Extremely worried- would appreciate a rapid reply.
« on: July 16, 2010, 01:22:28 am »
Dear Admin team,

  I am writing to you as I am extremely concerned that my board, previously hosted with your previous service IPB free (http://staffsunifresherschat.ipbfree.com/) has become completely inaccessible without any obvious notice.

Please could you respond ASAP as this is quite an urgent matter as the forum provides a service for university students at a certain university to chat and get to know eachother before moving in.

Thanks very much for your support!

IPBfree has ceased to exist from what I heard. I think it is some kind of legal issue. And they are not able to release any data or information.

I think they had to many Copyright infringement notices from others hosting illeagal content that they were shut down,, but what i cannot understand is why they were told to be hush hush about it? Unless it is so severe that the FBI is involved but i highly doubt that.

I doubt it. There would be no reason not to say anything unless it was some kind of license violation/court order. They took down everything their twitter and facebook too!

Yeah Im gonna go with it was very severe, most likely it was what i mentioned above and IP board came after them with a infringement notice or something along thoses lines because I dont think that IP board would allow them to give people boards with out there permission. Oh well they should have gone with SMF for free  ;D So now that is 2 forum hosts to go in a week or so! :)
