So i just signed up to What.cd last week, still reeling from the loss of oink :( and then i promptly get this today:
Dear registered user of the site What.cd,
We have recently been investigating the activities of the users of the
site http://www.what.cd/ and we have found that this site exists for
sole purpose of music piracy.
Pirating music is a criminal offence and we believe it should be
to you that the results outweigh the benefits - hard working artists
won't be rewarded for their work and will stop producing music,
ultimately leading to a severely reduced selection of music both in the
shops and for download.
The RIAA had hoped that the disabling by the police of the large
music site, Oink.cd, would stop a lot of people from engaging in
as they don't want to be seen as criminals. However, this appears to
not be the case, as two large new sites have sprung up in its place.
This email is the final warning to all of you who were members of
Oink.cd and are current members of What.cd. If we find you to be
committing any more criminal acts of piracy then we will have to press
charges against you, as representatives of the major record companies
while i don't think anything will come of this (i haven't actually used the account yet) i'm surprised they got my email so quickly, did anyone else get this message? Any waffles people get this?
apparently it was leftover from a sql attack
according to zeropaid so if anyone has a what.cd account change all of your passwords read
