I would not read too much into the theory of the Windkeeper rebellion, I suspect this is part of a bigger plan. There have been ‘incidents’ of this type over the last few days.
Firstly, it was claimed, that every single FA had their blog attacked, and links to my blog and the booty were put up. I have not seen evidence of this myself, apart from a small amount of referrals in my stats. No damage was done to any FA downloads and this was done at TSR’s quietest time, so not many sheep would have seen the links. It was blamed on ‘pirate hackers’
Next, within hours of my article on FAIL Sauce, again at a quiet time, another ‘ pirate attack’ This time all the downloads were removed, and links to the booty and my blog were left, the FA was Cyclone Sue, who is semi retired and no longer updating. All files were restored soon after with a handy backup, and no downloaders were upset.
Now windkeeper, another FA, who is not updating, all her downloads were removed, at a quiet time, and again just after my last blog update. Links to the booty and my blog were left. Files are now restored, and each attack seems to be designed not to do much harm to TSR, or upset it’s submitting FA’s.
It is clear to me that this a lame attempt by TSR to ’prove’ that they are being hacked by myself and/or ‘the pirate hackers’ The leaving of our site links was far too obvious, though. Tom might as well have just signed our names. Tom = FAIL.
