Important BayW.org CLOSED for Good

BayW.org CLOSED for Good

Quote:
Dear Members,

As of today 22nd of August 2012 BayW has gone offline for both legal reasons and financial.

We are sorry to all involved with the site, no matter what your role was and we would like to take this time to say thank you to everyone who helped make the site what it was.

However, it is not all doom and gloom. We are looking at doing something with the site and considering our options, so please be patient as we look to restore the site in some capacity to keep our online community and family together. But please let me stress, a re-launch of the site would have to fall under strict guidelines to keep the politically correct bigwigs at ease, and to take us from under the legal magnifying glass.

Again, we are sorry it has come to this, but if you still have a interest in what looks like is going to be a new leaf for BayW, please check back regularly for updates.


Well they did make money from their members & the powers that be dont like that. As I have said before, the US always goes after the BIG Boys....

But after just checking around, it appears that maybe their server has been seized, as it is no longer around.
Some that have, or have not, been closed down by the FBI, are reopening, some with different Site Names, but intend to be "Locked Sites", maybe available to VIPs only.

Sign of the times...but please dont worry folks, your and
this site's privacy are protected. If you are concerned, then please use one of the proxies offered in this same section.

We are small but reliable.

I suspect this will go on for a while but I also look for these seizures to end and I'll say why.

The big boys of entertainment, music, movies, broadcast, publications, etc. are all wanting file sharing to come to an end rather than address they way they do business to make it work. It seems it's a combination of too much effort unless you can tell them how to do it because they aren't trying to do so and the other part is, they'll have to sell what they offer cheaper. They don't want to do that for the reasons of corporate over head and the fact they want to pocket those savings rather than pass it on to the customer. So any laws that will help them out with not having to make changes are more than welcome.

That's the pushing force behind all of this. Especially when you consider that much of the underling heads of public offices, just out of sight of being mentioned in public news, are industry insiders. In that aspect, it's not just entertainment. All big business and megacorporations have salted the government offices with their people.

What will cause the draw back is that more and more I am reading of people around the world fed up with it. From the lowest citizen on up. All of this has been a push to protect the income streams. The way is it being done stinks to high heaven and if you read for any period of time the things tried, you realize rather quickly that these IP groups trying to hold the high road of moral right are anything but. Moral has no place in this as it is strickly business and making moral issues out of it hides the real problems they don't want to address.

This business of making trade treaties and laws aren't benefiting the signatories much; it's only benefiting the US mainly. So it's not in the best interests of the rest of the world. Add to this that US dominance over global markets is coming to an end. A few years ago before the major depression set in, the US controlled something like 68% of global demand for products. Since that time it has dropped to something like 40%. With the long term depression on the market from the economy it is not likely to change and get better any time soon. This means the one sole benefit of access to the market isn't worth what it was before. This is why so many countries from Canada to Mexico and many others are having second thoughts about agreeing to any more, following the popular uprising over ACTA.

World pressures will push back soon because they will be seeing it isn't in their best interests. With that comes less inclination to support the actions such as seizing domains and sites. All the US is accomplishing with this is picking the low hanging fruit. Already most people are looking for hosting sites outside the US and China will be just as happy to pick them up for internet business as they were Iran.

Yes the US's actions are affecting many different things around the world, including Schools, Colleges, Churches and so on, this can continue for much longer, espec as many courts around the world are throwing more and more cases out as these stupid cases by the US are overloading their court systems.

Anyway, the US is broke and cant afford to keep this up

These big sites are panicking, but its their own fault, they are all based in the US and our site is not.

As of today, BayW is back as a chat and information sharing site only and does not contain any file sharing information. However, I do see that there is still a request section which does contain filled requests with links...

Quote:
Dear Members,

In the last few years, we have had a spectacular time as a forum: we managed to keep our forum online, despite mounting pressures from the outside; we managed to keep the forum clean, despite the large number of auto-spammers; and in all of this we remained a strong community each time we overcame an obstacle.

Today, we face a new obstacle: opening the morning paper, we read of once great forums, blog communities, torrent sites, that have been raided, their files seized, and their users under scrutiny. We do not want any of it.

Effective as of this letter, we will no longer be a sharing forum. They may be able to use their tyrannical rules and regulations to stomp on us, but they will not end the flame, that is BayW. We will transition from a file-sharing forum into an information-sharing forum.

We will rebuild as a free forum, where conversations of all sorts take place, where freedom of discussion is paramount, and where the BayW community remains together.

If you are for keeping the community together, if you are for the transition, if you are for BayW, donate a few bucks to help with our server and transition costs. We know the times are hard, but remember every dollar counts, and your generosity will go far.

Do not let us become like one of those sites that were broken, and their communities dispersed elsewhere, homeless. It is with great hope, we say this: we will be back online 10th of September, 2012.



Sincerely,

Admin Team
