    Not particularly "wrong" at this point.
    In my opinion TPB has become so mainstream that it really shouldn't matter if the site's full name is mentioned here.
    But until I'm told that we can change the protocol in handling this particular site, please keep references to the site abbreviated.

    this is all kind of.....pointless

    this tracker is absolutely indestructible; all you need to do is move the site to a new server and you're in business again, every single torrent will still work. these gentlemen have so many supporters that they will never run out of new hosts.

    Lemon wire* was shut down..but unofficially was risen up from the grave by a batch of highly trained monkeys to make it even better...

    lets hope TBP will come back the same way...

    M***N**A was shut down
    T****NT*PY was shut down. (even though it was filled full of porn ads and viruses)
    rom******* gave in to the ESA.
    NDS-**** caved into the government

    and they have not been replaced...

    let's hope that TPB doesn't fade away like it's relatives have








    *names are have been changed, any other names, characters, dates are purely coincidental

    Right, like shutting down TPB is going to stop piracy. What about [censored] or [censored] or, hell, even [censored] was so [censored] good.

    I love censoring myself.

    I'm starting to check the news on my phone more now; I noticed this this morning. Doesn't affect me in the slightest, but it's certainly relatively big news.

    Now I check news more, maybe I should start posting it too. [​IMG]

    The first one only allows you distribute your own content, I think, so I'm assuming it's legal.

    Epic lawl. They should know that for every 1 site they shut down 4 more pop up in it's place.

    Okay so lost an appeal, so? It may look bad at this point, but TPB will never close. The current TPB might, but then a new one will rise and it will go on like that forever.

    So this is just meh news.

    Also lol at people thinking that piracy will now stop or that TPB will die.

    I just realized what TPB is.

    My care level is between I-Don't-Really-Care to I-Care-A-Bit. All I really pirate is music, NDS games, and some software as well.
