I have sent a proposal to IPT and am awaiting their reply.
Most likely, if it pans out there will be an addon payment (albeit a much discounted one) that will go directly to IPT to support their running costs but such option will only be available to long term package subscribers. It may be freeleech or it may just be upload credits to help you get stuff. Of course these are only proposals and we do not guarantee that IPT will accept them but we are doing our best.
Our support team is being swamped with requests and we’re dealing with it as fast as we can but we hope that users can check our blog for regular updates to reduce the workload. We’re also available on IRC when we are around.
I have read through every single comment posted on the blog and we thank those of you who have expressed their support and understanding. Also, I would like to make it clear that this is not a ploy to get more money from you guys, we have had IPT for so many years now and we’ve been working in dealing with all the abuse cases that crop up every time. Any additional addon money would go to IPT, not us. In fact, we don’t want to have anything to do with handling money paid for IPT.
Besides the frequent IPT password hijacks, we’ve had people posting IPT torrent files to public forums (linked to our ID) which is what triggered the current ban, sharing our IPT details, spamming their forums and even try to fake ratio (I have no idea why?). We were fully prepared to continue dealing with it but it is IPT that has lost patience and not our decision that had pulled the service.
Posting hateful comments actually make the problem worse, as I have linked these posts to IPT and I’m sure they are monitoring it. Show them that the most of you guys are genuine, responsible users who really appreciate the service rather than people who are just there to suck IPT dry. I truly believe it’s only a few bad eggs that are ruining this service for everybody.
For those of you who have been asking whether we will consider implement logging to catch abusers, no, we will not do so as this will undermine privacy for everyone which is still our primary reason for our service.
