The Alldas.de Web site, which archives copies of Web pages that have been digitally defaced by online hoodlums, announced Monday that the founder of the site would be retiring and the site moving to a new domain. In an interview with CNET News.com, founder Stefan Wagner said that dealing with system administrators who blamed Alldas.de for their defaced sites and denial-of-service attacks launched by the petty online criminals made the labor of love quickly lose its blush.

    "All this combined with seeing my social life flow away can be pretty frustrating," he said. The announcement that the founder of the last major defacement mirror, as such sites are known, will retire because of "total burnout and frustration" raises the specter that the annual increases in online vandalism may lead to the demise of those groups that chronicled the phenomenon.

    Though Alldas.de has temporarily shut down, it will publish again from the first week of March after a move to the domain name Alldas.org. The site will be run by two other staff members and, Wagner hopes, many more volunteers.
