    Question Mark

    As we all know Peerguardian2 is a big lifesaver for P2P guy right now, but...now...

    What do I do, who do I trust?

    I got a email from Phrosty@gmail.com:

    "Methlabs.org and PeerGuardian developers in exile

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    The majority of the Methlabs.org administration and development team
    have been forced out of their website following a series of threats
    and incidents. The member of the group that had been trusted to handle
    the finances and servers slowly managed to take over each individual
    part of the web site's assets, eventually claiming control over the
    entire group and locking out the majority of staff.

    The organisation's founders, Tim Leonard and Ken McKelland, as well as
    the majority of the organisation's staff and developers (including the
    main developer of the PeerGuardian2 application, Cory Nelson and the
    staff members responsible for auditing the PeerGuardian Blocklists)
    have all been forcibly removed from the servers that were funded from
    donations given to the organisation by happy users, and from text
    advertising placed on the websites forum and project pages.

    The money, which was to have been used to help fund the development
    and hosting costs of the group is now unavailable, stolen by the one
    who was trusted to keep it.

    Development of PeerGuardian will resume, and the website will
    temporarily move to http://peerguardian.sourceforge.net/ until a new
    domain is registered and a new server found. The intention of the
    group is to register a non-profit organisation to handle the
    development of Methlabs applications and to promote open source
    projects that aid both security, privacy and peer-to-peer
    technologies, in order to prevent a repeat of this incident.

    The team wish all their users the best through this difficult time,
    but promise that development will continue. Please visit
    http://peerguardian.sf.net/ for news as we make progress. All other
    sites, including http://methlabs.org and http://blocklist.org, are
    under control of the rogue member and should not be trusted for safe
    updates to our applications or lists.

    A new build of PeerGuardian will be released soon to reflect these
    changes. Until then we ask you to continue using Beta 6a but with
    caution as the update servers are no longer under our control.

    All staff are available in irc.freenode.net, channel #methlabs if you
    wish to chat.

    Thanks,

    The Methlabs Staff (looking for a new home),

    Adam Hoier, Cory Nelson, Eric Mayuk, Fox Lowe, James Shanelec,
    Joseph Farthing, Ken McKelland, Steffen Tuzar, Tim Leonard

    The website http://methlabs.org/projects/ says different.
    Is this an act of R*** ? What do I do? I would never run a P2P without PG2.

    Nothing probably, he legally owns the domain and server
