Wow, what a weekend! Let’s sum up:
Next, Dan Vado, after being contacted by this site, responds that this permission wasn’t written by anyone at SLG.
Dan posted a response at the Z-Cult site, which caused the admins to temporarily remove the thread (it’s back now) while they investigated why two supposedly official SLG representatives were contradicting each other.
Now, after discussion between the two parties, Serj, the Z-Cult admin, has posted an explanation. The person who sent the permission message was a freelancer with SLG. He had previously, some months ago, sent a message requesting removal of the torrents that had been confirmed as official, so the admin assumed that in this case, he was still speaking for the company.
Dan Vado responded to Z-Cult as follows (full quote in link above):
We never asked him to make a statement about removing the ban. … [NAME REMOVED] obviously wrote the statement himself. I’m not certain why he felt he had the right to make a statement on our company’s behalf without contacting me. I’m sorry if you came out looking bad on this as I do believe you were acting under the impression that [NAME REMOVED] was sending you something on our behalf. …
I’ll be issuing an amended statement on our blog and news site and I will be sure to mention that you posted the SLG statement under the honest assumption it was from us. As for the lifting of the ban, just so you can come away from this with something, you can go ahead and make our stuff available for download. I am not certain what our digital plans are going to be in the coming year, so I may come back and ask you to drop them again.
Glad to see that it all worked out with some communication. And I applaud Dan for allowing them to continue to see what happens. Thanks to Serj for responsibly investigating, and for keeping me updated.
Update: Dan apologizes to everyone.
