Nate Responds To User’s Claims Of Deleting Posts About Hyolyn’s Alleged School Bullying
The online community Nate Pann has responded to a user’s claims that the website blocked her IP address and deleted the posts about Hyolyn’s alleged school bullying.
On May 26, an anonymous netizen (hereafter referred to as “A”) uploaded a post on Nate Pann claiming to be the victim of school violence perpetrated by Hyolyn.
Hyolyn’s agency initially responded to the post by releasing a statement that Hyolyn was planning to personally meet the victim to resolve the issue, to which “A” responded with another post saying that she did not wish to meet with Hyolyn. Later that afternoon, the posts by “A” were suddenly deleted, and Hyolyn’s agency released a second statement that the agency will be taking legal action against “A” for making false claims and defamation.
Someone claiming to be “A” then commented on the agency’s statement and said that her posts were deleted due to Nate Pann blocking the IP address that the posts were made with.
In response, a source from SK Communications, the company in charge of operating Nate Pann, clarified, “The IP address that ‘A’ used [to post] was blocked on May 6 in accordance to the internal policy for sharing illegal promotional posts.” The source continued, “If ‘A’ was trying to upload the post at a PC Bang (internet cafe), she would have succeeded had she moved to a different seat.”
SK Communications also confirmed that the posts were deleted by “A” herself.
