    Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are
    you using for this site? I'm getting sick and tired of
    Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform.

    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.

    When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added"
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three
    e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!
