    On May 31st, police raided the offices of The Pirate Bay, one of the world's largest BitTorrent sites.

    I don't think this one will stick. No earlier legal threats have led to anything. The fact that they closed down the Pirate Bureau is just sad. It's a site for debate, nothing else.

    Now where will I get my pr0n... :dead:

    yay, politics :p

    They'll be back in about two months I reckon. It's not the end of the world, it's just unlucky for whoever all of TPB's users hit next (TPB has been known to peak at 2,000 HTTP requests per second. hehe).

    Well some of do & some of you don't know, it is election year in Sweden.

    I expect some people will be voting differently now as they have realised that Sweden is becoming a Police state just like the UK!

    They probably jizzed their pants at the site of it. Wouldn't at all surprise me if they rushed a document/press release out without looking into it properly.

    We'll have to wait and see for definite if it's a hoax or not :)

    This is the part I like about the press release -

    Where the f&%k do they get these numbers? Do they have any idea how many movies I would have never paid to see? I would have happily awaited them on DVD, and rented it for 1$ (yes, that's how much I pay for rentals) - When the movie is absolute crap - I return it within the hour and get my dollar back.

    Anyways, rant's over, I'm sure some of you can relate to this.
