I apologise for the slow response from the KOVTR site.
It appears that someone doesn’t like what I am writing.
KOVTR is at the moment the target of some pretty inefficient hacking. The good news is that I am an old hat at being attacked/hacked by disgruntled persons…..
Of course, that might change and the parties whom are paying these hackers might find better hackers, in which case, we might disappear all together.
The attack is focused on the KOVTR mysql server in an attempt to break links and prevent me from posting new stories.
But fear not, we have backups of all the data and a shadow site ready to go at a moments notice.
So I ask you to grin and bear it whilst we try to ignore those that would attempt to interfere with your enjoyment of reading my posts on file sharing and an inept domineering content creation industry that would appear to not understand the Internet at all.
The Internet is about sharing information.
It has scant regard for commercial needs and would appear to repel all hostile boarders who would attempt to use it’s share-all meme for their own global control ambitions.
We will continue with the development of our storyline which is:
The content industry are misrepresenting the facts about file sharing to legislators.
The content industry hire economists who then use anecdotal data rather than empirical file sharing data to prove or disprove their paymasters whims.
These economists, skilled at presenting 1 + 1 = “what would you like it to be today?” reports are not above using incorrect data and carefully constructed grammar to mislead, obfuscate and distract their intended legislative policy makers from the real facts.
The real facts are that Gaming has taken over from music as the home entertainment preference for the majority of the western worlds computer users.
Music, whilst still popular, is being relegated to a secondary level popularity position and it’s major publishers are not astute enough to alter their business models to factor in consumer preferences.
Company’s like Vivendi, Sony and in the past Warners all own/owned major computer game publishers. So this news is not unknown to them. However, it is unknown to our politicians who believe the men that donated millions to their campaign finds are “good guys”.
Think about it dear reader, if someone gave you twenty million dollars for your campaign fund for you to be elected, would you think they were a good guy or a bad guy?
Well the good guys are now ping flooding KOVTR in an attempt to stop you getting to the data.
Which given my anecdotal, disjointed, rotten grammar style of writing bemuses me somewhat.
So today, I shall add another hundred or so feed links and ensure that the mirror sites are upto date.
Normal service will be resumed when they get sick of attempting to censor my content.
In the meanwhile….. I may set-up a newsletter version of the site on P2P and direct email. For those that are unable to get the good goss directly via RSS feed or HTML; please email cgtkinc at gmail period com for inclusion on the list-server for new articles. It’s old technology but uses a different server.
