About those threats
Dear valued SummerHoax participant,
Every now and then, people ask how we handle takedown threats, from people that do not like our crusade against the scammers. We do get some of those, and our providers reply to, well, some of them. We believe in a certain level of transparency (especially when the thing we are transparent about is edu-tainment). So here's a letter from some people that are upset about... well. A lot.

Comments: Abuse and harsment to me
We have forwarded this complaint to your hosting provider.
And here is the response from our wunderbar host's lawyer:
After the failed attempt to take us down using a laughable DMCA, David proceeded to threatened us that he would hire a "hacker" to hack our server and then resorted to DDOSing us while telling us that OVH had taken our server offline. In the end, he paid off the original thread poster $200 to delete the thread and hide the countless complaints against him in the comment section from the Revenact community. For his fantastic actions, he has earned himself a sticky thread on SummerHoax with no chance of removal. To find out more about sir "Light bulb" David, check out this thread.
