The URL says the blog has been removed. Anyone have the skinny on this one?

EDIT: multiple posters indicate that the blog has been taken down due to alleged DMCA violations.

OT EDIT: First the thread was moved without notice (EDIT: then, bafflingly, moved back...), now I note that the title was changed seemingly without notice as well. The silent hand of Mod is quite active today. I write these words to advise that whatever written here may or not be my words or someone else's. You never can tell on this forum...

MOD EDIT: Oh take it easy lol, we had to confirm the news, you have to admit, it sounds like a joke. As for changing the title it was a clarification. Don't worry we are not going to put words in your mouth or make it seem like you are endorsing eating house pets or anything. I realize it is 'cool' to pretend Moderators are a mysterious and sinister group but come on lol, no need for a tin foil hat here I assure you.

EDIT: How can you know I don't endorse eating house pets? ;-)

MOD EDIT: Well, I didn't say you didn't, just that we wouldn't put the words in your mouth for ya lol. Btw try the Golden Retriever, I hear it is excellent

Natfka occasionally posts on the BOLS forums, but those also seem to be down. Maybe we'll get a response soon.

Disappointing too. Wild Eldar rumors were much more interesting than Dakka's penis jokes thread.

Well it can't be a server problem, it says very clearly that the blog has been 'removed', maybe GW got it shut down?

They arent just on a crusade metal oxide, they are on a great crusade, to unite ALL websites to their cause and destroy any heresy! Dakka Dakka sure is next. Although hopefully sub sector Warseer is next, give us a bit more time to destroy all those posts about GW prices.

They can still post rumors I guess. Apparently there was White Dwarf content on it. Pretty thin reason IMO.

I am not sure if those DMCAs have anything to do with the current outage if you notice the day they at least a week old. Google would do an instant take down of the exact offending stuff and be done with it. They don't take down a site unless they keep on getting DMCAs not first offense or even second.

I did a search through the DMCAs and there have been a handful this year. So, putting 2 and 2 together won't exactly get you 4 in this case.

I'll chalk this up to web outage until I hear otherwise.

It also is another illegal use of the DMCA.

Section 3, Ammendment V of the FAIR Use Act allows for unauthorized use of materials for "criticism, comment, news reporting, scholarship, or research."

While they are not the AP or Reuters...they are news.

They're actually serving google with notice that a blogger using Google is infringing. I'm not a lawyer but I think the content on the site would be covered under fair use as it was put up as commentary. Pics of high elves from white dwarf... What a larf. Hey, let's prevent anyone from talking about our product; that'll surely result in people buying it!

Anyone want to tell me how GW is not at war with its customers now? Instead of being a better company they are attempting to silence nay sayers and rumour sites, newsflash, thats what facists do.

Rick Priestley said it best:
Bryan always said that if the studio ever had to mix with the manufacturing and sales part of the business it would destroy the studio. And I have to say – he wasn’t wrong there! The modern studio isn’t a studio in the same way; it isn’t a collection of artists and creatives sharing ideas and driving each other on. It’s become the promotions department of a toy company – things move on!

We don't know if they nuked his blog. It might simply be a server issue. Lets wait to find out.

So you're saying that because his blog has been the target of 4 DMCA takedown notices in the last 6 months, and that belloflostsouls.net, who posted the same pictures, usually within hours of natfka, both being mysteriously unavailable within moments of each other is no reason to assume that his blog was actually removed? That's the funniest thing I've heard all day.
