ROH Attacking XWT?
XtremeWrestlingTorrents, known more commonly as XWT, is the largest online professional wrestling torrent aggregate in the world, and they claim they are being attacked by Ring of Honor personnel attempting to shut down what they believe to be the "illegal file sharing" of their product..
XWT has experienced numerous difficulties in the past few months, severely effecting their business and services. Their website is completely member funded, and members are only given access via extremely limited invites. XWT released a statement on the issue:.
"Once again our Paypal account has been reported and frozen. XWT has been in the news recently partly because of the DDoS attacks we have experienced but mainly due to a person called Nate Glass who has been reporting our donation services. This guy runs a website called Take Down Piracy and has been hired by Scott Colton, Nigel Mcguinness and ROH.
"Over the past year we have been receiving DMCA notices to remove over 400 torrents from XWT. We as always have refused this request because we are not hosting copyright material, we are hosting torrents which are meta links and also legal where our server is located. Not only that, but DMCA notices are null and void outside of the US.
"Nate Glass is doing all he can to try and please his clients, who by the way are paying him to have these torrents removed, something he is failing at. So he is going after our payment methods instead, hoping we will not be able to pay our server bill and therefore XWT goes offline.We are in the process at looking at ALL options in order to receive donations. Specifically payment processors that are not US based. If any of you have suggestions, send us a message. Let's continue to fight back against these bully tactics.".
If true this is crazy but I can't say I blame them for wanting it gone.
