That is understandable. I registered at me-dem.org's forums with same nickname.
We took the ME-DEM ftp off public access because I found a lot of my Tolkien research on a Chinese site that was earning money for hosting document files. The woman was making money from my stuff, indirectly. She didn't ask me for permission to take it either- probably used a crawler bot to get the files. Since we don't get a lot of people seeking to use our stuff, we didn't see any benefit to keeping access open anymore. If you register at ME-DEM we could work something out better ;)
