You've Got Post WebMail!

This is sad. I've read earlier that GMail nerds were flooding/attacking YouveGotPost all because they offer more space. Email nerds should get a life and go outside and play with the sprinkler.

:crazy:

Sorry everyone, it sounded far-fetched to me. I posted this on another forum and one of the members said it was a scam and that many Neowinians figured it out from the beginning.

I just read the mainpage post regarding YGP, sorry I doubted you LOC.

It sounds like this YGP was a very small company....I assumed it must've been big to offer what they did. Why on earth would they think they could offer that much in the first place. Even Gmail will get knocked back eventually. I mean if a service has say 1,000,000 user and say only 10% of them fill up their entire 1gb of storage, that's 100,000 x 1gb = 100,000 gigabytes...nearly 100 terabytes. The cost to maintain that much storage would be astronomical. Even this is just a conservative estimate.

I agree, it's very illogical and that's why I was positive it was a scam.

I would not go as far as saying it is a scam. Mabey they just did not realize what they were getting into. Any bloke can set up a server or website these day's. You never know.

official wire is wrong there was no attack by gmailers, basically here's wut happened mostly

LOC finds out about this email service called You've Got Post offering 1tb of space, and no attachment limits sounds awesome, asks if he can post here about it

Many, I including read about it and are overjoyed to hear of such a thing though suspect it isn't too legit, posts go up about it around the web

I myself along with probaly 76 other users find we can't attach very large files (over 40mb) by saturday, wondering what the deal is we ask

All those who ask accounts are deleted all of the sudden by saturday night, o btw the moderator, Amy Jackson keeps calling the owners "the big cheese" and refuses to refer to them by name or say any info on them

So anyways she deletes tons of peoples stuff ****ing them off, this is when it gets ugly, probaly over a hundred people just start making aco****s and forum accounts just to get back at her for not listening and deleting them, she deletes the accounts nearly as fast as they are made

Sunday Morning the forum is gone, so most people switch to emailing her their concerns, even those totally polite are deleted, that's when major spamming started, Amy relizing that they would soon run out of hard drive space, reduces the space several times, till finally stopping at 20mb, and in the process deleting all those over it

So my guess is this whole thing was a scam to get free advertisement, and it worked, u should all feel used

People are sometimes so thick.

If you read different forum posts AND the official News posts you'll

see that they originally gave 1 tb or space in the beginning and that INCREASED

IF you needed more.

Because of some stupid idiots that support G-Mail (probaby google itself), an email provider

that scans your emails and inputs adverts into them, they raided YGP (you've got post.com) and

registered ALOT of commonly used email addresses, thus stoping people from registering, AND sent

large files.

They SAY incremental. Dont say it's a scam until you've tried it out. Sitting on the throne saying what you

'think' is right and wrong is not alright until you've tried something out and obtained proof.

ALL MODS TELL YOU THIS.

There are ALOT of unlimited space email providers out there, just using 2 GB sounds cool.

The people who did this to ruin someone's service should be banned from their forums AND from Gmail.

GOogle are probably feeling the glory that they have some idiots supporting them.

I seriously doubt that Google had anything to do with what happened.

"Oh look a competitor, let's destroy them, we are the ever loving Google, no one will think we did it!"

No, I don't think so. More like a few people who didn't like what was going on and decided to take matters into their own hands.

Point of correction, the initial intent of said users was _Never_ to harm the server. I have read through the complete forum at which this whole mess started, and there was never anything saying that they wanted to hurt the system. Also, about an hour ago, I tried to sign up for the service at YGP, and ALL matter of random strings of letters and numbers, and they were _all_ suspiciously "Reserved"... AND I was made fun of by, what seems to be, the _only_ tech support/webmaster/IT the site has. I was very disappointed. Kind of like I am very disappointed at the way that the information here somehow got skewed in transfer... I am currently awaiting a reply on why I can't sign up for this email service, but after this support person made fun of my name "Lunis Neko", they disappeared and have made no reply, despite their prompt previous replies. I will post a copy of all emails sent back and forth on request. Also, apparently YPG's mother company is MPC, whose main site happens to be officialspin.com. And, on this officialspin.com, they have all of 5 "press releases" on thier site (that I can find), 3 of which are related to YPC. And, the "rating" on each of these "press releases" is a clean 5.00, despite the fact that I gave it a 1, after which it showed 3.00, then reset itself back to 5.00 after about an hour, roughly. Also, YPG has had a history of making a mountain out of an anthill... Threatening to sue a certain webmaster for using "You've Got Post" on his personal web site as the heading for one of his pages, despite the fact that "You've Got Post" is actually famous because of AOL UK, who says "you've got post" instead of "you've got mail"... Just trying to spread another side. Listen if you will, ignore me otherwise, I don't really care.
