The Dextroverse Under Fire

For those of you that tried to visit the page for the past few days, I apologize because our account was deleted. Not to worry, the dextroverse is back up and running. Since everyone wants to know whats going on, Im just going to post it here for everyone to read:

• www.dextroverse.org was down around early 12/11/02, with the default "Plesk" page shown, like the account has been reset. I try to log into the ftp and I get an incorrect name/password error. So I email my admin asking whats up.

Admin's response:
"Your "site" records have been confiscated. Appearantly there was a posting on a forum offering some sort of drug or drug paraphanalia, and a parent reported it.

Things are still under investigation at this time."

My Response:
"What?!? How come I was not informed of this when the fact happened? I clearly stated in the new member agreement and on the board rules that there will be no talking about buying or selling drugs. And when its reported by a "parent" my site is instantly taken down, and im given nothing? This is complete bullshit. I want to know what the member names where and what the message said. Also, what kind of "investigation" are you talking about?"

His response:
"This all "just happened". You were informed at the first chance we had to inform you. I did not personally see the site, before it was taken down, so I'm not sure. Appearantly there was alot of information about "drugs", that many may not consider to be drugs.

A "parent" did not report anything to us. We do not base decisions on what a person (parent or otherwise) tells us. We take action when we're contacted by a proper authority as to possibly illegal content on our servers, and we cooperate fully with any such authority.

If anything comes of this I'm sure you'll be contacted by the proper authorities. "


Those are all the facts Ive recieved. Evidently some parent contacted some sort of law enforcement, and it seems that law enforcement told my host to pull my plug, then it seems they copyed all the page's data (im guessing for forum posts), and is conducting some sort of investigation. I will keep you informed as I get informed. My old host was www.ezhost4less.com, and their terms of service are located here.

NEWS>> Assault and Burglary on Coricidin ( 9/30/02 )

"Earlier in the night, the friend, John Pecoreno, 18, fed him a dozen tablets of Coricidin Cough & Cold to clear up a lingering cough. The reaction was swift.

Cahill, who family and friends said has a lifelong history of mental illness, thought he was being poisoned.

In what likely was a drug-induced psychotic breakdown, Cahill clawed at his face, howled, rolled on the ground, drank milk and bolted from the Tuckerton house before help could arrive around 4:30 a.m. He ran and desperately beat on doors, seeking help he never received.

Instead, his run ended a little more than a mile away, when an off-duty security guard, likely in fear of his own life, shot him. Eric Howey also killed his own mother by mistake with the .40-caliber handgun he was licensed to possess"
