A summary of activity on the CYFSWATCH site.
Saturday, 24.03.2007, 03:42pm (GMT12)

I am pleased to announce that the CYFSWATCH site has received 304522 visits for the month of March, and the month isn't even over yet.

The phenomenal success of this site restores my faith in the decision I made to host it, because the need for it remains constant.

Other stats tell me who comes to the site, well, not really WHO, but the kinds of people based on originating IP numbers. A little detective work tells me which branches of our society uses this site the most. For example:

The vast majority of you are ordinary people, while I respect you, I'm not really interested in knowing anymore about you because for the purposes of the stats I am keeping, you don’t really figure into the equation. That’s not to say you are not important, you are, you make CYFSWATCH the success it is, and you are a vital component in that, but... well, read on, it will all become clear shortly.

A good number of hits came from the media, which is always a good sign. It shows me that CYFSWATCH is a player in creating the news of the day. The media come to harvest opinions, quotes and maybe looking for another Clayton’s death threat.

Another class of visitor appears to be CYFS and the MSD, a case of them keeping a wary eye on us. or maybe they come to look to see who has made it to the "named and shamed" list, I'll bet this is a lottery for social workers, they probably dream about getting paid gardening leave for an indefinite period.

There even appears to be a few hits, well, more than a few actually, from Parliament. This too is a very good sign. Sue Bradford must be soiling her pants each time she decides to come and take a look at the site. Hello Sue, make plans for life after and MP, cos you’re going to be unemployed again, not even the list will save you!

And are we under Police Investigation? A few hits from the Police means we probably are, or at least, they are watching us. I'll support the boys and girls in blue and wont say anymore about their visits, except, whets up guys? No more porn sites for you to visit?

We are also getting hits from the USA, UK,
Canada and amazingly, a few from African nations. Google appears to really really want CYFSWATCH back, a few of their employees have even called in but hey guys, I'm the host now, your cave in to the Clark dictatorship is *my* gain. Sod off and live with it.

We have also had visits from search engine spiders, these "bots" will ensure that even more and more will come to visit the site over the next few months.

We are also, it seems, doing our bit against Bush's war on terror. The US Homeland Security even sent a "bot" over to check us out, although, tracking that back was next to impossible for me, but I did learn enough about that particular "bot" to determine who sent it. The question is, was the fight we had with the NZ Government to stay online the focus for them having sent the "bot" in the first place? Or was it the Claytons Death Threat?

While I have access to this information because I host the site, I want everyone to know that the information stays with me, I am the only one with access to it, and there is no way I would ever hand over individual IP's to anyone else. The data stays on the server, it is never ever actually stored on my computer, so don’t worry. Everyone’s "identity" is safe. It is merely used to collate data about the types of hits we are getting, which is why I don’t really care about the ordinary persons visit to this site, and while I care about MPs visiting the site, I won’t ever try to trace back an IP to see who it actually is. The success of this site means that such data needs to remain confidential, and it will. I have only ever acted for, and on behalf of, parents, and have their best interests at heart.

I cannot tell who has sent what to CYFSWATCH, so authors of the articles are safe as well; these are sent to CYFSWATCH who posts them. And yes, you would think I had access to who CYFSWATCH is because I can see their IP, wrong. I did see it once, but have since forgotten it. I made a promise to them to protect them from any repercussions of posting items on the CYFSWATCH site, I honour my promises, that particular IP is filtered out of any results I see so they are still unknown to me, that’s the way I want it.

If the number of hits continues to rise for each month the site is online, then I can imagine this site getting a million hits a month by the end of the year, and even that estimate may be on the low side. CYFSWATCH has changed the political landscape of
New Zealand, it opened a Pandora’s Box which the NZ Government tried, and failed, to close. It opened a floodgate of similar sites but none have been as successful as the original CYFSWATCH site, and the site now needs to evolve to stay ahead of the developments taking place sometimes on a daily basis.

I am considering expanding the CYFSWATCH site, to make it more interactive for visitors, offering more than one poll for example, a better feedback system, automatic harvesting and posting of news from other sites and much more. The site will only be down for a few minutes and no presently posted article or story will be lost, all data from the "old" site will be inserted into the new site without anyone having to lift a finger.

The new site will continue to do what it always has one very well in the past, keeping the heat firmly on CYFS and the NZ Government, only, more so in the future.

    Hi there,

    I’m the domain owner of, my previous use for that domain was publishing articles of injustice within New Zealand, I created the site to answer a question,

    Is injustice a present and continual factor in the new zealand justice system(s), I found the answer to be yes.

    and when I had the answer I canned the site, that and I got a $800 bill from my hosting provider for all the trolling the bot traffic was doing.

    During the time the website was in operation, I left the content public, and within 6mths had huge numbers of visits from bots in the USA.

    I found the main reason for them is completely automatic, they’re spiders. Though generally speaking I found most visits were to a page that contained an anti-american nature to it in some way.

    At it’s peak had 986 odd pages, all cleaned from the herald, stuff, tvnz, tv3 websites, including video.

    If this domain is not needed any more and you now have active domains pointing to you location, I wouldnt mind putting it back into use in 3-6mths. I have another question I want answered 😛
