[quote]For those of you who don't know, Mod Infinity is RuneZone(Nathan) , the owner of the RS Fansite "Runezone.com" You can see him confirming so here: [url]http://i.imgur.com/E2mstzU.png[/url], or here: [url]http://runezone.com/status/index.php?id=73293[/url] Mod Infinity forged a court injunction, and was too stupid and left in a line which could be googled and traced back to the template he used in a tutorial. Later he claimed "ignorance" saying he did not know a COURT had to approve a COURT injunction, and got a rival fansite shut down (RS Demon) You can see/read the evidence here: [url]http://i.imgur.com/qMEDsrV.png[/url] Other Evidence of conflict of interest: [LIST] [*]RuneZone.com or its subsidiaries have appeared in every community chronicle since the 2nd one. [*]Jagex created rules which stated ads on fansites could not advertise any games, or RWT. This is impossible to do, since ads are given by a third party which goes off users search history. Meaning sites like tip.it do not get platinum fansite status, however, of course, RuneZone.com is a platinum fansite. [*]Mod Infinity is the community manager, and "Fansite curator" many moderators he has chosen are from RuneZone, and him being the fansite curator is an obvious conflict of interest. [*]Further evidence of Mod Infinity trying to take over the RS fansite market: [url]http://i.imgur.com/JDGV37I.png[/url][/quote] [/LIST] [CENTER][I]-[URL="http://redd.it/2fni67"]source[/URL]-[/I][/CENTER] [Quote] Before he was hired by Jagex, Mod Infinity forged a court injunction to get a rival fansite shut down, and left in a line which could be googled and traced back to the template he used in a tutorial. Later he claimed "ignorance" saying he did not know a COURT had to approve a COURT injunction. I posted about this three months ago in a related thread about Infinity's favoritism towards RuneZone: In 2011 RuneZone and another site (RSDemon) were in a spat that involved them using content from RuneScape Wiki, which was the reason I was involved. There were also other circumstances related to those two sites trying to merge, or having previously been merged -- I'm not familiar with the details. Nathan, from RuneZone (now known as Infinity) sent the following to RSDemon's host: [quote]<RuneZone>, Petitioner, v. <RSDemon>, Respondent VERIFIED PETITION FOR TEMPORARY INJUNCTION JURISDICTIONAL ALLEGATIONS This is an action for the equitable remedy of a temporary injunction. Copyrighted content is being used and distributed. FACTUAL ALLEGATIONS Petitioner has personal knowledge that respondent <RSDemon> has a well-formed plan to act in a manner that will bypass the petitioner claims. The planned act complained of is COPYRIGHT ACT 1988. There is no substantial public interest that will be contravened by this Honorable Court issuing an injunction favoring this particular petitioner. There is a substantial likelihood that petitioner will prevail in this action, because the facts obtained on the record by discovery will reveal that the website in question is in breach of numerous computer misuse acts. UNDER PENALTIES OF PERJURY I affirm that the facts alleged in the foregoing are true and correct according to my own personal knowledge. BEFORE ME personally appeared Peter Piper who, being by me first duly sworn, executed the foregoing in my presence and stated to me that the facts alleged therein are true and correct according to his own personal knowledge. <RuneZone>[/quote] Emphasis mine, and I've edited out the names of the two people, but one of them is Nathan and the other was the owner of RSDemon. This supposed court injunction was sent by RuneZone to GoDaddy, and RSDemon was shut down. Now, if you Google the part in bold, you'll see it's from a tutorial on how to write a court injunction. Presumably, Nathan or someone else with RuneZone copied the tutorial and sent it, without any court approval, to the website host. Nathan later wrote to RSDemon: [I]There seems to have been some inaccuracies in the court injunction - our legal adviser had assumed that the client of a corporation could indeed submit a court injunction, however I have personally researched this and have found a court of law must verify the court injunction, and have such have withdraw the previous court injunction due to inaccuracies.[/I] Aha! Believe it or not, court injunctions actually have to be approved by a court! However, I think the damage had been done already -- the other site was shut down anyway because restoring it would have involved some sort of legal skirmish which neither of them seemed to have the money for. So that's the story of how RuneZone forged a court injunction to get a rival site shut down. Everything above is true to the best of my knowledge, although it's been three years so I'm mostly basing it off the correspondence I had with the owners of RuneZone and RSDemon at the time. I have copied the correspondence between me, RuneZone (Infinity) and RSDemon. It can be found here -- these emails have only been edited to remove personal information (names, emails), and are otherwise as-is. First is me talking with the owner of RSDemon, then me talking with RuneZone (Mod Infinity). It is not entirely in chronological order. This should corroborate what I've claimed here. Numerous people sent in complaints to the fansite program at the time, although nothing happened. Of course, Infinity somehow ended up being put in charge of the fansite support program, which has led to all sorts of favoritism towards his site -- you can read more about that here. Today, a thread was posted in the fansite forums relating to this issue -- Infinity gave sort of a non-response similar to this that didn't really address anything, and locked the thread. I am not posting the actual response due to privacy concerns. So, what do you guys think? Infinity currently runs the fansite support program, and has shown considerable favoritism to his own site, at the expense of others. Is this acceptable?[/quote] [center]-[I][URL="http://redd.it/2fon9y"]source[/URL][/I]-[/center]
