As you know this mirror was mostly run by me, zillion. I have been running safemode for several years now and reached a point where I do no longer appreciate doing it. The defacing scene is evaluating in such a way that in order to keep up with it you require a full team of people willing to take mirrors. This site is sucking up all my free time, energy and has a negative influence on my personal live. In the early beginnings every defacement notification mail was exciting and always special in some kind of way. Also until a year ago the daily amount of defacements where so low that I *appreciated* all of them. Now every morning I open my mailbox with 100-150 emails. Often defacers mail from hacked systems, send mass hacks in 20 separate emails (in order to try and get a bigger record), send fake defacements, send mail bombs etc etc... it all makes me tired and not want to do this anymore. New cyber crime laws have also influenced my decision to stop running this mirror. Running a defacement mirror without breaking any of these laws (if this is possible) requires a lot of discipline and takes away the fun element. I would like to thank all people who have helped me over the years (especially barre and mystakill) and will do my best to keep this site online and available for the public.
