Park Slope Blog Hijacked by Porn Site

This is slightly awkward. It seems that Fucked in Park Slope, a Brooklyn blog that focuses on the quaint and delightful 'hood of its name, has been co-opted by a placeholder for a porn site. We assume whoever did this was attracted more by the "fucked" than by the "park" or the "slope" (or maybe by the slope?).

The Brooklyn Paper reports that "details are sketchy" and that the blog's founder, Erica Reitman, has been unreachable, but it seems like Reitman's lease on the domain name expired and someone else (robot or human) took the opportunity to grab it. Which can happen, apparently.

Some Park Slopers seem pleased with the change: "Actually, the new site is a lot more interesting, and the absence of hyper-annoying smugness is a breath of fresh air," commented one. Ouch.

Anyway, if you disagree, your Fucked in Park Slope needs can still be fulfilled here (SFW!), where Reitman continues to operate her site.

Whether the domain holder will attempt to sell the name back to Reitman for a profit -- or whether Reitman will even take it back after it's been so sullied -- remains to be seen. We've contacted her for comment and will update when we hear back.

In the meantime: What will the Park Slope parents say?
