    Hi all, just noticed that **** is unreachable.

    It seems that a Swedish Court rulling from last February has played out
    & Swedish ISP's have pulled the plug on the site, ready for the start
    of a court case on monday against its owners.

    Here's a few news links :-

    I hope the guys don't Dance the Hempen Jig for what they've done.

    Me too. I realize the the trial starts Monday, but the site is definitely up. All I know is that the scene releasers will be happy if the PB goes down. Direct DL FTW!!!

    Yeah, but it's not down. Maybe he needs to check his router.

    The servers are located out of Sweden and out of reach of law enforcement, meaning the site will likely stay online if the owners go behind bars.

    lot of torrent sites and another will take its place in popularity anyway if and when it does eventually shut down, simple supply and demand.

    no one critisizes usenext that charges money for its pirated warez?
