Some of you here may know I represent a non pie site and along with you all I agree the fighting is getting a little out of hand.
The reason for many of pies problems are in there own hands and I have had hundreds of posts complaining of Censorship on vladds site of the more viable winmxgroup solution which I of course support for technical reasons.
As I see the allegations have been placed on this forum I feel its only fair for me to respond to them.
On the 31st of may a change was made in the IP,s of two peer caches as it was noticed during a routine check of the logs that a denial of service attack had been ongoing and this was a simple pre prepared way to avoid those perpetrating the attacks, the plan originally involved rotating the peer cache addresses which would have no affect on the winmx group users but pie users would be affected so this was shelved and a single change was notified in the usual manner of previous change notices, a public posting
http://www.winmxworld.com/forum2/index. ... 425.0.html
This so far would have caused a mere delay in connecting and should have been the time to issue an updated host file, but lets move forward in time two weeks.
Problem 2 arose for the pie team, Rocks peer cache (209) went down and all further pie traffic was diverted to Leps peer cache (82.4, this is a home connection and as can be expected it was soon overwhelmed with traffic.
The release of the new winmxgroup patch was a news aricle here and has proved a major success with those using its new fake blocking features.
Now we come to the cause of the renewed fighting, user who had discovered the new patch and posted on vladds site regarding how well it worked and that it connected instantly found their posts being deleted, depriving others from finding the alternative connection solution.
Users going to the vladd44 rooms where also being mislead regarding the new patch development, many being told horror stories such as it was a trojan, didnt work with routers, damaged windows and many other untrue allegations.
We and I speak on behalf of winmxworld and winmxgroup do not support this type of censorship or action against winmx users who only wish to connect.
We are also unhappy regarding advertisements found on vladds and the mxpie site for pay winmx, we feel this is wrong and this is not the first time we have seen these advertisements there or complained.
For the information of those who may be puzzled by such strange activity and why the stakes are so high regarding this matter, the pie/host file users are the sole source of access for Macrovisions flooders into the WPN,it is next to impossible to upload fake file lists to a primary winmxgroup patch user.
I have very much respect for all the posters here and had not wished for this "internal" matter to spread over into the wider world of p2p, but as it has done I am quiet willing to answer any further questions on this matter to satisfy those who have concerns and wish answers.
