LAST CHANCE TO AVOID TOY.harbor

AN "OFFER" FROM etoy (ART GIANT) WAS SUBMITTED
TO THE eToys-BOARD (TOY GIANT) TODAY, TUESDAY,
JANUARY 25, 2000, 10:04 AM PACIFIC TIME.

==================================================
the etoy.CORPORATION and the TOYWAR-crisis-control
-board urge the multi billion dollar company in
santa monica to drop the lawsuit and to pay for
legal expenses of etoy RIGHT NOW! this lawsuit has
to be dropped "without prejudice" to return to the
situation before the case has started.

if eToys wants to avoid a 10 year struggle at
court, on the net, in the world wide press and at
the stock market eToys should now accept the offer
the etoy.LAWYERS submitted. the internet and art
community and the press has lined up behind etoy.
everybody knows that this TOYNAM has to be ended
but many people are willing to fight if necessary.
etoy used its art trademark before eToys was
incorporated. this is a fact and not even hundreds
of thousand dollars spent on aggressive lawyers
helped to cover this reality.

etoy wants its digital territory and art brand back!

on monday the TOYWAR.community launched another
massive TOY-B©MB-CAMPAIGN* to underline the importance
of the immediate reinstallation of www.etoy.com and
the legalization of the etoy.SHARE art concept !

eToys´ share value crashed below its initial price.
value today / 11.12 AM: $19.0625 per unit.

1400 TOYWAR.soldiers are waiting for an answer
from the SANTA-MONICA.battlefield and hope
that eToys knows what a rejection would mean to
all of us... and that we are able to return to
DEFCON 3 quickly.

URGENT! TOYWAR.order

TOYWAR.agent! THIS IS A CALL FOR ACTION.
- THE FIRST REAL TOYWAR.order:
*****************************************

YOU REGISTERED AS A TOYWAR.com AGENT
(LIKE 1345 OTHER BRAVE GIRLS & BOYS DURING
THE LAST FEW WEEKS) TO FIGHT FOR THE
FREEDOM OF ART, FOR YOUR LIFESTYLE AND FOR
THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE DIGITAL GENERATION.

YOU WERE AWARE OF THE FACT THAT YOUR
COMMITMENT COULD LEAD TO VERY DIFFICULT
AND EVEN DANGEROUS SITUATIONS. THIS IS THE
REASON WHY YOU ARE RECEIVING THIS
EMERGENCY ALERT MAIL NOW:

THE FIRST PERIOD WAS TOO SOFT AND BORING
FOR MANY OF YOU. WE HAD TO ALLOW SPACE
AND TIME FOR NEGOTIATIONS! etoy WANTS ITS
DOMAIN BACK! THERE IS NO WAR WITHOUT
DIPLOMATS. ONLY SPIES COULD KNOW WHAT
THE PLANS ARE. EVEN THE BOARD OFTEN HAD
NO IDEA OF WHAT'S GOING ON.

BUT: THE NEGOTIATION PERIOD IS OVER. THE
OFFERS ARE WRITTEN AND WILL BE SUBMITTED.
IT IS TIME TO LAUNCH SOME TOY-MISSILES*

-----------------------------------------
WE NEED YOUR SKILLS ON THE BATTLEFIELD :
-----------------------------------------

etoy.ATTORNEYS will officially inform the
eToys lawyers about the etoy.CONDITIONS for
an "agreement": "etoy will not give up any
trademark rights or any other rights. eToys
will not get any control over etoy.CONTENT
or etoy.ART-PRODUCTS. this lawsuit will be
dropped WITHOUT PREJUDICE. etoy demands
legal expenses to be covered. eToys has to
accept our conditions not the other way
around"

YOU HAVE TO PRESS FOR A DECISION. NOW!

YOU ARE MORE POWERFUL AND IMPORTANT THAN
LAWYERS AND THE PRESS: ACCORDING TO eToys`
STATEMENTS IT WAS THE COMMUNITY WHICH TOLD
THEM TO "MOVE AWAY FROM THE LAWSUIT" ...
NOW WE SHOULD URGE THEM TO GO ONE STEP
FURTHER... IT IS TIME TO DROP THE LAWSUIT!

THERE ARE 1345 TOYWAR.agents registered at
this moment.

THE GIANT WILL BE CONCERNED ABOUT ITS
FUTURE IF 1345 PERSONAL INFORMATION
TOY-MISSILES* ARE LAUNCHED WITH THE MESSAGE:
"CONSIDER THE etoy.CONDITIONS SERIOUSLY!"

eToys CANNOT ESCAPE AGAIN: THIS IS NOT A
WAY TO KEEP THE etoy.com DOMAIN OFF THE
NET! THIS IS OUR LAST OFFER TO eToys! AND
WE WON'T CHANGE OUR POSITION BECAUSE WE
HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO WHAT WE HAVE DONE
SINCE 1994!

TOYWAR.order: LOAD YOUR BROWSER AND GET
ACTIVE! WORK ON THE TOTAL VICTORY OF THE
TOYWAR.community OVER ONE OF THE BIGGEST
E-COMMERCE COMPANIES IN THE WORLD. BE
PART OF A HISTORICAL MOMENT. NO ONE WILL
GET HURT. THIS IS ONLY TOYWAR! BUT IT
AFFECTS THE WAY PEOPLE THINK AND THE WAY
CORPORATIONS WILL OPERATE IN THE FUTURE -
IF WE CAN WIN THIS BATTLE NOW: THEREFORE
YOU NEED TO SEND SMART eMAIL-TOY-BOMBS* :

GO TO THE BATTLEFIELD right now and use
the business toy bomb mission (the sling
icon). REMIND the board members, the ceo,
employees and other people in the eToys
company of the following:

-----example / write your own mail------


dear eToys LAWYERS, EMPLOYEES, BOARD
MEMBERS and SHAREHOLDERS,

i personally urge you to think about the
conditions the etoy.LAWYERS submit. i am a
member of the TOYWAR.army and have been
following this case with serious interest.
more than 1300 special.AGENTS are expecting
to see the etoy.com domain back on the net.
if eToys does not act now we will be forced
to launch another huge pr campaign, consider
further boycotts and to generate massive
press coverage. many of us are journalists,
lawyers and very well connected people who
are able to mobilize many other opinion
leaders as you have seen during this case.

we have restrained our forces because we
wanted to give you a chance ...but now its
up to you ! ACCEPT THE OFFER etoy SUBMITS!
AND TERMINATE A DARK PERIOD IN YOUR HISTORY
BY BACKING OFF!


-----example / write your own mail------


you get etoy.POINTS in reward for your help
(10 points/first msg)! if you are too busy
to log on to TOYWAR.com send a msg from your
mail box.... send it to toby@etoys.com / cc
it to judge@toybomb.com and include your
combat name... to receive the etoy.POINTS!

do not forget this! you registered to
generate impact... not to be a war-tourist.
the more people write - the more clear it is
that eToys must accept the offer our lawyers
submit and to back off now!

DO IT NOW ! THIS IS A TOYWAR.order !

EVERY AGENT WHO DOES NOT RESPECT THIS RISKS
SERIOUS TROUBLES WITH HIS/HER COMMANDER.


the TOYWAR.crisis-control-board

TOYWAR.alert! please check energy level!!!

dear TOYWAR.agent

TOYWAR.crisiscontrol remarked that you got
seriously wounded. the most common reason
is that you accidentally run out of energy.
2 days ago TOYWAR.crisiscontrol transferred
5 etoy.POINTS to your personal WAR.portfolio
as refund for your good training performance.
please use them to buy energy. if you are
already wounded you will need to invest in
TOYWAR.health-care-services.

STATUS REPORT: etoy vs. eToys

the last status conference in la (january 10, 2000) did
not bring any spectacular news. eToys did not drop the
lawsuit and did not even reinstall the dns root entries
of etoy.com... we expected this to happen. we don't need
to hear them talking about a misunderstanding and our
wrong style of negotiation. not at all!

still: some positive developments were reported by our
lawyers. ...etoy is sceptical till we know that eToys
sends other people to negotiate than the ones who tried
to destroy the art work and infrastructure of the
etoy.CORPORATION.

to SPECIAL.agents & etoy.FRIENDS world wide!
***************************************

thank you for your support! you helped a lot! the
e-commerce giant eToys had to move backwards during
the last weeks... step by step.

this is the result of your efforts!

the eToys stock crashed from $ 67 (on the day of the
injunction against etoy) to under $20 (initial price)
this week: pr damage, legal problems, confusion and
agression are not good to sell plastic toys.

you can read more than 100 articles on their fight
against etoy in the TOYWAR.newsroom or in the press
articles scattered on the TOYWAR.battlefiels around
the world...(called: war reports) learn more about
TOYWAR! make conntact to a registred player on the
TOYWAR.front-page... trained TOYWAR.agents will
help you.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

during the last two weeks we got many emails from
people who help to protect the etoy.ART-BRAND.
some of you sent emails with concerns about the
etoy.MEDIA-STRATEGY. others are desperately waiting
for further TOYWAR.orders.

here is our first suggestion after a silent period:

we had to give our lawyers room to get things
together and to convince the court about the fact
that we are not just jerks trying to molest
innocent children with confusing images and
etoy.SHARES. they urged us to stop press
communication and further pressure. the deal
was to do this for 2 weeks! now it's time to
inform you about the situation...

our lawyers did a great job and forced the other
side to understand that we are serious about our
goal to get back the etoy.com domain. etoy
announced a 10 years battle till the end of the
legal system if this is what eToys wants.

at the same time etoy used the attention gap to
established TOYWAR.troops around the globe:
more than 800 etoy.TOY-AGENTS build an permanent
media army of journalists, friends, artists,
security

experts, spies, media activists, djs and lawyers
who observe the enemy 24 hours a day! every move
and promotion statement is scanned and discussed
in our internal TOYWAR.system. eToys needs to
know that there is no chance to cheat or to turn
this into a minor misunderstanding about numbers
and ways to negotiate. THEY WENT TOO FAR. AND
NONE TRUSTS THEM TILL: www.etoy.com is back on
the net and till the etoy.SHARES are legalized!

TOYWAR.com keeps up pressure! there is no reason
to deactivate the tools we established till we
have a clear situation and till the damage eToys
caused is reversed.

on wendsday we transferred 5 etoy.SHARES (etoy.POINTS
in TOYWAR) to every soldier (5% of the 64.000
TOYWAR.shares). to reward beta testing and solidarity.
(check your TOYWAR.portfolio !)

---HOW CAN YOU HELP ON THIS LEVEL?---

... we enter the war of nerves ...

don't believe the propaganda! it only looks like
there is no war anymore! the etoy.com domain is
still on hold. nothing really happened.

but stay calm. we don't need to drop atomic
toy-bombs at the moment. we don't want to destroy
our attorney's work. the enemy just has to know
that we are still prepared.

that's the mission at the moment:

*YOU HAVE TO OBSERVE eToys AND REPORT THINGS IN
YOUR PERSONAL TOYWAR.briefcase or by using the
MEDIA-TOY-BOMB tool (marked with the etoy.SAW logo)
INFORM YOUR PERSONAL TROOP AND MEDIA-TOYS ABOUT
YOUR WILLINGNESS TO FIGHT IF THERE ARE FURTHER
PROBLEMS CAUSED BY eToys.

*YOU HAVE TO BUILD A RESISTANCE PAGE AND (OR IF
YOU ALREADY HAVE ONE: ) UPLOAD IT TO THE
TOYWAR.battlefields. there are already more than
250 resistance pages out there: telling the story
of this lawsuit and informing people about TOYWAR.com.

*WE ALSO NEED ALL THE ONLINE PRESS ARTICLES
PUBLISHED ABOUT THIS TOPIC (YOU FIND PRESS
UPLOAD BUTTONS ON THE BATTLEFIELDS AS WELL).

you get etoy.SHARES in return for all those activities.

BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT MISSION IS:
the TOYWAR.army has to keep up direct pressure
till we know that the other side is really
dropping this lawsuit and not just talks about it!

THEREFORE WE CALL YOU TO SEND MESSAGES TO eToys
AGAIN: TELL THEM TO REINSTALL THE etoy DNS
IMMEDIATELY, TO LEGALIZE etoy.SHARE AND TO FIRE THE
RESPONSIBLE PEOPLE WHO THOUGHT THEY CAN JUST
BULLDOZE OTHERS FROM THE NET!

we should all let them know that we are prepared
to attack them if they try to manipulate the
situation! otherwise they think you turned away
after eToys offered to reduce pressure.

TELL THEM THAT YOU DON'T ACCEPT PROPAGANDA!
JUST FACTS! USE THE BUSINESS-TOY-BOMB FUNCTION
ON TOYWAR TO SEND THIS MAILS AND GET SHARES
(etoy.POINTS in the us) IN RETURN FOR GOOD MESSAGES.
YOU FIND THE TOOL ON THE OFFICIAL BATTLEFIELDS.

please: don't mess around. just tell them that you
are ready to fight if they don't stop this lawsuit
now.

WE ARE PRETTY CLOSE ! HELP US PROTECT THE
etoy.BRAND AND BECOME A SHAREHOLDER !

thanks for your services!
signed: TOYWAR.crisiscontrol / etoy.BOARD

ps: more comfortable fighting now possible!
new battlefields added. discover further
functions & tools (f.e. TOYWAR.radar!)

after a 7 days beta test period with pioneers
TOYWAR.com is now prepared to accept further
agents. outsiders can apply by asking registered
players for access (on the front page).

further TOYWAR.cooperation

hi there!

the response to our request regarding the TOYWAR.actors was overwhelming!
29.03.00: between 10pm and 02am the etoy.CORPORATION selected & recruited
4 brave and good looking TOY.soldiers for the documentary shooting: 1 girl and
3 boys finally did a great job. under extreme weather conditions and outfitted with
etoy.BUSINESS-SUITS, TOYHEADS and SPECIAL TOOLS they operated a
50 ton crane, protected etoy.TANKS and supervised the loading of the
etoy.HELICOPTER at the harbor of basel.

we thank all of you for the massive support... it is exciting to see how many
TOY.agents are ready to infiltrate politics and culture within hours. unfortunately we
could not work with all of you... some agents heard from this action too late, others
were not able to reach the area in time. an emergency situation lead to this
experimental partnership.

***********************************************************************
LATEST OFFER: BECOME AN etoy.SHAREHOLDER AND CO-OWNER BY
WELDING etoy.REALITY IN MANHATTAN (BETWEEN NOW AND APRIL 26)!
"**********************************************************************

since the cooperation for the documentary was so satisfying we decided to look for a special
steel/welding team or person in the TOYWAR.community. the etoy.CORPORATION
is preparing for a special hardware operation in manhattan (exhibition opening on april 29 -
closed on may 10 2000). time frame for the production is between now and the 26th.

SECOND ORDER

as usual: swallow this email after reading!
*******************************************

soldiers on leave, etoy.AGENTS !

THE CRISIS-CONTROL-BOARD NEEDS TO INTERRUPT YOUR HOLIDAY FOR
ANOTHER TOYWAR.order!!!

TOYWAR.com crisis control gets nervous! DEFCON 1 again!
we do not have time to spell-check this email...
----> EMERGENCY! WAR!

the etoy.BOARD was just about to prepare for a huge
TOYWAR.parade and to award the TOYWAR.heros with etoy.SHARES
(total amount: 30.000 units / value today: 145.000 $ !) as
the TOYWAR.board found out that there are problems with the
installation of the etoy.DOMAIN.

the parade has to be postponed till www.etoy.com is online.
instead 2 shares / points (soldier's pay) were transferred to
your account to buy new energy (health care center on the
battlefield! / with one point you can buy energy for the next
week... if necessary the crisis board hands out more points
later)! remember: TOYWAR.heros who write smart mails and have
good ideas or AGENTS who upload TOYWAR.hymns, resistance sites
and war reports become immortal and don't need to buy energy
in the future! they will even get additional shares and become
...richer than the richest!

THE ORDER:
***********
TOYWAR has a problem: its called network solutions (NSI /
symbol NSOL, traded on nasdaq / already on the way down)
...they don't want to reinstall the etoy.com domain!

ONE WEEK: NOTHING HAPPENED.
NOT EVEN A MESSAGE FROM NSI!

to "wired news" NSI said ...as long as they do not have an
order from the court they will not do anything to put etoy.com
back on the net.

THIS IS BULLSHIT! THE REMOVAL OF THE etoy.com DNS ROOT ENTRIES
IN DECEMBER WAS ILLEGAL! THE JUDGE DID NOT SIGN ANYTHING RELATED
TO THE etoy.DOMAIN! etoy WAS TOLD NOT TO OPERATE THE WEBSITE (!)
www.etoy.com (till the situation is clear) BUT THE etoy.EMAIL
AND OTHER RELATED SERVICES (like broadcast.etoy.com) WERE NOT
INVOLVED!

NSI DID NOT HAVE AN ORDER TO PUT etoy.com ON HOLD! BUT NOW THEY
NEED AN ORDER TO INSTALL OUR DOMAIN NAME WE PAID FOR! THIS IS
JUST RIDICULOUS.


WHO ARE THEY? OR BETTER: WHO PAYS THEM FOR WHAT?

LOTS OF PEOPLE WANTED TO SUE NSI EARLIER. BUT etoy COULD NOT
HANDLE A 2 FRONT WAR BEFORE eToys DROPPED THE LAWSUIT AGAINST etoy.

eToys which is responsible for the whole mess would have been more
than happy to see etoy fighting against someone else. so etoy
concentrated on eToys (aggressor no. 1).

but now they capitulated! etoy forced them to send a fax to nsi
with the clear message to reinstall all the etoy.SERVICES!
etoy.LAYERS cc of this fax.

but we still do not find our domain! this is why we call you to
generate massive pressure against NSI and to let eToys know that
they better don't do dirty deals with NSI !


MESSAGE : THE TOYWAR.army IS STILL READY TO FIGHT AND SENDS MORE
EFFECTIVE TOYBOMBS TO ALL THE INVOLVED AGGRESSORS. THEY SHOULD
NOT MESS WITH TOYWAR.agents.

THIS SHIT NEEDS TO STOP!

one week ago 1400 soldiers successfully forced eToys to accept
all the
conditions the etoy.LAWYERS submitted (more than 3000 TOYWAR
mail-toy-bombs exploded). eToys accepted within a few hours under
the pressure you all produced..but still: NOTHING HAPPENED WITH
THE DOMAIN!

the eToys share value crashed to under 16 dollars a share (its
still down). TOYBOMBS really hurt the pr guys and make the ceos
sweat! thats why we need to use this legal weapon again.


------------TOYWAR.soldiers ASK NSI & eToys--------------------

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE?

DOES NSI HAS A BACKSTAGE AGREEMENT TO KEEP etoy ON HOLD AS LONG
AS POSSIBLE? DOES eToys PAYS FOR THIS? WE ALL KNOW THAT NSI HAS
NO REASON TO KEEP etoy OFF LINE IF eToys AGREED TO PUT etoy
BACK ON THE NET! NSI DOES NOT HAVE ANY BENEFIT FROM SUCH A
STUPID THING! NSI NEEDS TO BE CAREFUL! ITS NOT A REAL PROBLEM
TO LET ONE OF THE 46 TOYWAR.lawyers FILE A LAWSUIT! AND 1500
AGENTS ARE WILLING TO SUPPORT SUCH AN ACTION WITH MONEY,
CONNECTIONS, AND THOUSANDS OF EMAILS.

NO COURT EVER TOLD NSI TO PUT THE etoy.DOMAIN ON HOLD.

NSI SHOULD STUDY THE eToys HISTORY, THEIR SHARE VALUE, THE
STRUGGLE IN THE MEDIA AND THE THINGS THEY SAID TO THE PRESS. WE
ALL KNOW THAT IT WAS JUST A QUESTION OF TIME THAT THE USERS
LEARNED HOW TO TEACH GIANTS WHO BULLDOZE AND JUST DO WHAT THEY
WANT TO WITHOUT RESPECTING THE RULES OF THE NET! NSI THINKS
THAT IT IS POWERFUL & SAVE ... BUT THESE DAYS ARE GONE!

THE ABUSE OF POWER IS DANGEROUS. TOYWAR.com IS MORE THAN HAPPY
TO SET ANOTHER EXAMPLE.
