I noticed that when one clicks the webalizer link on the bottom of the usage stats page it opens https://nc2alawyers.org. What's up with that? Has someone hijacked the webalizer.org domain?

RACER

ps= Same goes for webalizer.com.

Am I the only person who thinks this is kinda odd?

Per the Wikipedia page [1], the last update to the Webalyzer software was over 10 years ago. It appears that both the software and website are abandoned. The domain itself seems to have been snapped up by an SEO spam outfit that is making it redirect to other domains -- this seems to have happened around 2021. [2]

We might be able to change out the template to point to either the Wikipedia page or what appears to be a github repo of the project. [3]

Thanks for the reply. How weird! Domains cost money, even if not much sometimes, but still. If I were Sonic I might be concerned about being associated with these folks, not because of their politics specifically but just because I view the services as apolitical. I wouldn't want to link to ANY source other than Sonic itself with any political ax to grind.
