BitTorrent Tracker Renaming a Village a Hoax?

The investigation found out that under the law of the Russian Federation the final decision on the renaming of settlements and other geographical objects rests with the President of the Russian Federation, which is an event you can imagine how likely to occur. The head of the village Burnt also claims the residents have never received such an offer, though they are glad to welcome it if ever appears. She says that the money would be very helpful for repairing the Russian “directions.”

The recent news on how the BitTorrent tracker TorrentReactor.net had bought the naming rights to the little village in Russia for around $150,000 turned out to be just another prank of the BitTorrent tracker.

After the Russian news site MediaFM decided to dispatch a correspondent to Burnt for investigation, they understood that the tracker lied not only about the claim. In fact, nobody in the village has never even been contacted by the tracker administration. According to the local authorities of the district in which the village is located, the whole story is false and the Burnt’s name has never been bought or sold.

In fact, the village is twice larger in population than the TorrentReactor claimed. It also has much more than mere 3 personal computers mentioned by the tracker, and a single dial-up Internet connection. The authorities corrected that many of the residents have access to the web. Besides, the village has a club (not one you’ve just thought about: the Russian club is something like a conventional center – a tiny one, with one or two rooms only… well, don’t we start a talk about vodka and white bears on the streets), fire department, post office, a number of shops and a school with 50 kids. At least, the residents didn’t live out peddling vegetables to the market and earning $100 a year.

Burnt’s administrator pointed out that though the village hasn’t received any real offers, the residents are welcoming them. She added that the money could be well spent to repair the roads that are always in extremely poor condition, right as if the proverb “Russia only has two woes – fools and roads” would be about it.

Still, even if the offer was made, renaming the village may be very difficult, as though under the country’s law, the initial decision on renaming of geographical features can be made by the gathering of people, the final decision is still has to be taken by the President of Russia. Well, maybe President Dmitry Medvedev will get an offer from TorrentReactor as well, or the residents of Burnt will make a first step after getting all this publicity and file their own offer to the tracker?
