Contrary to what it currently says on the homepage of Teenage Writers, YWO has not, in any capacity, been involved in hacking their site.

We do not know who is responsible for TW's current state, but it was certainly nobody acting on behalf of YWO or any moderator, staff member, or administrator here.

To put it bluntly: this is a pathetic attempt to frame YWO with a crime it did not commit.

Nice try.

Feel free to respond.

The screenshot of this action is below:



I'm sure we all know full well nobody from this site did this, but what we have to remember is not to rise to it. We do not retaliate, we do not cause a scene.

It can't be anyone from YWO, the spelling is terrible.

There's a tiny part of me that wants to laugh. I am so sorry.


Interesting. The maintenance seems to be lighter in some pages.

A message from Lorenzo


Dear Fiona,

Thank you for reaching out with your concern about our site being hacked this morning.

We absolutely do not believe for a moment that YWO www.youngwritersonline.net has anything to do with being attacked.

I received an email message a few days ago with a warning signed with the names of Shaun and Andy but we do not believe such nonsense.

This morning some of our members received a similar email.

This is the work of professional hacker and this sort of attack should be condoned and is in fact a criminal offense.

If the perpetrators intended on pushing us against YWO, they have in fact done the opposite.

The Administrators of YWO are free to reach out to us at anytime.

We are not just a business, we do care about people. I am sure the people behind YWO are great people.

We do not consider YWO or any other community a competitor. Our job is to keep Teenagers safe and teach by example.

I would like to take one moment to clarify our recent Terms and Conditions posted a few days ago. This may also have been responsible for the attack on our DB.

TeenageWriters.com would never steal or profit from any sort of content nor would it claim any of the rights. This is a very complex area of discussion which can't be explained in a simple paragraph. Our new terms and conditions will be posted within 30 days and will clarify much of the negative discussion taking place.

Thank you Fiona once again for reaching out to me.

Keep well,

Lorenzo

Anything signed by Andy is obviously faked. He's not even real.
