Folks, due to abusive comment spam (there are a lot of bigots that hate us) I have had to switch over to a new commenting system where I can ban IP addresses. Comments are now located beneath the line under each post. Thanks.

Update 2:
We have now enabled comments on this back-up site. As mentioned before, Manish thinks he can migrate the database over by the end of the day tomorrow. We may start posting here in the meantime as soon as this afternoon.
Thanks for your patience.

Update:

Thanks for all the emails of support we have gotten from readers thus far. Especially those of you who offered your legal services, we may be getting in touch with some of you very soon.

In the meantime, a reader has emailed us to let us know that there is now a petition on the web against this cyber-squatting action. We are touched if it is for real although it could be the work of a bitter reader just poking fun at us at our expense.

Dear Sepia Mutiny readers,
Welcome to our TEMPORARY website. It seems that Manish forgot to send in the renewal fee for our domain address because he has been really preoccupied with his upcoming trip to India. Due to this unfortunate fact we have become the victims of cyber-squatters. Some lame-ass junk peddlers put down a deposit on our URL and are using it to sell crap by taking advantage of our web-traffic. We have known about this eventuality for at least a week which is why the number of posts on our site has decreased. We have been spinning our collective wheels trying to figure out how to resolve this situation. As a stop-gap measure I have reserved our name on several blogging platforms (including "Wordpress" which brought you here) so that something similar doesn't happen again while we figure out our next step. We thought we'd be able to work this out but it seems we will have to proceed with legal action against these ass-hats who are demanding a significant payment if we want our URL back. Hopefully we will get our site back within one week, but that is a best-case scenario at this point. Until then we will be posting here. Please bear with us as we attempt to transfer our full database to this TEMPORARY SITE. This should take no more than 48 hours (which is how long it will take our computer expert Manish to get to India and finish the data migration from there).

Please feel free to send hate-mail on our behalf to the people that stole our URL to sell crap.
Thank you.
