Ok, so I understand that Matt isn't investigating MyBitcoin anymore for some reason... Has anyone at LEAST called that Leaseweb host to see what the truth of this matter is? Seriously, we could all rest a lot easier if we all knew whether they took down the site for some legal reason, or if the owner of the site took it down themselves...

If they shut it down due to lack of funds because the guy didn't pay, then there's a chance that we could throw down $20 and get all of our money back.

Seriously folks.

I really wish this was the case for people who lost funds at MyBitcoin, but is an EXTREME violation of policy and privacy to release data that is the "property" of one party to another. (Regardless of the actual owners of individual Bitcoins and wallets, the data on any rented server belongs to the leaseholder.) All this would do is secure a deposit for a clean VPS or dedicated server at LeaseWeb.

I'm not saying break into their privacy. I'm saying: "Hey Mr. Webhost... The guy who ran this site disappeared and didn't pay for this year's hosting. Here's $20, put the website back online for a week so people can rightfully get their money out of their system." No personal information required, just get the site back online.
