I know *exactly* what you mean. As I built this site when I was 15, I took
the initiative to host and link to some WareZ (shareware I think). These
were remove without discrimination at some stage (the takeover, I suspect);
they were not purged by myself.
I have some compositions of mine (and my friend) on my new domain. I often
fear that the MP3 format waves a red flag (no, not China censorship which
yesterday I came to realise has got some UK domains barred).
