so is Torrentbits, and various other sites. I wonder who's next.

I'm sure they go after most of the sites. They threaten enough legal action against these sites and the operators will shut em down.

they seem to be going after the more "popular" ones, with movie .torrents.
since it's the MPAA, and RIAA that's getting mad about it.

but I doubt it will ever die. Also eMule or eDonkey whatever the name of that p2p proggy got shut down too.

some people are like slinkies; they're completely useless, but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
