It's likely just temporary downtime for maintenance; it would be near impossible to shut TPB down for good.
The Pirate Bay Suffers (Local) Downtime
Ernesto May 15, 2012
Yes, The Pirate Bay is down at the moment. No, not everywhere. Every time The Pirate Bay suffers a few minutes for downtime, thousands of people start to worry that something awful has happened to their beloved site. Luckily, this is usually not the case. When the site’s not responding someone probably tripped over a cable, they’re working on software upgrades, replacing hardware or facing another technical difficulty.
The current downtime appears to be a routing issue as the site is still reachable in many parts of the world.
Just to clarify, we KNOW that it is NOT Anonymous who is behind the ddos attack. Stop spreading rumours like that. We may not agree with Anonymous in everything, but we both want the internet to be open and free. There, now carry on with whatever it is you were doing
