It could have been some of those Parkour enthusiasts who we managed to piss off in some forum discussions a few months back who did it?

Yes. Many thanks indeed.

While it was down I decided to hang around the Australian Parkour Association Forums.

Scary stuff! Unfortunately they sniffed me out as a spy and now I'm in hiding.

Should have registered under a different login name than "leaping wallwombat". Think that certifi dude started to jerry that it was me.

So I'm on the lamb, waiting for some anonymous cartwheeling, parkour-packin assassins to come springing out of the shadows, like track-suit wearing, sneaker-clad ninjas.

I wish I'd pissed off the Country Women's Association instead. I can run faster than them.

Be careful, members of the Country Women's Assocation might be the kind of ladys who have gun licenses.

Yep, good effort Mike. Sorry to hear you had to waste a big chunk of your weekend dealing with the problem.
