I was unaware until I went to check for my daily online delivery of the Courier News, which comes via a link sent to my Gmail inbox. That was when I found out that all things Google had been compromised -- including the blogs, Gmail and other Google programs.
Fortunately, Google -- as it likes to say -- 'has an algorithm for this', meaning that it automatically assumes that a blogger with thousands of posts would hardly be likely to pull the plug on everything at once. So, while the blog posts were invisible to readers, they were all being held in a 'sandbox' pending my verification of the account and that I wished NOT to delete anything.
This is the second time this has happened in the past year. I think the target is Google, and not me personally.
There are many hackers from around the world probing and attacking Google constantly with electronically-generated passwords to try and get into accounts and wreak a little havoc. My number just came up.
As for those who wonder if Mayor Sharon or some of her friends could be responsible, my answer is 'Huh!?' You mean the people that don't know the date on which folks need to vote to keep her in office? Not very likely.
'Information technology', or IT, is just another oxymoron to the Robinson-Briggs team.
