Oh, I thought you knew... Natasha is magic.
She cast an unforgivable spell, and made the other site die.


Update (again): Google searching 'Furryteens' no longer has links to the site in question.
I know someone mentioned google before, and for the time being, it is safe to gogle 'Furryteens'

Hooray! It died :D, magic indeed...
Thanks to the wonder of Natasha! Wonder if we should just leave it...
Maybe to prevent future issues claim it or something?

It's gone! Like, completely!

All hail Natasha's power! Let any before her fear her wrath and taste their blood!

Ok, super big news:

I did some more research, and the domain expired yesterday!
To follow up, I checked and the site is down pending renewal or deletion...
However, also through searching, I saw the last update the site had was almost a year ago. (Meaning it may have just been left to expire)

So, keep those fingers crossed, but for now, our neighbour is gone.

*Natasha, I don't know how easy it would be for you to aquire this domain, if possible... (I am not sure how long a period they have to renew the site before it goes.)


Just to let you all know!
... This is like an early X-Mas present xD

Craaaaap DAS! You deserve a nobel peace prize for what you've done! And what luck that we might not even need to use a lawyer! I've stumbled upon that sight way too many times, and my gay eyes just can't take something like that. Cookie for you, and believe me, I rarely give them out.

Figured I'd update this with where we stand now.

-I've done everything I can afford to do to acquire the domain, now it's a waiting game.  A rather long waiting game.
-If we don't get the domain, it'll probably go to a generic squatter (or, as I like to call them, legal extortionists)
-The previous owner appears to be completely gone, so while it's possible that it'll get renewed, it's looking like it'll lapse.
-If it gets renewed, or if another porn site gets it, I'll start legal proceedings, but that's only an option if it's a US-based site, and those are less common nowadays for precisely this reason.

Now, one thing I wanted to mention.  The process of acquiring expiring domain names is tricky enough as-is, but there's an entire industry built around snatching expiring domain names.  The steps I've taken to get this one are supposed to be somewhat reliable, but it's much easier to get by with if there's no other interested parties.

So.

On this site, please don't post the name of the domain we're trying to acquire, either directly or indirectly.  Thanks, and wish us luck :-)

Dammit.

The previous owner of the domain (allegedly) renewed it with six days left before the auction ended.  SIX DAYS.  And, what's more, they're now a UK company, which means we have no legal recourse to shut them down.

So, that was $30 wasted, and we still have a nefarious neighbour to deal with.

There is one thing we can all do, though, to lessen the impact of this site.  On any computers you use, you can use the HOSTS file to override where any domain points, and thus won't have to worry about accidentally going to that other site anymore.  Here's instructions on how to edit your HOSTS file, for Windows (for other OSes, Google is your friend):  http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hostsfaq.htm#Editor

Add the following entries:
0.0.0.0   furryteens.com
0.0.0.0   www.furryteens.com

Ok, now it really makes me wonder....

First off, do they know about us, and toying with us (i.e. not just moving to another domain when that expired. *I think this may be a public topic read by everyone*)

Secondly, obviously they know that they were doing something illegal (i.e. Domain squatting on a site for minors), that they suddenly up and move to a place out of the jurisdiction of this law...

It is a public topic, and we have fairly high search engine ranking (without even trying, really).  Which is why I removed mentions of furryteens.com from the thread :-)

The funny thing is there's no mention of that specific domain name anywhere on that site. (yes, I've checked the entire thing)

Not surprising, many of those sorts of sites have a ton of domains that they use as aliases, specifically to capitalize on this sort of situation.

They had to move!
According to this, there is a ban on sites with pornographic content with URL's appealing to minors, voted on by the HoR.

Pence's amendment said that anyone who uses a misleading domain name to try to lure people into visiting an obscene Web site faces up to two years in prison, and anyone who tries to lure a minor to a sexually explicit site that is "harmful to minors" faces up to four years in prison. It applies to all domain names around the globe, even those in other countries and ending in suffixes such as .nl or .uk.

Bingo! this matter is not over yet.

In this case, you're quite forgiven :-)

The real question, though, is who do we contact to get this enforced :-)

I actually quite enjoyed our 'neighbour'...

Detective DAS is on the case.

(And I just learned... the UK is making some new internet laws... some of which people find annoying, but I shall see if any of these play in our favour).

InterPol may be the best place to at least try to start... but that's a whole lot of irksome red tape. I rather enjoy trying the great and many faucets of our own government.

Hmmm.... I guess, at any rate, though I cannot find any specific agency responsible on the local scale, anyone with international jurisdiction may pretty much turn the trick. Essentially, anyone cooperating with the international police.

I've sent a request to a certain lawyer that owes Lupinia a favor. If he knows anything, I should know by tomorrow evening, if not sooner.

EDIT: Mr. Gerald Fogg, content writer and founder of the Gavin Project. It's a long story that I don't want to delve into, but the man's job was things like this up until [cut crap and I've asked him and linked him to this topic for reference sake. I'm assuming it's either in public area or locked out to public. It is not inlined.]

Someday, but not today. (In the literal sense, not the figurative.)

I swear, as if "furry yiffs" coming up on my Google based address bar every time I type furry teens out wasn't bad enough. I've been following this thread manually since it started; I just couldn't help until now. (Knowing a lawyer that owes you a trick or two for a lot of free work is a wonderful thing, trust me. Oh, and now is not a good time to start that "scum of the earth" spiel either; at least not about my part-time employer.)

Well, lets just say I am waiting on an email from the British Ministry of Justice, to see what their laws say, and what action can be taken.
