This is the second time this year, the Forum has been attacked like that. Any idea why HG is being singled out; I've never seen anything like it anywhere else.
A little more communication would be really nice!
I wasn't aware they had a FB page so logically I went to the main web site https://www.helpfulgardener.com/ to try and contact the admins there.
I DID find a link that said "Contact",... but all it did was take you to a page that told you to go to the Gardner's Forum (which was what was down in the first place). SO that did no good.
I FINALLY looked them up on twitter, sending a message THAT way, and just HOPED that someone might see it.
Glad it's back up, but may ought to be a little consideration given to a "contact us" link (via email) put somewhere on the main web site in case this happens again. (just my 2 cents)
