Esoteric Online

Greetings all,

As some of you may be aware, the Library is currently unavailable, as our host of 5 years decided to suspend our account due to multiple anonymous and official copyright complaints. Complaints are also being made to Ning, unfortunately for whoever is doing this, Ning already knows the library isn't hosted on their network, 

This is an obvious attack on who we are and what we do, considering its recently frequency of complaints and their nature, and given that our host has had no problem whatsoever with our activities, since we first went online in April 2009. Therefore the library is currently being backed up, and setup again at a new location, in fact it will now be mirrored at several locations now so that in the event this happens again, it will simply use an alternate location and we will have no downtime. 

Hopefully I will be able to complete everything this evening when I get home from work, and have things up again sometime around 9pm CST. My sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.

Our library has also recently been the victim of a multitude of hacking attempts, and is even sending out spam with our system email addresses in an attempt to get us black-listed - these attempts of course have failed, and are being remedied as we speak. To those responsible who may be here as members, I have all of your IP and traceroute information, and this along with the files you have uploaded are being reported to the cyber-crimes department, so I hope attacking a non-profit spiritual community was worth it.

You send us emails saying this is our "Karma for banning you", that is not only laughable but also untrue - it is our Karma for the good we do, that keeps us coming right back up and better than ever after any and every blow.

That being said, if any one of you happen to see or hear anything suspicious, please notify myself, another admin, or our Support Group as soon as possible, and perhaps we can prevent some of these things in the future.

It isn't how many times something or someone is knocked down, it's how we get right back up. Things like this only serve to make us a stronger community, and prompt us to make changes and improvements to return even better than before, so these childish and high-school level attacks on us only serve the greater good in the end, rendering all ill-intentions null and void.

Thanks everyone for your patience with this issue and again I apologize for these individuals actions - we'll be back together real soon, and I'll send out a notification when all is resolved this evening.

In The Work,

Thank you, Tris, for the update. I was wondering what had transpired when I saw the library coming down last night. I am grateful to you for all you do for this community and shame on those intent on destoying it. You will NOT succeed. We are an Esoteric City of Light!

Oh, thank goodness. I am new here and have been reading a lot of stuff. I was worried that I'd lost it for good.

So... that's what happened... right in the middle of some reading/research...

Thank you Tris for telling us.

I don't post or talk much, but your library/site is a wonderful resource. I hope you get it fixed soonest.

The hackers have been on a tear lately...

Evil, doesn't need a reason, it just IS...
