Rebranding

Spinprofiles was shut down on 21 June, 2010 by Webhosting firm 1&1, [1] because of a profile on think-tank researcher Alexander Meleagrou-Hitchens, son of journalist Christopher Hitchens. Further details were requested but not supplied. The content was moved to a new domain name, Powerbase, which was registered through a different webhost.

WikiSpooks Acknowledgement

SpinProfiles, now Powerbase was a major source of content and inspiration when setting up the WikiSpooks site.
