Apologies

I want to apologize for the site being down since Saturday.

Someone hacked into the site and took it offline.

It’s taken until now for me to get back on the site.

Thanks for your patience and supportive messages via facebook and twitter.

  3. Moxie October 12, 2011 at 15:08 #

    Welcome back! Read about your hacker troubles on Twitter, so I knew why the site was down. Mean people suck.

    Greetings from Mumbai… I always read this site although I never comment, my fashion knowledge seems miniscule compared to most people that post here… But I missed the site SO much, kept checking every few hours, so I reckon like most others here, I’m a certifiable fashion addict and a RCFA addict for sure. Happy to have you back in my life…

    • Fashion Critic October 12, 2011 at 14:26 #

      thank you…and for your first comment x

  5. Erini October 12, 2011 at 13:20 #

  8. Aditi October 12, 2011 at 11:06 #

    Glad, so glad you’re back online. I’m not telling anyone how many times a day I’ve tried opening the blog or seeing if other browsers worked *sneakily looking around* Hallelujah!

    • Fashion Critic October 12, 2011 at 11:13 #

      You don’t need to tell me because I was doing the same ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. Zerina October 12, 2011 at 10:40 #

    I was like drug addict, I kept going to your site day by day and nothing happened. I was scared that something happened to you. I love your site, and it’s the best fashion site for me. I’ve realized that, because none of the other sites was a mere substitute for yours.

    I am glad that everything is ok.

    • Fashion Critic October 12, 2011 at 11:13 #

      thank you Zerina.

      Please note I will never leave….even if I’m 9 months pregnant…well I will take a day off ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Ilmie October 12, 2011 at 08:37 #

    I think was a rival fashion blog !! They are jealousy of your great work ! Welcome back ” sister” !!

    • Fashion Critic October 12, 2011 at 10:35 #

      I really hope not because I ain’t going nowhere ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. carmencita October 12, 2011 at 02:14 #

    I almost had a heart attack Ms Catherine when I thought i was blocked on your blog, but what the hell as long as this blog is alive there is still a good reason for me to spend 4 hours shuffling the crap out of armani’s, elie saab’s, chanel’s arse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Fashion Critic October 12, 2011 at 10:37 #

      If you had a heart attack, I died ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. Tania October 12, 2011 at 00:48 #

    I can’t believe someone did that some people of so jealous of other’s success! When I couldn’t log on I thought it was a problem with Talk Talk again because I couldn’t view the site last week, but I check daily, glad your back ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fashion Critic October 12, 2011 at 10:37 #

      Thank Tania. It’s one drama after another, but it isn’t going to stop me ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. Teleholic October 12, 2011 at 00:34 #

    Oh my gosh FC, you won’t believe the loudness of the sigh of relief I made when I checked and the site was back. I’m so sorry you had to go through that. I don’t have a website but I’ve been attacked by viruses on my computer because it’s shared with my entire family and they have no sense about clicking links and it was a terrible month for me especially after losing all my data. I’m really glad the site is back up though, and I hope it didn’t cost you too much to fix or anything. We all missed you and your witty commentary so much!! Never leave us, FC!! <3

    • Fashion Critic October 12, 2011 at 10:38 #

      “you wonโ€™t believe the loudness of the sigh of relief I made when I checked and the site was back” ME TOO x

  17. Hannah October 11, 2011 at 23:34 #

    Poor you, I’m so glad you got it back! I almost didn’t survive the 2 days without it, so I couldn’t even imagine how it was for you. It just is such stupidity and utter disregard for the hard work and effort you have put in (that goes for heatworld, and their wwib polls, too). I hope you are OK and that it will never ever ever happen again, SO glad to see the blog back! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fashion Critic October 12, 2011 at 10:38 #

      I had to distract myself. I saw two Ryan Gosling movies to ease the pain ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. Tamia October 11, 2011 at 23:29 #

    I was so p**sed off when I heard you had been hacked FC. You work so damn hard and some idiots who probably wouldnt know a hard days work if it was slapped in their face try to bring you down. You show ’em how strong you are babe…we all love you and appriciate all the hard work you put into the site to make it such a success…us fans are your army and we will fight these stupid hackers!! x stay positive babe x

    • Fashion Critic October 12, 2011 at 10:39 #

      I will stay positive. Thank you x

      I saw that yesterday. I really like the picture and that is really rare for me.

  20. Andrew October 11, 2011 at 22:54 #

    OH PRAISE THE LORD. I am so glad you are back. The internet is so pointless w/o this blog. I was s bored this weekend without my daily fashion fix! however, I was able to work on college applications ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 23:11 #

      I was able to do my filing…finally ๐Ÿ˜€

  21. Vera October 11, 2011 at 22:48 #

    Thanks God you are back, FC!

    These two days off made me find out how much I appreciate your blog.

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 23:10 #

      Thank u. Nice of you to say

  22. Elaine2 October 11, 2011 at 22:05 #

    I was so relieved when I clicked on your site this morning and something actually appeared on my screen. I was worried about you, too! And, I’ve become quite addicted to this site in the last several months and was going into ‘withdrawal’ over the weekend. WELCOME BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 22:08 #

      Thanks Elaine2. I’m too addicted to leave this site x

  23. Simon October 11, 2011 at 21:53 #

    OMG i though i’d never see RCFA again !!! i was so sad!
    So glad u’re back !

    Hope everything is ok for you now FC !

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 22:05 #

      thank you…yes, everything is fine now xx

  24. Nat October 11, 2011 at 21:37 #

    You don’t have to apologize…on the opposite, thanks for doing everything you could to get the blog back as soon as possible. It must have been tough!

    I’m glad you’re back, I have become quite addicted to this site in the last monthes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 21:48 #

      Thank you

      good to be back ๐Ÿ˜€

      Merci ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. Elaine October 11, 2011 at 21:31 #

    Delighted to have you back – realised I’m addicted when I’m refreshinh 2+ an hour to see if the site is back ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Elaine2 October 11, 2011 at 22:05 #

      Me too, Elaine!

  27. Kaz October 11, 2011 at 21:26 #

    So glad you’re back! I check your site over breakfast and I’ve gotta be honest, the last few mornings’ cereal has been pretty boring!!

    Sorry to hear about the hacker – but in a weird way it’s a compliment, evidently you get good traffic which was appealing for the nutter.

    Welcome back! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 21:50 #

      Thank you.

      Hopefully your cornflakes will go down better now the site is back up ๐Ÿ˜€

  28. GGG October 11, 2011 at 21:05 #

    I cannot have my lunch break without your site! Yesterday felt bizarre without my daily fashion fix.

    But I am so glad you’re back up today. So sorry that happened to you…. ๐Ÿ™

    Must be nice to know you’re so well loved! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 21:20 #

      Yes, it does. So very sweet

  29. Zarine Mohideen October 11, 2011 at 21:03 #

    So glad you are back up! I couldn’t go about my day without my daily dose of FC! We missed you!!

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 21:20 #

      I missed you guys ๐Ÿ˜€ xxxx

  30. Sharon October 11, 2011 at 20:29 #

    Sounds like we’re all glad to be back together. Like so many of the others, I was beginning to be afraid that something had happened to you, FC. The first day I kind of shrugged off, the second I figured was a computer problem; but by the third, I was seriously concerned and looked for you all over the place! (Thought maybe you’d had to change the site name).
    Welcome back, FC!

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 20:37 #

      Thank you.

      I will NEVER leave you ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Check the facebook or twitter, they never go down ๐Ÿ˜‰

  31. Giuseppi Giraffe October 11, 2011 at 20:27 #

    Glad you’re back! I’m sorry to hear about your troubles ๐Ÿ™

  32. sweetjess98 October 11, 2011 at 20:22 #

    i was wondering what was wrong…… i missed the site soooooooooooo much!!!!!!!!!

  33. Amanda October 11, 2011 at 20:17 #

    It made me realize just how addicted I am to your lovely site! I tried a million different ways to view it!

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 20:20 #

      I was surprised how slow the day goes…I have been to the cinema twice in 2 days.

  34. oscaru October 11, 2011 at 20:14 #

    Desde Santiago de Chile…me hizo falta tu blog….es de mis paginas de cabecera…que bueno que pudiste volver…te eche de menos….saludos

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 20:23 #

      gracias xxx

  35. Anissa October 11, 2011 at 20:12 #

    You were definitely missed. I kept reading about different fashions or events and wondering what you would ahve said about it. I’m glad you were able to get it back, as I’ve heard horror stories about hackers wiping sites completely!

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 20:21 #

      Yes, I’ve been dreading this for a while

  36. Nia October 11, 2011 at 19:50 #

    How awful. I’m glad you got it sorted out and glad to have you back. I enjoyed this week’s best dressed – I loved Kirsten’s, but preferred Clemence’s by a nose hair.

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 20:21 #

      thank you x

  37. JacobGH October 11, 2011 at 19:37 #

    OMG I am sooo happy that you are finally back. After the site was down for so long I was getting worried that something happened. I don’t understand why people do things like this. I’m glad that my daily routine is finally back! Keep you head up, FC, you have so many supporters including me.

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 20:21 #

      That’s great to hear. Thank you x

  38. WendyB October 11, 2011 at 19:36 #

    That sucks — this summer, I was under a DNS attack originating in China. So random. Don’t they have bigger fish to fry than me? Like CNN or the CIA or something? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 20:22 #

      Since my attack, about 4 other bloggers have told me they experienced the same thing.

      It’s so random

  39. doc October 11, 2011 at 19:34 #

    Ohhhh, intrigue. You think it was a rival fashion blog? I don’t know about the UK, but in the USA I’m pretty sure the FBI has a cyber crimes division that investigates these things if asked. That’s who is looking into the celebrity cell phone hacks that included Scarlet Johansen, Mila Kunis and others. You should look into prosecuting them or at least exposing them and see what your rights are.

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 19:35 #

      “You think it was a rival fashion blog?” I wouldn’t like to think so, but stranger things have happened.

  40. Nwakaego Maduekwe October 11, 2011 at 19:32 #

    So glad you are back! Your blog is the first site I go to everyday. Was starting to worry. You really should protect yourself from all the nutters out there.

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 19:35 #

      Will be. Can’t go through that again

  41. Hermoine October 11, 2011 at 19:25 #

    I missed you!!! Life just not the same without my FC!

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 19:36 #

      Aww…bless you xxxx

  42. Bรกrbara October 11, 2011 at 19:18 #

    Very happy to see you back here again. Even with all the blogs around I saw myself missing yours a lot!

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 19:36 #

      It was painful reading other blogs whilst I was passing the time.

      I missed mine too much x

  43. suyin October 11, 2011 at 19:15 #

    so glad you’re back! was really starting to have withdrawal symptoms! <3

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 19:17 #

      time that by a million. I was climbing the walls

  44. Juanpyx October 11, 2011 at 19:07 #

    I was worried too, your blog is almost a kind of “routine-to-watch every day” So happy you are back, we will follow you always ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 19:16 #

      thank you xxx

  45. LibertyLondonGirl October 11, 2011 at 19:04 #

    God what a nightmare. I feel for you. Someone did the same to me: in my case, they inserted code into my site which hijacked my Google searches so anyone searching for LLG through Google went to a Polish downloads site. If you have any issues again, I have a great guy who can sort 24/7 for v small payment. LLGxx

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 19:25 #

      thanks for this offer I really need it.

      I will email you.

    It must have been horrible for you – why? It’s senseless. Hope the host/server has put in extra security protocols for you so it doesn’t happen again.

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2011 at 18:53 #

      very horrible.
