They had doxxed and/or were harassing someone irl...something...something, the hosting company got involved with the complaint.

But yeah, Boobob summed it up more creatively.

they even went nicely, in the end. Found their own server, free of silly things like 'site rules'. good on them.

who specifically is they? what was the form and nature of the alleged harassment?

I don't know exactly who "they" were. I would guess just a handful of bad actors, not necessarily regular members of Ip2. Nor do I know the nature of the doxxing and harassment. They complained to Saidit's host, which in turn threatened to shut down Saidit unless Ip2 was removed. Hosting companies are stupid.

I'm sure Mags knows all the juicy details.

The courtesy is appreciated. It seems the public domain is lacking firsthand testimony.
