I’ve notified Cole that some of you are getting redirected to one or more porn sites when you attempt to access the site on your phones, tablets, and/or other mobile devices. He’s already gotten back to me, so he’s on it. Commenter Another Scott, thought it might be a WordPress flaw that is being exploited via a plugin, as delineated in this Ars Technica piece. However, I checked with Alain and we don’t have that plugin as adding it when it came out would have broken everything that’s holding the site together.
On behalf of the other front pagers I apologize for the problems, Cole’s working on it, and hopefully this will get remedied quickly. In the meantime, if possible, please access the site from non-mobile devices.

I just heard from Alain, he’s working on the fix right now. He expects everything to be repaired in about 5 minutes.

Alain has indicated that everything should be fixed!
