Yeah....was on earlie, but then a few people registered at TDUB got a mail saying that Vamp got hit by the DEA...
then that was discredited thru a rapid series of phone calls, and another was sent out, basically saying that they weren't joking around.
Then someone pulls another DDoS attack, and here we are.
This is bullshit.

But yeah, i'll hide here for a bit. :ph34r:

As of today Vampire999 aka Jacob Liff has been arrested by the Drug Enforcement
Administration of the United States.  All server logs have been seized and the
IP addresses will be analized and according action taken against the users.
This investigation is in connection with Shroomery.org.  Please do not login to
either site any further if you would like your information kept private.  PLEASE
TAKE PRECAUTIONs AND STAY AWAY FROM BOTH SITES.

Sincerely,
mndfreeze aka Troy Moniz

My last email was not a joke.  The DEA has seized all our records and has
installed a monitoring program on the server.  This is the same for Shroomery
since Vampire999 is an admin there aswell.  We are wanted because of a few DDOS
attacks we organized against people we hate.  Sorry that we got everyone else
caught up in it.  Please PM Shroomery admins to have your posts/accounts deleted
there.

Thank you,
Troy Moniz

It is a bad joke, yes.
Seems somebody can't cope with Shroomery being online....

>The DEA has seized all our records [...]
>We are wanted because of a few DDOS attacks we organized


Since when is DEA(Drug Enforcement Agency) daeling with DDOS attacks?!


Nice try.

Everything seems to be O.k. again.  :)

Most probably only until the next attack is launched...    :(

I thought they are just doing some upgrades or something. Is it DDoS again?
