The Yes Men, impersonators who have dissolved the WTO, among other stunts, released YesIWill! last year in response to the WTO's attempt to shut down the gatt.org web site. I was checking in on the program today, and was disappointed to see it hadn't been updated any.
Then I found out it's because it's been renamed: Reamweaver.

dhartung doesn't believe in Security through Obscurity. But I sure hope publicizing this nifty little toy doesn't somehow lead to its disappearance ... do we want to continue with this thread?

You mean this kind of publicity? That link is actually regarding YesIWill, back in November, but a Google search for it by anyone interested(like a copyright holder), returns Reamweaver as first match. Reamweaver itself gets over 7000 hits at the moment.

Considering the size of the companies these guys are targetting, if they were going to get taken down, it pretty likely would have happened by now. The RTMark site has a whole section devoted to the press Reamweaver and gatt.org have received, including their responses to various C&D letters received.
Seems to me these people want to be seen. That's the whole point.

You wouldn't post it on the internet if ou didn't want people to see it.
