Group id #1080 : Italian Cracking Service

Some questions fo the Italian veterans: according to the scroller in Afterburner [us version] , North Italy Cracking Service was a member/sub-group of ICS then?
Another question: the scroller mentions a member called "Filippetto". Could that be Tiger ? Like another nick?
And the scrollwriter refers to himself as part of "us" - "the godfathers". Does that mean The Godfathers was a subgroup in its own right, or is it mayberather referring to certain core members of ICS?

1) Absolutly .. NO!

2) Tiger's name is Filippo, so yes, it's him.

3) Godfathers is a common term used in italian mafia, it's just a joke, not a sub-group.

1) So the "nics" mentioned as member is a scener, yes?

2) OK cool, will add it as alternative handle

3) But it definitely refers to a certain group of people, as it appears in the memberlist ("members are [...], and us (the godfathers)!") Not a subgroup, but then certain core members, as I suspected.

1) I can ask to some ex-members, but NICS was active in older time than ICS

2) Don't. It's just to say "Little Filippo", probably he didn't choice an handle yet, or it was just a friendly name to call him.

3)As I said it's a mafia word, sometimes in ICS they used other words like Magic Trio because 3 sceners worked together inside ICS, but it wasn't a meaning of sub-groups.

What The Overkiller said and re your other questions:

1) NICS is only a group and not a scener afaik
2) I can confirm too, Filippo is Tiger, so Filippetto would definitely refer to him
3) I presume the guys in ICS would refer to themselves as "The Godfathers" and as The Overkiller said, it is meant to be only a "joke"

3) they wrote "The Godfathers" but you can read it as "The Recrackers"

lol! So you think that the nics in the member list is just a joke too?
Re 3) - I understand, but they put "the godfathers" in the member list, so that is kind of confusing, even for a joke. ;)

C'mon Smasher, don't be so rude. It was Wildcat that gave a bad reputation about recracking, but people like Tiger, Mat, Hitman and Mamasoft were serious

Mamasoft (RIP) was cool, sure. Marco wasn't part of the lameness as he disappeared too soon, before Wildcaz recracking obscenity started.
As for the others I can only say if your HQ is an insane recracker you isolate him or you leave, as a few did. Defending him wasn't serious at all I think.

ICS reputation was really debated back in the day. I have to agree with ZeSmasher when he is saying that the actual ICS HQ was the problem (Mr. Fly and Wildcat). On the other hand, they had really talented people like Mamasoft (RIP) and Tiger who suffered the group's bad reputation.

Mamasoft had his share of bad things done to affect his reputation aswell, like selfattributing tunes stolen here and there. Nobody is without sin.
