They were shut down yesterday by the god damned FBI and DHS (fuckers, I hate them). Anyways, I was a forum mod on there and just wanted to give it the proper burial that it deserves. Did anyone else use Elitetorrents to get their torrents?

RIP Elitetorrents

FBI and dept. of homeland security raided at least 8 states for elitetorrents.

Why we got shut down? Sharing illegal stuff :P

EDIT: just changed ET to elitetorrents

Just to be clear, ET as in a website, not ET as in the reagent used to synth LSD.

In the news story I read (skimmed through) I think the movie association was pissed off about the new starwars being availible the day before it came out and that so many people downloaded it in such a short time.

Everything was great about elitetorrents. We had our users upload music, the fastest stuff, great seeds, great admins and mods, everything.

Had a user base of 100,000 users as well.

Anywhere else you'd recommend for torrents now? With SuperNova and ET down (and several others) the only semi-reliable sites I know of are ISOHunt and TorrentSpy.

Why is the Department of Homeland Security involved at all in this matter? This is alarming. I thought they were to deal with terrorist issues only. Apparently I'm wrong.

You know, 'cause the Bad Guys could download Star Wars III before it gets released (IF it gets released) in other countries and sell it on the blackmarket to fund weapons and drugs.  Duh.  :tongue:

Thats the first thing I thought too. Why would they devote time to go after people who illegaly download movies if their country is at such a risk to terrorism as they claim???

The government began to classify cyber-crime and "hacking" as terrorism a few years ago. I think I first heard them refer to "hacking" as "terrorism" in 2002.

Thanks Trendal. Somehow I'm not surprised by this. I shall cry softly on my pillow the day I see jaywalking become a terrorist act on my television.
