The IP2 sub is going to be removed in about 25 hours because our server company is forcing our hand.
There were a large number of complaints about the IP2 sub lodged by one person with our server company. (Please do not name the server company in these comments or I will remove your comment.) Eventually the person creating these accusations convinced the server company that the whole of saidit.net was violating the server company's acceptable use policy.
So, about 3 days ago, I got a message from the server company saying we had 96 hours to leave their servers and shut all of saidit.net down.
But since literally all the complaints generated were about IP2, and we are a sub-based website with many communities, we reached a compromise with the server company to remove IP2 to stay online. Our only other option seems to be to continuously change servers and server companies literally every week, which isn't a sustainable option realistically. Plus IP2 was generally dragging things down the pyramid of debate quite badly, which is the exact thing that caused Acceptable Use Policy violations with our server company. So there seems to be no other option moving forward than the let IP2 go.
I am not happy about this, and we've done everything we can do to fight against it, including multiple server migrations, and countless nights of enduring DDOS attacks, but at this point for the longevity and sustainability of the saidit.net project we've got to let IP2 go now. IP2 will be locked at 3pm central time tomorrow. The mods of IP2 were given 3-day advance notice (the max I had myself) to migrate to a new forum.
To anyone from IP2 reading this, thank you for using saidit. Sorry it's being forced to end this way.
