I host rooms for a few people and he befriended one of them, then tried to "destroy" her room. He has been doing this to several people. He returned later and demanded she remove "his template". He has a page with various templates which apparently he got from others, and maybe made some himself. I was in the room and when he started cursing and threatening her I banned him. So apparently he greatly dislikes me, as he never misses an opportunity to leave me a nasty private message or try to put me down if he sees me in a room. In other words, he harasses me whenever he can.
Why was that page on my site? Well Tim moved his site to a new server and decided it would be cool to block anybody he has fought with on ares from the site so they can't download any templates. He then goes and taunts them in rooms showing them they can't access his site.
I decided it would be a good idea to download the templates so people who are blocked could get them. That page wasn't meant for public use, just so I could link to the templates and download them... I forgot to delete it...
Regarding that my site is eating up his bandwidth, well that not true since I checked the access logs and there are very few hits on that page. The hits are probably his. I couldn't even find the page in a google search. Anyway I removed it when Tim left me a message in a room laughing that "he caught me" and "reported me for copyright infrigment". Well for there to be a "copyright" something needs to be registered to you. Those templates are public domain. There is nothing to indicate that Tim owns any intellectual property rights to them. In fact many of them have names of other people on ares who created them.
So now you have the whole story!
Don't really care, he can block any IP for any raeson he wants to. I seggust leaving a highschool style drama to private conversations.
