Oleg,

I have finally got my hands on broadband and decided that I might give online multiplayer a go. So I typed in hyperlobby.com and I think you know what come up.

I don't know exactly what is going on, but it's not pretty. I put this to you Oleg, as I have been a great fan of your sim since pretty much the start. Oleg, If you can tell me here and now that there is no substance to what is written, then since I have to trust someone and that is you, I shall go onto hyperlobby and continue to support you as much as I can.

I have not written this to kick off a muck raking thread and I don't want any body else turning it into such. I am just asking an honest simple question and would appreciate an answer the same.

Just look me in the eye and tell me there is nothing fishy going on http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

PS. Thanks for all your dedication so far.

Cheers!

The real HL is at http://hyperfighter.jinak.cz/

That hyperlobby.com is made by a guy who doesn't like Jiri http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well, thousands of players can assure you that the HL is clean.

Wrong webpage, mate. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

You want this one:

http://hyperfighter.jinak.cz/

That other website was posted by some malcontent.

By the way, 1C:Maddox is not affiliated with HyperLobby. If you would rather stay clear of HyperLobby, then you can use the Ubi.com Gaming Zone game hosting service.

If this is the case, it really is a shame that people go to such great lengths to defame others.

I have two kids and a great work crew. But one thing I have noticed among people is that in a dispute, things and views can become somewhat dissapointing, not to mention bewildering.

I hope Oleg will take the time to confirm this for me as I look foward to getting my butt royally whooped by you more experienced on-liners.

Thanks fellas.

Why must you have Oleg confirm this for you? I don`t know who that guy is on that fake site, but he has serious problems and comes out with serious rubbish that`s, frankly quite unreal. Some people become very angry and tormented for some unknown reasons then post madly - ignore it. It`s the BAD part of the internet.

I`ve been on Hyper Lobby now for 2 years + and I can tell you, over 2 PCs nothing has gone wrong or weird, my PCs not blown up, the Gestapo hasn`t called, Aliens haven`t landed.

In fact Oleg has NOTHING to do with Hl and he`s not the one to demand a response from.

Just D\L the proper thing from the sites the good chaps above have posted and use it with no worries.

He Who Cannot Be Named really is one of the kookiest kooks on the entire internet. Just a short hop from timecube (http://www.timecube.com/) and furry slash yiff barns [no link provided].

Sorry gwanna,I`d recommend thinking a bit before posting.Answer me how could this be true when over 3000ppl fly on hl daily and never had problems with it?

Ask around before you throw on the official tone.

Carguy,

It was not a case of thinking before posting as I have been chewing on this fora week now. I do appreciate all of the input from you people.

What amazes me is that someone can get away with a site that blatently bags HL if that is the case. The thing I probably overlooked is that this is the internet and it appears that it is hard to corner somebody doing wrong on the net (who ever they are). The truth is (as you have probably guessed by now)that I am not one of these full on nerds (no offence) and I can only rely on the info I am given. Kinda like walkin' into a used car lot (once again no offence)((Crikey, what a pain in the butt living in such a politically correct world, actually no offence to any others I may slander or use their name in vane, whatever!)).

Anyhow, I love this sim and appreciate the bulk of this community and their support. I may well join HL and if I do, the main thing I ask is "PLEASE BE GENTLE" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Clint,

What The????

Man, You makin me dizzy with that cube stuff. That just re-installed my faith that the net has opened up a whole new world of loonies. Is that all meant to be serious?

Whoa! Sorry fellas, I think I'll go lay down for a while.

The internet is very much like the unprotected outside world beyond your home. Imagine you open the front door and invite just about anyone to take a walk around your home for free... most people would politely look about and leave. But you can guarantee a few would take a few things with them, stay and not leave or then destroy it for no reason but for the hell of it. You just don`t know what`s going to turn up.

The advantage for the more dodgier people on the net is that they know they can`t be caught, which drives some of them insane!

The FREEDOM of the net is amazing if used correctly and opens up a world of opportunity - but, because of Human nature can also be VERY DANGEROUS.

Yeah, well put Seafire.

Well at the end of the day I don't think I have any world changing secrets on my puter and half the world has probably been in for a peek already without me knowing.

Time for my beauty sleep now, as I must work tomorrow and you should see me with no sleep "ERK!"

Hmmm, just had a look at that thread Clint posted.

Strange...strange stuff.

This guy could be incredibly wise beyond anyone else in this world, beyond all our perceptions...

Or just be a total loon! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

If time cube makes you dizzy then I definitely suggest you not google the furry slash yiff barns anytime soon :&gt;

As Seafire says, libel / defamation law is still pretty ill-defined on the internet, at least internationally between people. GT is absolutely bat-guanno insane about hyperlobby, that's really all there is to the story.

Yes, the author of that "wrong" webpage is indeed a most malicious, noxious and self absorbed individual. Back away slowly and don't make eye contact.
