    Looking forward to the @posterous engineers stopping by the Archive Team channel when we turn the downloaders to 11 now.

  3. @agarwal Can you delay the shutdown 30 days? Is that unreasonable?

  5. Posterous (@agarwal) and friends - pretty simple. We worked with your guys as best we could to do a single duplication of posterous.

    Posterous (@agarwal) - the problem is, the sheer amount of accounts you're deleting are more than can be downloaded in 60 days.

    Posterous (@agarwal) - Please make it 90 days - delay the shutdown one month, and we can head off our downloads, get the backup done.

    Posterous (@agarwal) - The problem is, if the deadline passes, every single account we didn't back up, gets deleted forever.

    Posterous (@agarwal) - So now you tell me what we're supposed to do - let 600,000 blogs get deleted, or try and get the most?

    Posterous (@agarwal) - Twitter knew they were going to delete Posterous when they bought you - they waited a long time to let this be known.

  7. Posterous (@agarwal) - So if we're going to talk about being an "adult" about things; adults keep people informed, help make things right.

    Posterous (@agarwal) - So, how does a 30 day delay on the final shutdown before it goes to "download only" sound?

    Posterous (@agarwal) - May 1st. Day of freedom, worldwide. We'll have long backed up Posterous by then. Twitter can move on. Sound good?

    Posterous (@agarwal) Whoops! June 1st! May 1st will just be the start of the final 30 days, when we all hold hands and remember Posterous.

  13. @agarwal @jf Things are heating up in the last 5 days of uptime. Even two dedicated boxes weren't enough for the amount you're shutting off

    When @Twitter bought @posterous, they knew day 1 they were going to delete it. If they'd said so, @archiveteam could have worked then.

    To this day, @archiveteam continues to get people saying "What? Posterous is closing?"

    tracker.archiveteam.org/posterous/ is in effect. 1.3 million Posterous blogs (not banned or spam) left to download. All public access gone in 5 days.

    This would be a really, really, really good time for you to start an archiveteam warrior aimed at Posterous.

    Posterous has decided that they are NOT going to the prom with us and they ARE breaking up with us and they've blocked thousands of hosts.

    I will always remember @agarwal, the classic case of the silly valley deluded tin king, selling you out at the first opportunity.

    Do you know why posterous is REALLY being deleted? Ask @agarwal - he knows and I do too. Hint: money and liability fears.

    P.s., stop calling yourself the CEO of a company shutting down... That's like calling yourself the captain of a bathtub in a junkyard.
