>We've responded to two DMCA notices from Verio, this is the second (see

>first: http://cryptome.org/dvd-hoy-reply.htm). And we use the cases as fuel

>for the controversial info-protection racket. If the plan works, the removed

>doc will get even more attention now. I suspect the Mormons want more

>attention for their homosexual therapy, it could have been one of them who

>sent it to us. The document is widely available, and it was not just on

>Cryptome. Its withdrawal will likely promote it.

>

>Want to help? Go see Google's cache of the doc before the Mormons get to it,

>or if it is not there, post a request for a copy on the Net, or raise cain

>some other way. Send us information on what happens. If you find the doc

>hosted somewhere send us the URL.

>

>Verio has been very good about docs that govs want removed, and have refused

>to shut us down on two previous occasions with that type. Those are the ones

>our nosethumb statement is intended to attract.

>

>If we get a Verio notice about a gov doc, threatening to shut us down if it

>is not removed, then we will give Verio a lot of free publicity, not just

>the diddly kind they seem to like now.
