Problems accessing msfn.org
Posted 09 May 2009 - 04:05 AM
I'm starting to believe the whole Poland is affected.

Gosh i hope not..
If this continue this way, along with another (financial) issues, we will just shut it down. Simple as that.
This is the BEST site of its kind on the internet!!
Please dont be afraid to ask for help XPER (Donations) ..
Please dont take this site away from us just because people are abusing things and making it hard!!
Have you tried to put ALOT OF CAPTHA's on the signup page?? (Maybe manually approving new members (As another site i am on has done for the same reason))
You have worked A VERY LONG TIME on this project and it would be very sad to see it go away..
I am very sad to see your message above and i hope it doesnt lead to anything bad... I love this site and of all other sites im on of this type,none come close to this one!
Things are getting very bad (Economy,etc) and i hope this site doesnt suffer for it... (Like everything else is)
What can we do to help you???

Yes, it was. Poland was blocked because of few users who tried to destroy msfn with posting hundreds spam posts every day on forums. We tried everything to block those users but without success. They used a lot of different IP's from Poland that we couldn't keep up with blocking.
The largest Internet access services provider in poland is TP. Their main offer is ADSL with dynamic IP. The TP keeps track of what IP was used by whom in what time period, so it is possible to track a "villain" down and prosecute accordingly. The TP has a right to disconnect the user violating the law, as well. By knowing the IP used it should be possible to track down the provider and perhaps the country region, as TP does use different IP ranges for them.
Perhaps, an official investigation will be the most effective tool to get the "punk" stopped.

Perhaps I could be of some assistance with legal actions against the attacker. But, the first thing to do would be to find out what company is the the Internet access service provider of the attacker.

If so,maybe you can give that to XPER and he can unblock just YOUR ip??

Windows 98 Unofficial Service Pack wars.

There is another version of the Windows 98 Unofficial Service Pack made by a small group of polish people (I would rather say teenagers because of their language habbits). The core of their distribution is the good old USP 2.1 from Gape. They added some themes, utilities and made some improvements through resource editing. Then presented their creation as USP 4.x
So, they are Windows 98 fans, as well. But, they do not like the MSFN, as their creation got significant amount of bad opinions here.
The term "Windows 98 USP wars" is my own name of the USP related flame war. Apparently, the changes introduced in the "new" polish USP edition were not considered as significanly usable by the majority of the local community. The Gape refused to include the changes in his package, as well. The flame war was suppressed by moderators, as far as I remember.

After posting a few comments about Unofficial Service Pack Plus, I tried to keep away from the flames. There was no point in arguing with people preferring quantity over the quality, I believe.

Is it really necesary to block the whole country IP range?
Posted 21 September 2009 - 01:39 AM
However, since you said you have stactic IP, maybe we can find a way to whitelist your IP.
Please do PM me with your IP number.
I'm really sorry for the inconvenience this is causing all our long-standing and valued Polish members.
I'm glad, however, that you remain with us! It's good to have you around. You rock!

The DNS was not working for me, at first. But, now it is working as expected.
I'm not receiving any E-Mail notifications, however.
