Spoof Attack Took Down Mish Blog Site

Earlier today, Mike "MIsh" Shedlock's web site went dark. It was taken down by Google. He's back up. Mish explains what happened here:
Earlier today, I was subject to a spoof attack on my gmail account. Someone was sending spam advertising emails, pretending to be me. A gmail message limit was hit and the affect was to suspend my gmail account which in turn suspended my blog.

Google is now looking into the sequence of events but my blog is back up.

  1. I think it was Bob Murphy. Mish had just put up a post that eviscerated Murphy's massive-bank-reserves-will-lead-to-inflation argument. The shame must have just pushed him over the edge.

    It's sad when econo-geeks go bad.
