Dear Mr. McVay,

I administrate the web site at, and recently received the following E-mail from Matt Giwer.

After seeing his allegations, I became suspicious and took a look at your website, where I discovered his history of causing people doing the type of work we do plenty of trouble.

What should I do at this point to protect our servers/etc. from Giwer and people like him?

Thank you,
Ernest Franic

I note you give it as a reference.

        Are you aware that it carries the material of at least two people,
myself being one of them, over their objections?  These objections have
been publically acknowledged as violations of copyright, and as
spokesman, Mr. McVay has publically stated that the copyright violations
will continue.

        If you will take a careful look at the website, and given the hudreds
of megabytes they like to advertise, one thing should be very obvious by
its absense, "re-printed by permission of."  At the least, this is very
unprofessional behavior.

        I would request USF review it position vis a vis the Nizkor website.
