For shutting the site down. That was one of my preferred torrent sites for several years. Grrr!

Then the message that comes up on the board should've actually said that they were shut down if that's the case.

I just checked out the site and they said it was voluntary.
I think seeing what happened to Megaupload and others made them not want to have the same thing happen to them. Can't say I blame them. Pretty sure if the feds weren't hot on everyone's tails right now they'd still be open.

Yeah they didn't want all their assets seized probably. I think offshore sites are going to be the norm from now on.

I felt the same way when suprnova.org went legit. They might as well have shut down. Who the fuck wants public domain torrents?
