Hello and welcome to my blog. In this blog I will give the Sims 2 community a little understanding of a fraction of what goes on within a paysite. For years players have speculated, sometimes rightly and sometimes wrongly, about the TSR myths and legends. Here I hope to give positive proof on subjects ranging from DDos attacks to sharing information gathered from paypal transactions.
This blog is not defamatory, abusive or threatening.
To be defamatory the contents would need to be ”a false and unprivileged statement of fact that is harmful to someone’s reputation” As some of this blog contains screenshots of actual posts, for reasons of proof, the posters themselves are the ones making the statements. An example being: a screencap of a group of people admitting they have just made a bandwidth attack on another website is different to myself stating that they did so with no proof of the fact. The reporting here is much the same as you would see in any newspaper, If a public figure openly posted in public that he was sharing someones personal information, or attacking someones servers, a newspaper would report this as a general interest to the public providing they had proof of the dirty deeds actually taking place. TSR do not deny anything written here, in fact they posted a full admission on the front page of their website ( in their news section ) This coupled with the fact the posts were made by them in the public domain makes it impossible for them to hold up the defamatory card. The names and personal details of the innocent people they exposed have been blurred by myself.

It’s also worth noting that according to the EULA provided by EA Games for the sims 2, paysites such as TSR are illegal. Electronic Arts Inc state that ‘fansites’ may only operate a personal noncommercial website for the noncommercial benefit of the fan community. That is not my personal opinion, it is what EA wrote and supplied with every game, expansion and addon pack for the sims 2. TSR charge a susbscription of around $50 USD, so in regards to defamation, its like a drug baron suing Mr. Joe Public for calling him a pot head.
