Yes.

They have done their duty. Things evolve.

It has been shown that reporting fakers to the server people is much more efficient.

In a way bandwidth leaching is similar to a DDOS attack. There was a thread with the reasons here when they decided to stop.

Quote:
The Vampire and related bandwidth tools had been decreasing in effectiveness for quite some time now. In a recent flashmob, we demonstrated clearly that more scam sites could be killed with a few volunteers writing letters, than with many volunteers running bandwidth tools. Times have changed. So, aa419 decided to change to, and discontinued the hosting of the Lad Vampire and Muguito.


From the blog linked on their main page.

Because we're better than that. Our reports to hosters do the job.

I agree B. A. Ware; Muguito and Lad Vampire were fun but they took the fun out of Scam Baiting. I like the personal touch of messing with the mugu's and Oga's! boxer
