NA Chess blog hijacked?

When FIDE Chess in Chicago evolved into the North American Chess Association, a post on their blog pointed readers to the new North American Chess Association blog. During the recent Spring FIDE Invitational tournament, posts on the new blog were frequent. However, if you go to today, you'll find that it is now a spam blog entitled my names is Tyler Wright (WARNING: some of the links are definitely not family friendly).

Did North American Chess abandon its blog voluntarily or have sploggers figured out how to steal existing blogs? Whatever the answer, if you have a link to the NA Chess blog on your site, I recommend removing it.

Update: Sevan confirms the highjacking and reports that the blog can now be found at
