I was taking a look at a blog which has sprung up with similar intentions to this blog. The link is War on World of Murlocs. Their first, and only blog entry is:
I guess its time to fight fire with fire I guess?
I say we just DDoS their sorry asses back into murky water!!
Who on our side do we have you ask?
Peyton’s 3 lawyers!
And her secret 4th lawyer, Johnny himself!
Clearly, while writing this blog, I’ve been under the false impression that the average WoWscape user was at least smart enough to bail ship when presented with the correct information.
The author of this blog is for starters, encouraging illegal attacks on a web server. That’s a crime, and there have been people arrested for this in the past. You are no better than the animal rights activists who raid scientist’s homes and destroy their property. You are a hypocrite.
Here’s another misinformed user, who goes by t0m0thy.
It sucks that it had to go this way. I think we, as a community, need to learn a little from this. Peyton, I know it blows to have so many people (Censored) at you over this, but you did the right thing yourself for helping them, and maybe Scape just isn’t mature enough to do it themselves yet.
Ok, so admittedly, the idea of helping out this family sounds very attractive morally. In fact, I wouldn’t mind lending them a hand myself. But the problem people have with Peyton isn’t a problem with maturity. If Peyton had at the very least informed the WoWscape players that she was going to be breaching the TOS they agreed to, this issue might not have as much merit. But even if she had, the agreement and pretext that most people donated under was that all donations go towards WoWscape’s server maintenance. Here’s why: how do we know Peyton actually donated this money back to the family? We don’t. WoWscape isn’t supposed to be a charity. If I were Peyton and I honestly wanted to help this family, I would’ve contacted the family and asked them to setup a PayPal account and informed them that I was instructing a large community of their situation and that we would try to help as much as possible.
The simple fact is: Peyton’s own facts don’t add up. She has spun a story full of so much lies that it’s getting hard to remember which lies she needs to remember in order not to contradict another lie. And it’s getting obvious.
