It could be the case that David Icke is a captive audience to a third party.
Keep in mind this is a template forum that was designed by this company; https://invisioncommunity.com/
Invision Community are the ones who created the template for this forum. This hack is very very bad business for them. It shows their product is weak and they dont provide support or assistance to their customer in these types of attack.
Also it could be the case that the hack might be an inside job. the hacker knew exactly where to go. So an employee at Invision Community could have done this hack as a means of blackmailing their employer for more money or ransom. Like i said not good for their business.
Whats troubling for me is that the old forum archives have vanished into thin air. there was incredibly important reference material on there that was important to everyone. Now its gone. There were some long term threads on there almost a decade old with amazing tactical info. Now its all gone.
Also to whoever commissoned the hack; you didnt think it through. At one point this forum was a global intelligence resource that had a better understanding of whats going on in the world, than anyone else. You have opened a Pandoras box that isnt going to be closed now. Do you think a childish computer hack is going to stop whats coming?!
Your going to need a mop for that mess deep state.
