^This.

This, but remember, anonymous is a vengeful prick, and soon after we'd probably all be e-mailed with the personal information of whatever fed/judge that got the site shut down lol

And yes i know anon isn't a single person, but you should get my point

I can imagine quite a bit of repercussion. I personally loved MegaUpload. It had a lot of legitimate use to it as well.

I hate the way they want to shutdown whole sites. Should we evacuate a city due to a bankrobbery?

I would genuinely laugh. Then cry if NG gets affected.

As for MegaUpload, maybe they got shut down for making such a terrible song. Would be karma right? Anyway, not too bothered about it really. Unless its the start of things to come.

Or, anon will simply persuade Moot into restoring 4Chan under a new name/host/whatever.

I've always been slightly nervous that Anon would attack Newgrounds, but as far as I know nothing's happened yet. That, and Newgrounds' is probably super secure.

That isn't exactly going to effect me, and isn't do anything of which the prosecutors supposedly want. Where one site goes down there are hundreds if not thousands to replace it. They'll be wrapped up in court for years meaninglessly.

Could be. Every week, a new big website will be shut down, and soon a news article may read,

"Newgrounds, original Flash Portal and one of the pioneers of user submitted content, shut down!"

Fuck me, I may join a political group.

I would join you but I would be too busy attempting to refresh this site while rocking slowly and crying into a bowl of ice cream.

this is a slight inconvenience for me... I tended to use MegaUpload more than any other filesharing website, but usually only for hentai.
however, what does scare me is that this is most likely only a precedent of things to come.

Probably need to live in that fear and disdain. We cannot, should not, and must not allow governing officials to shut down sites due to copyright infringement and piracy. Megaupload's incidence should be looked more as a wake-up call rather just than "Oh well."

We all have a website we go to regularly. I can guess that not a one of them is free of copyright material. Be that a picture posted on a bulletin board system, or lyrics to a song.

What irks me is that they're shutting down sites due to a loss of money from someone else. Are other people not allowed to make money? I understand artists wanting to protect their businesses, but it's too great of a price. They could cause a great collapse. Could cause many businesses to fall, take damage, and push people out of employment. And if everyone's poor, who's gonna buy their music?

Greed is really going to fuck up this country. Too many people looking at self interest.

I rarely use megaupload, but it's decent to say the least.
I do hope they don't shut down mediafire or sonictube or whatever the hell it was called.

I would have cried if it was 7 years ago but I haven't found myself using megaupload at all in a long time so to me no big loss.
