    Question Any Other Network like The Planet

    The attached picture is an example of the stuff hosted on the planets network.

    Do you know of any other hosting company that allows selling pirated movies, promoting warez and software cracks and terrorist acts in Farsi language at their data centers? (Just like what is going on at The Planet that is a company in which hosting of any sites that violate their AUP is acceptable -- if they're in Farsi)

    I doubt the planet allows pirated movies, promoting warez and illegal software. It is against the law

    The above picture demonstrates a trusted member of Fexon.com, can buy over 800 movies on CD-Rs/DVD-Rs for less than 2$ each, and download copyrighted soundtracks and screenplays.

    terrorist acts? Grow up and don't comment about things that are far away from the fact! I kept looking around the screen-shot you posted and couldn't find anything related to your post!

    You need to get a life as you have so much free time to just come and and make your first impression like what you did!

    As far as I know they allow the Farsi contents to violate their AUP.

    Is there anywhere in their AUP/TOU that actually names the language/country that is prohibited from using their services? I'd like to read the part of their AUP that you claim that's mentioned ' we don't host any website in Farsi!!!'

    Then you reckon it definitely works here? If Theplanet ain't able to get it resolved, WebHostingTalk.com is not even able to resolve it in slightest! Also would be great if you can address the questions that I asked.

    Amir, I think that about:blank is either holding a grudge against The Planet for something or has a problem with Farsi-speaking people.

    That screenshot was an example for selling pirated movies, the next pictures will show promoting warez and so on.
    Amir is an islamic/arabic name but Golestan is an Iranian one, so you should be able to read Farsi(The Arabized version of Persian Language) and confirm that site pirates movies...

    How did you conclude that I meant their AUP states a language/country 'is prohibited from their services'?
    They just attach no importance to the sites that violate their AUP/TOS in Farsi.

    I actually got the same understanding from the way you constructed your accusation.

    I believe all companies (especially of The Planet caliber) attach importance to web sites that break any kind of law, should their attention be driven to that and investigation taken place. It has nothing to do with any language, or as you point out in your case, it has nothing to do with sites published in Farsi.

    Exactly my point! And how did you relate that to being a terrorist site? You might want to research little a bit more on other things such as the term 'warez' or 'crack' doest not mean 'terrirost', rather than my name or last name.

    X + Y = XY? Not correct, that's how exactly you came up with the conclusion of 'terrirost' term.

    Maybe it's having a hard time to determine if that site is violationg their TOS and AUP. How many employees at theplanet speak Farsi? Zero?

    Warez (pronounced as though spelled "wares" or possibly by some pronounced like the city of "Juarez") is a term used by software "pirates" to describe software that has been stripped of its copy-protection and made available on the Internet for downloading. People who create warez sites sometimes call them "warez sitez" and use "z" in other pluralizations. In our brief investigation of warez sites, we found a number of sites to be permanently "under construction." Several included freeware and shareware that is legally downloadable.

    Prehaps you were having a laugh about crack? Crack in computer world is known as codes that break into paid softwares and they start using them without purchasing or registering with the developer.

    Why are you playing the fool?
    I think any fool knows that 'warez" and "crack" do NOT mean "terror".

    You better of reading your first (initial) post that you referred to that site as a terrirost. If you're unable to read it, below you can find it.

    I have to point out that the chances that there are people at ThePlanet.com that specialize in being able to read Farsi are probably few. It is probably pretty hard for a company to have language specialists that can track every single website and determine violations of TOS. I would imagine that the problem is not unique to Farsi websites but probably Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, and a whole host of other written languages.

    Greetings Rich,

    Good point. But in majority of the cases, datacenters or hosts are being notified by others via the complains they receive. I don't think any datacenter will actually hire people to just read and watch content of every single website.

    Please don't quibble!

    Where did I reference to that picture as an example of Terrorist acts?
    I just said they allow: 1-Selling pirated movies 2-Promoting warez 3- Terrorist acts, in Farsi.
    One Farsi site may pirate movies, the other promote warez and the last terroizes people/apostates of Islam. Additionally this does not violate the possibility of hosting the site(s) that do all of these at the same time, again in Farsi.
    I'm not saying all Farsi sites are the same...!!!!

    There are many sites around like that one. shbabonline.com is one (have to log in to actually see the stuff though). They used to use managed.com, now appear to be using Pegasus Web Technologies.

    Tried reporting it to managed.com and just got brushed off most of the time. Found out about them thru kiddies spamming on my forums about free movie downloads. Every data center will have them. They don't get noticed until someone reports it.
    Happily hosting @ Dathorn.com (Since 3/2003), Ispeeds.net (Since 2004), & Quadspeedi.net (Since 7/2005)!

    While you didn't point out to that web site as the one promoting terrorist activity, you didn't specify what it was promoting as well. So by naming all the things you listed, you made it sound like the site is guilty of all the aforementioned accusations.

    Also, this:
    Just like what is going on at The Planet that is a company in which hosting of any sites that violate their AUP is acceptable -- if they're in Farsi
    That sounded a bit too distinctive (if you know what I mean) toward Farsi speaking folks, and seemed like a massive generalization. Again, you did not elaborate and were very specific toward Farsi language.

    I thought the picture will Specify what it IS promoting.

    At that specific site they do all these illegal stuff but the picture does not show their islamic terrorist acts, it only demonstrates the killing of movies by violating the copyrights.
    (looks like the copyright violation in Farsi is legal in The Planet's datacenter)
    I think in their forum you can find out how a psycho muslim terrorist kills people and fancies himself as a hero. Just search for Amir(Fexon's admin)'s Topics. Such persons with no morality are potentially dangerous specially whenever they are being supported by the islamic republic For their services to that regime.
    Fexon.com sells pirated movies and its owners are the terrorists, they have threatened me to stop talking about what they're doing, otherwise, they said, a muslim comes to kill/**** me!

    Anyway, this all depends on how we define the word terrorist and their acts.

    Yes, it's true. Fexon has not been the only Farsi site that violates TP's AUP, in fact there are so many "Farsi speaking folks" that think since The Planet's staff never suspend their activities they're alowed to do WHATEVER they like on the sites hosted on TP! Tell me if you have doubts about this and I will try to introduce some of them...

    Exclamation CI Host

    Being from the Dallas area it was interesting to see all over the evening news last night how CI Host DID have the "plug pulled" on a server that WAS hosting sites mainly by far-out clerics promoting terrorism and their version of "holy war" under the guise of religious sites.
    Even then CI was "covered" because they just sold the box, then their customer was "reselling" to hosts who hosted the radical's sites.
    This was real terror stuff, not pirated software or warez sites.
    CI doesn't have as good a reputation as the Planet but still, I can't fault them for knowing what's on every web site on every server especially in various Arabic dialects intended for people from specific parts of the world. As soon as they were made aware they "pulled the plug" and gave the feds everything they asked for to help try and locate the originators. About all they could do.

    about:blank, you are poorly educated in regard of what Islam is, as well as you do not know much about Muslim people. I cannot speak reasonably with someone of such profile. I'm sorry, I will not continue this discussion with you.

    I am an apostate of Islam. It orders to kill the apostates! I'm condemned to capital islamic punishment only for not thinking like some of my ancestors.
    "You are in violation of the laws of Quran and Sharia if you apostatize. Apostasy is the biggest sin that Allah cannot forgive. If you decide to turn your back to Islam, you must be killed."

    Muslims think their religious beliefs are sacred.
    You can read about Islam at faithfreedom.org, apostatesofislam.org, efsha.co.uk/indexen.htm.
