Title: Web hosting trouble

I received a message from my web host just now telling me to remove any copyrighted material and warez from my account. I would remove the files as they ask, but I can't use my FTP account right now.

Someone has reported it to your host? Who'd care to do that? :blink:
Maybe she's now so big that there's a dedicated team combing the net for her copyrighted materials? :unsure:

No, I think it's just that webhosts are cracking down and getting rid of any questionable material on their systems in preparation for our government taking over the Internet (or at least controlling the American portion of it).

^ Well, that seems to be happening everywhere nowadays, especially the tightening of net-related legislations & penalties. :(

So... I had to remove over 100GB of stuff. I plan to move to a different hosting company some time in august, but I don't think I'll be able to provide the media downloads I once did.
