    So should any of its users be worried or anything? Like a 'cabin in the mountains with an uzi' kind of worried?

    No, there's no need to be worried. TPB got their servers siezed and nothing happened because of it. All the servers could list would be the IP addresses of people who've downloaded torrent files. That's nowhere near good enough evidence on it's own to make a prosecution for breach of copyright.

    i live in a town called keighley in west yorkshire, a town riddled with drug dealers and nasty people. Why the police aren't sorting out these people, who actually cause real harm to people and instead cracking down on the original sin of piracy which only benefits the public (ok, so what if some already stinking rich businesses lose out) is beyond me.

    p.s
    Bill Bryson in his book Notes from a Small Island jokingly asked why it was that the British Army uses beautiful countryside for munition target practice, rather than a place like Keighley.

    I live ~5 miles from Keighley. I aim never to go there again if possible, it's literally one of the worst places I've ever been.

    Meh, who cares?




    ...could never get an invite


    Past evidence has suggested otherwise. Having said that, it does make me somewhat thankful for dynamic IPs. Not that it would ever be a problem for me.

    Noooo, Ive been using oink for the past year and got so much from it. It was brilliant for Albums and applications :(

    Had a really tight invite system, hence why not a lot of people know about it.

    Damn. I occasionally relied on them for extremely obscure and impossible to find music.

    excuse me, I think you'll find bit-tech is the best site ever. Maybe Oink was a close second :p

    Still amazes me that the police spend any time or effort on these "criminals". surely the cash strapped budget boys should be concentrating on real crimes that hurt real people. besides its only one of hundreds of similar sites. They are making no impact at all on download levels and probably never will without bringing down a police state.

    Surely the guy who got arrested could just say God phoned him and told him to do it. Worked for Bush when invading Iraq :)

    never heard of the site. i do wonder what people think when the register on this kind of site. eventually they will get raided and dependant on the logging avaliable on the site be traced.

    http://tehpaine.blogspot.com/ - some official information about OiNK the person and OiNK the site.

    Also, do not donate to any "legal defence funds" unless they are specifically linked to from that site, otherwise you could just be handing your cash over to a scammer.
