So the email I received from workload confirms my fears, they’ve deleted about 26 Gigs of files with the following message
workupload.com 10:58 (6 hours ago) to me

Polite and too the point, blunt even.
Will I be expecting a knock at my Cyber-door ?
Many many thanks for the supportive messages. I’m not out to make profit just to make people smile and think “I’ve not heard that for ages. I’ll have a listen. Oh, it’s a bit crackly, must be from the original vinyl, I know I’ll download a pristine MP3 from a music store or buy the re -mastered box set that’s it’s on at a £100, it was that good!”
But , no , the popularity of this place has been it’s undoing. (again)
A report from 2013, released by the European Commission Joint Research Centre suggests that illegal music downloads have almost no effect on the number of legal music downloads. The study analyzed the behavior of 16,000 European music consumers and found that although music piracy negatively affects offline music sales, illegal music downloads had a positive effect on legal music purchases. Without illegal downloading, legal purchases were about two percent lower.
Mmmm, Must be the box set compilers jealous of vinyl music collectors who have rare gems
First Zippyshare got blocked in the UK, next Mega.NZ didn’t like the stuff and blocked me. Now, workupload with out any warning. Worrying times.
Mediashare is still alive, I have 10 Gig of space to play with which is currently 99.5 % full. Not a way to run a blog this size.
Some suggestions before I get that knock on the door ?
