OiNK Moderator Paine Speaks!

From http://tehpaine.blogspot.com/

Wednesday, 24 October 2007
Sit down, and shut the fuck up.

Right -- This stops now.

I'm Paine. I used to be a moderator at OiNK.cd, until, as you know, we were shut down by the BPI and IFPI.

Now, there are far, FAR too many rumours flying around, and I wanted to set some shit straight.

1. There is no official OiNK IRC right now.

No. The Dalnet IRC is by no means "official". In fact, the staff are point blank refusing to use dalnet. The complete lack of both SSL and vhosts/cloaking makes it a very poor choice. I, personally, am currently on irc://fucknet.wtf.la in #oink, however no other staff (at the time of writing) are, although I am in contact with them.

2. OiNK will _NOT_ be up today, or tomorrow.

We're not magic. None of the moderators have access to the current code and databases right now -- in fact, neither does OiNK himself, as his stuff was confiscated (remember the crap you saw in the plastic bags on the news?). People purporting to be TMT and/or OiNK are, to be frank, lying their fucking asses off.

3. There is currently _NO_ "save oink" fund.

DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT give ANY money to ANY of these fake funds you are seeing. They are scams. OiNK will not see a penny of this money, and neither will you.

4. OiNK himself is safe and well.

He's fine and out on bail.

5. There is no "official" OiNK forum right now.

While there may not be an official forum, a lot of our ex-users are flocking to http://www.ohax.com/phpBB2/ -- Some of the users on there are actually staff. However there are also people maliciously using that site to link to scam sites and other various filth.

Anyway, I hope that's settled a lot of shit. If you're in doubt I'm who I say I am, then don't believe me. I encourage you all to exercise extreme caution when people are floating around throwing names about left right and center saying these things. The "TMT" on Dalnet was not our TMT. In fact, nobody has been in contact with him, and I expect it will remain that way for a very long time.

yes, keep the blog up, but this mod guy was a prime example of what i hated about oink. they created a wonderfully fabulous resource for music, but they were all pretentious a-holes.

hopefully they get TMT soon too. throw away the key, i'm loving every moment of these guys' downfall. run bitch, run...

the mods may have come off as a-holes but they always looked out for oink before anything else and thats exactly what paine is doing. it's good to get word from staff about whats going on, even if its nothing.

as for tmt, its understandable why he hasn't made contact. maintaining security definitely comes first but i hope he reaches out soon

You little shits hate the mods bc of the strict rules, well you know what Oink (the site not the man) wasn't a democracy, it was a co-op, and if you didn't like how it was ran you shouldn't have stayed, but you all did bc you loved what you were getting out of it so STFU! MODS you guys are fucking awesome and don't listen to these fuckers bitch. Fight the Good Fight, and also I'm pre-law specializing in the music bus. What they did was illegal Oink (the person) he certainly didn't break any laws, bc he was not distributing the music in anyway. Stick it to these greedy bastards, Oink was the Library of Alexandria and now those little shits have burned it to the ground. We must revolt and rise again!

i never saw a problem with the mods. i got warned for a month b/c i tried to upload a transcode. i waited it out, then got my privalidges back. i became a power user quite easily afterward. when people bitch about the moderators or about how hard it was to keep a ratio, they either didnt have the computer knowledge or the motivation to get it to set things up. my setup was sick but it was way overkill. you could do fine without much tech know how, you just needed to be dedicated. i miss this, i miss the selection and quality, but it was something for nothing, so i cant complain. im sad for the people whose job it is to shut down something that so many people enjoyed. it would be like if your job was to demolish public parks. sad story.

I was planning to visit the site today, too, to keep my account active. (For various reasons, I was unable to do any more than visit for the past year.)

Regarding the mods, I knew one of them (before he became a mod) and he seemed like a nice guy. The rules were generally pretty fair and you can't please all of the people all of the time; but OiNK seemed to please some of the people all the time.

Regarding the government "having a case" against OiNK ... He's probably screwed, which is much too bad, really. I do hope he pulls through, though, and that they can't do him too much future harm, at the very least.
