Natalina! Nice to see you here. But I can't seem to access the any mirriors of this website... I always get a 500 error.
How is a site which is little more than a list of mirrors a "reactionary site"?
It's not a "little more". It attacks the site owner, and other sites...not a mere list. Of course, these allegations probably have some basis, but they are not an NPOV link. -- Natalinasmpf 8 July 2005 13:48 (UTC)
Still, though, "reactionary?"
Seems very inappropriate --Cruci 8 July 2005 20:00 (UTC)
Not really. See, I had suspicions Al-Faqih might not even own the site, and clearly those sites are dedicated to attacking his reputation, whether those attacks have basis or not. Hence, not POV. We label the external links the same for global warming. -- Natalinasmpf 9 July 2005 04:26 (UTC)
Does this site still exist? Everything I hear about it comes from 2005. I'm beginning to think this site was only used to co-ordinate the July 7th bombings, and then was discontinued. Xaxafrad 02:31, 17 June 2006 (UTC)
- Excuse me, but honestly, when I saw this article I was thinking "does wikipedia have articles on forums as well, now? In that case, there's like a billion other forums to start articles for." I think articles for forums either should not - or should - be included. But I dont think it's really necessary (or encyclopedic). - 220.127.116.11 11:31, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
- Well, al-Faqih's forum isn't just any forum. Or rather, it wasn't. It has been shut down by the Law. BTW it had numerous aliases. I'll come back to this. LDH 05:24, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
I've brought the article up to date, and organized the references, deleting the dead references to the forum itself.
Are we sure that SOFIR is Israel-based? I know Haganah has a dot-il URL, but still...
