One of the largest online communities in the world, the WELL sponsors conferences held by
many non-profit organizations. Said Mark Kanter of Solid Oak Software, explaining their
decision to ban the WELL, "They are one of the most disgusting servers out there. They don't
monitor their users, and they allow pornography." No explanation has been given as to why
the WELL was unblocked in December.

two MoJo reporters wrote to Solid Oak to follow up on the story of
CYBERsitter blocking the Peacefire site. They received an
from "The Terminator " accusing them of
"harassment" and warning them not to contact Solid Oak again.
