BTW do you have any news about oink.cx.la ? It is confirmed by at least 2 sides now that they really have the OiNK Userdata and will re-open OiNK on Nov 1 on 3 Servers worldwide.
We were aware of this as well.
It's not entirely clear to us exactly what is going on there. But our sensitive scam-dongs have perked up. We smell a rat.
Go over and check it out yourself oink.cx.la
The original words on the site were:
* Oinkv2 will be launched on November 1!
We are working 247 on OiNK v2, it will be back in the old form as much as possible including the Forums, the Top100 and everything else that made OiNK the #1 Site on the net before Facebook and Demonoid and Google and other than those OiNK v2 will be legal completely just await what we have in store for you.
All donators will receive automatic special supporter vip status for OiNKv2. All donation money is first used to cover server upgrades in sweden. Use ANONYMOUS email (not your eMail that you used on OiNK) and write your passkey to firstname.lastname@example.org we will verify it and send you the url for OiNKv2. If you are one of the team members who we have not yet contacted email us too before Nov 1.
Should OiNK Users be taken to court, the donated funds will be given to them. Else OiNK, TooMuchTime.
Donations will be used only for the best of OiNK and OiNKs Users as before. Donations are always legal you can donate to who you want and we are legal.
We are also in talks with political representitives and journalists to stop the music industry from abusing our police and media that we all pay for with our taxes.
As we have received a lot of email asking us about the older Userdata and Scripts yes we have it all on backup from a third source (not Alan). However we will not give it out but only use it to restore the upload/download ratio, Forum posts Torrent IDs and comments so remember your OiNK login and password you will NOT be able to reset your password with your email as we wiped all email addresses for your security. You must else name the person who invited you to get your old account back but that may take time in the beginning as we expect to get overrun. The OiNKv2 url will be announced here on Nov 1. It is up and running and we are doing final tests with the new team and inviting old users already to beta test.
The OiNKv2 Team is doing everything they can to grant you the best possible experience but we cannot pay everything from our own expenses so please support us if you can even if it`s just 5$ (you will receive the new url before Nov 1!)
LONG LIVE OiNK!
As you can see our help is necessary in this sad time.
100,000 friends came together to share their passion for life and music.
Yet 3 fat record industry bosses cannot accept it cos they must buy new mansions and islands in the carrebean and penthouses for $50 Mio in New York City so they want to soak every $ from you by forcing you to buy music cd`s without being able to listen to them before you buy.
Music CDs for that the artists get only a few cents for every copy sold.
Most money gets to the record industry shareholders and bosses who pay their lavish lifestyle by stealing from the children and young people who just want to enjoy music. It is the modern slavery of today in that people with a lot of money can buy the media and the police and spread fake rumorus and lies with the intention to make more money.
Yet they do not realise that not one single OiNK user will buy more CDs now. Most likely less. Not one person in the world will go to ITunes or to a CD Store when a Music Download Site is closed because there are still 100 more sites for downloading music and for every site closed ten new open.
You tried to keep black people enslaved. You tried to keep women from voting. You have failed then and you fail now by trying to keep people from free mp3s. Because people today realise they pay $15 for a record and the Artist gets only $0,20 the other $14,80 go to the store and to the rich. Like Kings kept 100s of familys around their castle starving and low you hord all MP3s from the people who just want to have a good time and you only dig your own grave because you cannot stop this wave that will crush you. You will soon die. Wake.
Total Donations 1938 €
First of all if I remember correctly there was no Top 100 on OiNK, Top 50 was the max. But that is not an important point. Could just be an honest mistake.
They're asking for your passkey, donations, they claim to speak with political reps?
On second thought this reeks of complete bullshit.
It's just another opportunist website similar to this one. The only difference is we're not asking for your money. Unless you want to send it?
The rant that is now deleted is just so devoid of any valid points that we have no idea where to begin.
Record labels aren't steeling form music buyers. Well maybe the RIAA is via bullshit lawsuits. But I don't recall getting any money taken out of my wallet that one time I was in an elevator with the drummer from The Strokes. I think he just copped a feel.
