NTBPT website
« on: 28 January, 2011, 10:40:12 AM »
As you may know if subscribed to the NTBPT mailing list the NTBPT were sent a letter before action from Peter Large. In that LBA Mr Large claimed that he intended to contact other websites with a similar grievance. He then sent a request to the NTBPT provider drawing their attention to the accusations he was making asking them if they would pull the plug on the whole website. Once the hosting provider has been informed of the complaint they also become responsible for the words published on a website. The normal industry practise is for the hosting provider to contact their client (NTBPT) to discuss the matter, normally requesting that the specific content in question is taken off the website. The hosting provider will want to be satisfied that there is no case to answer. However some hosting providers will take the easier option and not wish to mediate, and take the cheaper option and disconnect the website from the Internet.

This is has happened to the NTBPT website.  ::)))

If you want to read more about defamation on the Internet and the various stages of how it goes you may find this leaflet very helpful:

As many of you are also supporters of the NTBPT it would be normal for you to want to discuss NTBPT things on here whilst their official forum is down. It’s also understandable if you have strong feelings about what has happened. All we ask is that you hold back from referring to Mr Large or any other council officers in any posts that you make .

We are busy right now, and spending our time cleaning up posts and dealing with complaints made to our hosting company would just mean we spend less time in working for NoToMob things.

So we hope you understand more about what’s going on and hang tight as this little episode unfolds.

Thanks for the info - good to know what's happened, and what is behind it all. Not surprisng really that an 'authority' might try to silence legitimate debate...

One might suspect that, if there was nothing to hide, less time, money and effort would be spent in trying to silence those who may question those activities.

I'm sure that it's only a temporary setback; not the first time this type of thing has happened and it will not prevent continued communication between those dedicated in their opposition to the machinations of this 'Council'
What next - shut down Trafalgar Square? Oh, that already happens twice a week already!

It may even cause them some embarrassment ultimately, so we shall wait to see how things unfold.

Hosts contact details, you know if you want to contact them. They roll over when one little piece of un-proven paper lands on their desk and they shut down the whole server. Totally unacceptable, what is this? Tunisia?

I have tried phoning the host and they aren't answering the phone, but I have found their Twitter name so tweeted them as well.

I hope the webmaster of this site is currently downloading a local copy of the site/forum database in case WCC go after this site as well.

The problem is that T&Cs are rarely actually enforceable, especially click through ones on websites.

Thanks for the news and link.  Sounds familiar, can't do it legally so try to fool those, who should know better (Police Officers) or want a quiet life (web hosts), to do their dirty work for them.  All the more reason to go to the NTBPT events, to keep up-to-date with news!
