    Is anyone aware of the whole story behind this?
    I don't even know who owns WLD, but my impression was always that it was a thriving forum. The anonymous domain registration is valid through July 04, 2017.

    Re: World Law Direct

    They covered a great deal of legal issues and I only looked at threads on Internet crime The link appears to be down right now

    There were some excellent contributors to the Internet threads including somebody who is a member here. He is a Canadian who did a great deal to expose the notorious Pidgeon King scam. I am pretty sure his name is Dave and his surname starts with a "T". If anybody remembers his surname and has his contact details, please ask him to add a comment here

    The lack of moderation made the Internet scam section a complete farce. Profane language and anomous posts from non members who made unfounded allegations about all and sundry turned the online law section into a quagmire. I remember a few idiots claiming that I had made a fortune running a lesbian brothel. They could produce any evidence to back it up but admin made no attempt to set the matter straight. I have not posted there for seveal years but I have read the odd comments from Eagle. Festa and a colleage of his who is known as "Nancette" used to post ad nauseum. I have a feeling that they even got sick of Festa and banned him for a while but I really don't care as I regad it as a section of a forum which has "gone to the dogs"

    Just remembered the WLD member's name was Dave Thornton. I have the greatest repect for him and another member (I think NickSam) speakes of him with a gread deal of respect.

    Hope to hear from you soon Dave as you went through hell and high water for your cause. I have a vague memory of your saying that a French newspaper finally backed you and eventually Canadian authorities stepped in and took Pidgeon King down after six years. It was one of the most rivetting reads in the field of scam busting and scam busters which I have read since being online

    It seems like in this "industry" common sense is not all that common!

    It's been at least 12 months, but I think closer to 15 months since they came back as Legal Junkies. Time gets away from me too quickly now. What I think has been 3 months turns out to be 7 or 8 months.

    LOL, I'm the opposite in this case. I thought it had been at least a couple years until I noticed LRMs post from February 2016 that it was still around.

    Anyway, it looks like the Legal Junkies website transitioned from its old format catering to law students and imported WLD's content sometime between August 1, 2016 and September 3, 2016.
