I was forced to use an anonymous proxy just to read this thread.
I do hope that there are other alternatives to solve this current situation, other than blocking the whole subset IP from Malaysia. I am sad to hear this, and further disappointed that certain quarters of my own people (presumably) has caused great pain on the admin's side.
I like to point out that even before you've decided to block the whole lot of us, some of the manga links aren't already working - I believe that some of the manga servers have already blocked us before this forum. Still, this happens.
If there's abuse in the usage of the forum, I think that blocking each individual's account is better than cursing the whole lot of us into the same punishment - even though I know that it'll be a whole load of works for the admins/mods.
As for the mass ad-clicking, I'm not sure why it happened - maybe many Malaysians just want to contribute to the forum in that way? Nah, I can't imagine any other reasons. Please highlight me on that.
As for the DOS attack, I don't think that any ordinary Joe or Jane have any benefit from that, and certainly not my ordinary countrymen. It must be that many of the attacks originated from someplace else, and that there's many computers and servers in Malaysia that are not properly configured, making them a zombie platform for such large-scale attack. This is not a delicate problem to be handled by the admins, I perfectly understand that.
I hope that the admins do reconsider the action taken, given that we're already blocked for quite some time now. Honestly said, I miss some of the manga here because I couldn't find it somewhere else - but I never sucked your bandwith (unless one manga file per day warrant for the definition of "sucking"). If only there's other means of solving this issue, it'll be better then.
Hey, we also have many Tazmo-basher here, and we're not bad people, really.... Being a third-world citizen doesn't mean that we're less good than the rest of the world. *sigh* I can only beg for your forgiveness for the whole lot of us. Now I can only wait, and wait, until I can read Death Note again...
The greatest pain is loneliness.
I stand in front of everyone, looking for comfort, but all I see are eyes of disgust.
Someday I will become Hokage, and let everyone acknowledge my strength.
