Bye bye, Megaupload


I know I'm a little late, but file sharing site Megaupload was taken down by the US Government yesterday. SOPA hasn't even passed and they're taking down sites. And it's not even a US site - Megaupload originated in Hong Kong. How long will it be before sites like Rapidshare, Mediafire, and the like are taken down is well? Mediafire has already dramatically pumped up its rule enforcement and has been taking down file after file since Megaupload's shut down. Ugh, government... I think we need separation of internet and state.

  12. The government is the same wherever you live. They keep themselves busy with the easy stuff while ignoring what's really important. Idiots. I may be called a dinosaur by one of my readers, but those government freaks still believe they can control the internet. Let's all stop paying tax. See what happens.
