To deliver web content fast to various parts of the globe you have to have servers close to end users, at least a few per continent. Which we did have as close as in summer 2021. But then hetzner and velia without any court order or something decided that Europe doesn’t need us and this made things slower for everyone living there.
Of course there are thousands other hosting solutions for us but these two were fast and reliable servers for us in last few years but then boom! Do you know what happened?
This is a hard story as it may seem to one like we apologise. We do not.
iMGSRC.RU was established in 2006 as a photo hosting solution for forums, blogs and alike. Many different people came to our platform for various needs and populated it with millions of photos. Anything…
According to Russian internet regulator this picture is fine. However, cybertip.ca is trying to tell us this is “sexual, harmful and/or abusive”. As usual, there could be some story behind this image but cybertip.ca once again provides only a misleading generic notification about this is being sexual. From what is see here is that the liver on this woman suffers.
This is getting completely out of control. Today we received the following email. Google will translate it for you’d desire that.

This is insane. Ok, this can be anything, but sexual abuse. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, INHOPE, which the sender, pointdecontact.net is a member of, knows the story behind this image, but instead of providing the real data they continue to drive the hype train of child abuse. You guys need some serious help. Or a new job.
The next fighter in anti-CP war comes to play and this is Hetzner Online GMBH. They now locked some of iMGSRC.RU services out of their network for allegedly posting child porn which of course iMGSRC.RU never did nor allowed others to do. There never were any court rule or order…
The other day we’ve got a “i follow this little bitch on instagram i would love to fuck her while i smell these beautiful little feet that drive me crazy” comment to some innocent teenage girl photo. Somehwere arount the same time we were routinely emailed by cybertip.ca requesting to delete some CP-like content on iMGSRC.RU which of course happen to be an innocent photo. You can even consider these photos identical for this story.
So, it all started on instagram and you come to us telling it is illegal? These scumbags exists out there, so go hunt them in their lair.
What do you think?
This was expected. Kinda.
At first we tried to work out the situation logically. That failed the RKN said continued adding html pages to their registry of illegal URLs, while any given image from those pages when submitted to them for a check was found legal. All emails we sent…
Well, this was inevitable.
