I certainly hope that this is an April fools joke and that he has hidden all the forums for the day. But according to the single forum and thread at Phil Craven's forum, the SEO Forum was Hacked. Phil said "It wasn't me folks. It was some saddo with nothing better to do. The restoration is on its way but it will take a little time." This morning I got an email from Phil's forum, I thought it was spam, but it read:

We are very sorry for the inconvenience, but because of this we will not be re-opening the site.

I wish Phil all the best in getting everything restored. I know other SEO Forums have had issues with losing data due to crashes and hacks in the past.
