Very bad :( seems like 2012 really is the end of the world, SPOP,PIPA and no more megaupload!

Instead of them focusing on getting the streets, air travel safer, they focus on helping rich people from Hollywood!

I've been using MegaUpload for year, loved the service, I knew this day was gonna come :'(

Well time to look for a different service!

@SantistaUSA - Don't worry, the MPAA and RIAA are pumping back money into their pockets. Doing good for your people *PFFF* That's for loser politicians. /s

They should just reup the site under an Iranian or North Korean domain, and lets see the FBI try and take it down then!

Can you say with a straight face that megaupload was anything but a site for watching free movies and Tv shows?

Oh, sorry, no more low quality rips of walking dead and anime. Freedom is in danger.

Grow up.

Your point? There was great quality rips! You just gotta know how to look for them. ;)

They should`ve woke up 5-10 years ago. It's too late.

Wow, how do you shut down MegaUpload... wow that's just crazy...

That means many other file hosts could be at risk. The end is near.

The ironic thing is yesterday I sat down and thought to myself, 'if "piracy" is so rampant why not just attack the sharing sites???'.. Waking up this morning to find this.. BAM! Talk about coincidence!

Lets hope the other sharing sites take this into consideration seeing that they might be next on the list!

This is insane, now every file hoster is a target!

Well that explains why I can't download a mod for World of MMA 3.
Greedy bastards.
