    Shutdown and reboot the internet and lets all start from the beginning. There wasn't anyone downloading anything except from BBB, then dial-up then adsl and then cable. Now here we're all doing it again. But now governments are going after those who run these sites at the source. They let it go on this long and now trying to kill them off.

    Here is why. The internet has HUGE collection of experiences and knowledge which helps the society. Why would you run a suicide. This would be pointless anyway, the P2P websites would emerge regardless, they would find loopholes, trust me on that. Whether the community would all join forces and launch their own satellite or other ways to avoid being shut down by the law.

    "United States of Arrogance" <== one of the best descriptions I've read in many years :D

    There is a reason for continuous talk about monitoring internet (+social mediums), no matter what is the perception, ruling elites in almost every country are fearful of 'free speech/will of the people' for obvious reasons, hence, even if there was no piracy we will still be under the watchful gaze of nanny state(s) .........

    No, thieves, burglars and assassins are the people they hire. Just ask Obama, who is open about having had people killed. And he's supposedly a constitutional lawyer. (I wonder who bought him his Ivy League degrees.)

    Spreading TPB servers around undisclosed locations - decentralizing the data - is brilliant. The best way to frustrate any over-concentration of power or wealth seems to be to decentralize whatever it is so the power-and-money graspers become irrelevant. That's one thing the anonymizing Tor network does very well with data streams - keeps them decentralized and hard to block. Nothing central to attack. It's what makes Occupy effective - no central ringleaders to assassinate or imprison.

    I bet TPB has a dozen or more alternative domain names tied up by shell companies or sympathizers in countries that, unlike the U.S., actually protect the freedom of their people. If the corporations that own the U.S. politicians attack one domain, they could simply activate another. If nothing else, it'd keep the briefcase-toting lawfare goons hopping from place to place. If TPB lost a domain, it'd be a nuisance, no more.

    At my age it's embarrassing but I seem to have become a TPB fanboy. :)
