Nope. I Tweeted it, and it was retweeted.  :D

I wish someone was keeping up with this and reporting back.  :)

A while back, I saw that her website was hacked.  Scary that someone was that ticked off... but not exactly surprising.
I also saw that her report has been picked apart and attacked.  The scientist were NOT informed of what brands they were testing.  I understand (lack of a better word) the companies being ticked...but the general public?
There was also something going on with the company that was hosting the test results... she had to take it down at one point?  I missed the details.  Either way, mannnnny people got screen shots and such.  The test results WON'T be going away anytime soon.

Yeah, she's taking a lot of flack.  But the hacking was several years ago, unless it has happened again?

From what little I have kept up with... I wouldn't want to be in her shoes.  However, I am glad she is wearing those shoes!  It isn't easy to "expose" the BS, when it comes to the PFI.  IMHO
Recently... after the test results were posted.  I THINK it was her "off-shoot" website... not the main one. Don't quote me on that though.

Just to put this out there...
Yes, I was pizzed when she "dinged" wet food for moisture content...and ignored so many good/informed vets that attempted to reach her.  (I have been told she changed her grading system a long time ago.)  That doesn't mean that I am not capable of seeing the good things she does or has done.

Well here some of the "attacks" she's citing inside these 2 articles for those that haven't seen them:

http://truthaboutpetfood.com/it-is-not-junk-science/  <--- also where she says the site was hacked right before the release of the report

http://truthaboutpetfood.com/trust/

http://truthaboutpetfood.com/the-pet-food-test-results/ <---might also be considered attacks in the comments


Other hacking news:

from 2012: http://www.waccobb.net/forums/showthread.php?93735-Pet-Food-Activist-s-website-hacked-could-be-the-act-of-gang-stalkers

2013: http://www.waccobb.net/forums/showthread.php?95842-Beware-TRUTH-about-PET-FOOD-com-domain-name-stolen-to-throw-pet-owners-off-track

And that's the only info I can find on any site, other than her own, that's citing any hacking news.

This site cites Truth About Pet Food, but if you've just eaten or about to eat, don't look at it:

http://www.knowthelies.com/node/9989

And that's all I find through 10 pages of search results.
