United States. On the agenda: copyright infringement

It's about time these torrent sites and illegal downloading of copyrighted material is stopped. It costs taxpayers more to combat and makes the prices go up for the material for those of us who are hardworking and decent people. I'm expecting a backlash, which is fine. I just don't agree with the attitude that stealing from people is right. I read time and time again about these people who have earned lots of money. The key word is "earned". Just because they have lots of money is not justification to download their albums, films, etc illegally.
Here comes the backlash.

For those of you up on the torrent scene, this is potentially big. The DDoS attack likely wasn't coincidental and, despite likely not breaking any laws in the Ukraine, was shut down....at the behest of United States authorities.

There was a reason, and it's because you stated that finding a private site would cure all ills
Some people find backtracking very telling...
and I see you haven't stopped making assumptions without actually knowing.
How fun. I also see that you use Vuze (LOL) and proceed to comment on the state of torrent sites...hilarious.
