Well done, FBI, for helping Kim Dotcom achieve global fame

ZDnet - Kim Dotcom turned the launch of a small, buggy, not-very-original New Zealand website into a huge global media event, but he couldn't have done it without the help of the US justice system and the FBI. (Industry, Kim Dotcom)

The whole investigation was one big illegal clusterf*** instigated by the c**** at the MPAA, RIAA etc

I'm glad the case is now going against the US government (The corrupt b********)

The guy's a career criminal, stealing access codes and phone cards and selling the information as a kid to embezzlement and insider trading that helped him steal millions even prior to this whole mess, spending years on the run from authorities after. I still don't get why people defend this guy. If a guy is convicted of multiple accounts of rape his entire adult life, who in their right mind would let them go out with their daughter on the off chance that he's suddenly changed? If a man steals millions in a bank robbery and is caught, you better believe he's doing some serious jail time, not getting a slap on the wrist and then let out to go spend those millions he made from his criminal endeavours.

It's ridiculous. Even if the current case of piracy and money laundering is thrown out because of the way it was investigated, are people really that stupid to trust this guy ever again, given his long criminal history? There's no way I'd trust this thief with my personal information or data.

No doubt he's probably taking whatever you share and selling it to the Chinese gov. Or he's just using the site in another money laundering scheme. Or he just masturbates to your photos. Who knows what he's up to, but it can't be good given his track record. Why on earth anyone would willingly entrust their files to this criminal is beyond me. You couldn't pay me to copy my files over to his site.

People on the internet will praise him until they're personally effected, if ever. Meanwhile, he's likely preparing his 10th illegal venture to become more wealthy.

As seems to always be the case with dealing with piracy, one step forward, two steps back.
