Any idea why almost all servers are down?

Your computer feeling a lot slower lately? That new program you installed not working? Can't convert a specific file? Looking to buy a new hard drive or dvd writer? Would like some recommendations? Firewalls, latest threats and general P2P security issues are here also.

January started with #mappositivity (MAP = Minor Attracted People) movement on Twitter. Someone in the middle of discussion said that there's child pornography in p2p networks, esp. on eDonkey2000 TVUnderground server (the largest ed2k server). It's down now, as well as others.
Out of 5 always-available servers, which were working back in December and in the first days of January, only ONE is still online.
3 of http://edonkey.network servers are unavailable, as well as the website. TVUnderground server is down.

From TVUndergound website:
7th January 2020

IMPORTANT!

Hello,

It seems someone for some reason has started a smear campaign against TV Underground in twitter. Some random anonymous accounts are claiming TVU distributes child pornography. This is a VERY serious claim and of course untrue. These people provide absolutely no proof tho their claims. Nevertheless, in current times, it seems proofs of such claims are not required and people blindly follow some anonymous guy's claim. This has already caused DDoS attacks and DNS provider dumping us. Again for no obvious true reasons.

What you can do to protect your number one TV website?

Visit the following tweet:

Report it to twitter for spreading false information and answer to all the bots, that they are full of crap!
9th January 2020

Seems like the twitter guy doesn't give up and last night published some mindblowing (as he thinks) details about his accusations.

While it is nice that 20 years into the existance of the ed2k network, this guy found out about it and (oh shock) it turned out some bad people use it to share bad stuff, it is a shame he did not bother to comprehend the workings of P2P and ed2k specifically.

I am sure the actual guy spreading this stuff won't bother to read this, yet I'd like to make a statement to any possible new visitors. I will try to make it as clear as possible.

TV Underground, it's owner (me), it's staff DO NOT host, download, view, spread, facilitate in getting child pornography. Not now. Not ever. TV Underground has been existing for 14 (!) years now and never once before anyone accused us of such horrible things.

Now regarding the ed2k server. Is it possible for some rogue people to connect and make such stuff available to others? Yes, it is. Does it mean that TV Underground or it's staff somehow responsible for it or encourage it? Absolutely not. Can we control what other people chose to make available to the ed2k network? No. Can anyone else? No. If we take down our ed2k server, does it have an effect on these people? No. If all ed2k servers aare taken down, does that? No (google KAD).

All this is publically available information. There are numerous articles on the working of various P2P networks, ed2k included. But, sadly, the person makes no intent to research the actual truth.

Now a bit of honesty. I am actually considering closing the site, because this is simply not worth it. I've invested huge ammounts of time into this site during the past 14 years. I make pretty much no financial gains from operating it. It is all so you, the visitors, the users, can watch TV shows in whatever part of the world you might be. And in return for all this, at the end I am being called nothing less then an operator of a child pornography ring by some idiot. But this idiot collects hundreeds of likes, people are actually calling to the FBI and other law enforcement agencies. Is it all worth it? I am starting to think no. Killing this baby that I've been with almost half of my life will be a great tragedy, but can I risk my own wellbeing and freedom (not only my own, I have a family)? Not really. So if this campaign does not stop, I am afraid it will be an end to all.

So sad... People are just so clueless sometimes and don't use common sense. It's like those who blame gun manufacturers for murders that happen - I'm sorry, but the last time I checked, it was a person that pulled the trigger! (I don't see people suing the companies that make knives after someone was stabbed). Or someone who comes down with lung cancer after 20 years of smoking, and sues the tobacco industry... Or this whole "Me Too" movement that has created such a problem with common courtesies between workmates - after all, I don't dare give a friend a hug anymore since I could be called for sexual harassment! Give me a break people! Use your brain and stop blaming others for things you don't understand, especially if you're the one who did something wrong and refuse to take responsibility for it.

Special note: I don't own a gun and am not a member of the NRA, I don't smoke or drink, and I deal with REAL sexual harassment issues regularly on the behalf of others. But some people are just bitter and would rather spread rumors and inaccurate information instead of acknowledging the truth. Oh, and don't even get me started with the whole "race card" crap where that gets pulled so they can cause a stink and get away with just about anything... even though the non-minority didn't do anything wrong! I deal with discrimination and reverse discrimination issues fairly regularly as well.

Just treat others with respect and courtesy and life will be sooo much better for everyone! :)

Sorry for my rant - but stuff like this just irks me...

I just want to add my support for all the unsung heroes out there who put in hours of effort for the benefit of people they don't even know and will probably never meet. You know who you are.

I was using one, that appears to be dead now and its all I was using for a year or so. TVShows or something? But I tried refreshing my server list (might be an old list) and nothing is connecting.

Is there a server I should be using or am I doing something wrong? Its worked for a long time so I dont know what happened

I've tried adding so many different servers now and each time they will not connect.

Anyone got any links for working servers? I haven't been able to download anything for months :(

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong...

I wonder what's going to happen to eMule at this rate. eMule and Torrent have been my goto for file sharing. I hope eMule finds its way back.

the user numbers going down, no update on emule for the last 5 years :? maybe, if there were ne new version with more security, but so, as long as we are here, it will be ok, but as we become fewer and fewer, I don't think it will be back big

So let hope, we all are safe and sound and keep the good work up and running :D

If we look at the statistics at https://edk.peerates.net/servers/network-historicals , the activity went down until mid of 2017. After that the activity has been quite stable, even if it has reduce a little.
