No mention of Gowenna's death? --- Master of Files was not the major releaser, at that time or at all, Maxaiqa released more than anyone, and many others released more than Master of Files. Master of Files moderated the forum. Simon Moon looked after administration of the site.
Master of Files' administration rights over the mainpage were equal to that of all other "releasers".
This isn't particularly clear on the outcome. Was SimonMoon ever charged with anything and if so was he found guilty? If yes, then what was his sentence? If not, did he try to take a case against the government? Also, some mention needs to be made of the donation controversy (where there was widespread speculation he skipped with the donation money) even if it turned out to be untrue...

Looks like not much came after it since the Site is back, and by the Looks of it with its former Crew.
Someone with more details should mention the "Gowenna" hoax.
-it's already been written about and reverted many times, since there's no proof. The only person who really knows is SimonMoon.
- anything to do with SR and SimonMoon is, and has always been, shrouded in mystery. There's no proof that "Gowenna" died, or that she even existed, yet it could have happened. She was allegedly Canadian, and so is SM's current wife. Coincidence? Perhaps, but again, no proof of anything. Did he take donation and Lik-Sang/Google advertisement money? Maybe, maybe not. Nobody ever saw a bank statement. Fact is he got busted, but how exactly, no-one knows, he never got convicted. A lot of mystery, and a lot of arguments because of that. MoF and some others left because trust was broken, and the same apparently happened when the site reopened. Fact is, nobody but Christian Riesen (I can use his real name, since he never hid it himself) knows what really went down with that site. And since he has never shown proof to positively deny all the allegations, this little internet saga will probably always remain a mystery. If you ask me though, i think Gowenna was an alias of SimonMoon, I think he made more money from the site than he claims, and I think he may have taken some of the donation money. I don't think SimonMoon is a bad person though, he's just very bad at clearing things up, part of his character I guess. Still, he should not be allowed to edit this page at will, since he's clearly not a neutral point of view.
Most of those edits you undid were not done by him. He wouldn't add a bunch of stuff to this article because he'd rather it didn't exist at all. The only thing he's tried to do is keep out the worst speculation and advertising by other sites in the links section. The investigation is still on-going. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 03:47, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
All the edits i undid were done by him, since i merely put back the article as it was before his last major edit, compare the 2 versions and you'll see. He reworded and altered paragraphs, that's not just removing spam. If he wasn't such an international man of mystery, this article could be written properly, instead of having all those "maybes". Besides, whether he likes it or not, this is an internet encyclopedia, so the world's biggest ever edonkey website should be mentioned on it. 18.104.22.168
WrittenExpert is not SimonMoon, although most of the edits by that person are correct. You undid all of that person's edits. SimonMoon mainly edited by deletion. I don't know what maybe's you're talking about. The article will never be written properly because the only people who know the truth are not "neutral" and not interested in adding information to the article. MOST of the speculation is wrong, but people are more interested in that than the truth. Virtually no one will defend SimonMoon and if he didn't edit the article it would be full of speculation and rumour. Just look at the history. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:15, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
I would like to confirm that I am not "WrittenExpert" and found those edits very good, as they were only making the article better not worse in any form or way. Next all I was doing was removing blatant lies and speculations that have no citations or links. The idea of this page is as far as I am concerned to display facts, not fiction. Also this is a page about something I was involved in, not about me personally. Since there is nobody who can give more details than me, this is the most "NPOV" you are going to get on this. And if it was up to me alone, this page would not exist in the first place. --Simon Moon 16:36, 3 November 2007 (UTC)
It's up again
-it's not "up," nor has it been up for that long. The current page is nothing but a holding page with very old data. It's not being updated and it's not functional. The article is up to date, unless you want to say there's a non-functional image of an old version of it online..
