www.wildwestrocks.com is gone. . .
Sadly this past Thursday, May 31st, someone, claiming to be myself, made the request to my internet service provider (Yahoo) to close the Wild West – www.wildwestrocks.com.
So at this time the Wild West is gone. I believe I still have the domain name, but who knows. Parts of the site are backed up. In some respects as I am shifting gears from the Bernie Torme/ GMT Project, which consumed much of 2006, to a focus on local shows and talent (The CD and the shows at Barney McNabbs), it is good that the site get a spring cleaning.
Regarding Yahoo, they are and were terrible offering no apologies or any concern regarding the identity theft issue or the demise of my site – three years of blooming work!
For anyone who visited that site, it could be seen that it was a labor of love and it is sad and frustrating that it is gone and Yahoo can offer nothing. I do concede that backups were not routine at the Wild West. I have to conclude that I stepped on somebody’s toes somewhere for them to go to these lengths.
Anyway, stay tuned regarding the new Wild West site and yes the CD project I have been rumbling about will happen!
And to the idiot who did initiate the request to Yahoo, if there was such a request – f you.
I think this phishing page had something to do with your website shutdown;
hmmm I sadly know nothing about that page. Do you have any other details about what was on that page(?) or how it got online?
Further could you elaborate on what that something was? How did a page lead to the website being closed? Are you saying that Yahoo thought I was phishing?
Inquiring minds want to know. . .
