andrew wrote explaining why he's stepped out of the limelight:

Yikes! I don't blame Andrew for going off the grid. It's sad that the world has people such as whoever Lukins is that have to how they don't have any class at all. I know I can have my moments that even leave be scratching my head as to why I went on the way that I have at times. But I wouldn't stoop anywhere close to where the thing that J.L has done. If he continues to do such things I hope Andrew does take legal action.

Just stating facts, he admitted it

Yes, Steven Youell did admit that. He also admitted he is suffering from severe mental illness. That, my friends, is devastating! If you know anything about what he is being treated for, you'll understand. I have seen first hand what that can do to a person.

We don't have a handle on the more severe forms of M.I., and they just keep trying psychotropic drugs, one after the other. We have institutions filled with these people. The cause is not yet knowm, although I suspect environment and heredity may be involved.

God bless Steven Youell. I hope he can somehow get it under control...

I hope so too, so that next time he doesn't create fake account, making up BS about people and then use the most insulting language to declare "open war". There are things one does not do. No matter what condition. The fact that he has come out and admitted an illness that explains his behavior doesn't mean that behavior is okay.

" doesn't mean that behavior is okay."

Neither is kicking someone when they are down. Enough already- I am with Doug on this one...
