dalnet is another issue, don't get me wrong, i hope that Dalnet will continue to exist. what they will want to try to enforce as policy has it's merits, i will definitely agree. however, on the other hand ... Dalnet suffered very heavy attacks. of course, it is nothing i endorse. but whomever attacked, had his own personal twisted reasons to do it. the warez/mp3/etc communities are usually in league or parts of the groups who (D)DoS the servers. i wonder if whomever started it, won't wait to "finish" it. since that was not a small "i'll teach you" attack, but it was a full scale "lets destroy the network" attack. lets see first if Dalnet will grow back to it's former size first, then see if, and what they will be eventually able to enforce, and stay alive.
