of course if mphq where hosted on attilas hardward would that give him the
right to take it down (MLs, SVN,...) with a "oops guys i have a bad day"
message ?

or do you think its ok if source forge or gitourious did that on their

The responsible thing to do is to post a message like
"I am leaving this project and will stop running fate as its on my hardware
 as soon as its moved elsewhere or if noone does that then in a week"

Its perfectly fine if a admin is busy or has a bad day or a problem with his
job, familiy or otherwise and is unable to deal with things in that time be
that a day or a month but its IMHO totally unacceptable to intentionally
sabotage/deface project pages like this no matter whos hardware and software
it is.

That said i of course see your point i just think it doesnt justify what he
did  ...
He could just have left it running for a few days for us to put it up
elsewhere and update DNS.
