    A sad news came from Hungary, a country which seemed to be a very secure place in terms of peer to peer networks and filesharing. Hungarian police raided and confiscated over 100 servers, including scene top sites, private bittorrent trackers and warez forums. Affected sites include the biggest and most popular hungarian tracker bitHumen (30 000 registered users), release site nCore (which is already up though), trackers Bitlove, Independent, Moobs, Revolution and many other private FTP sites which had a connection with the scene.
    The raid took place on November 9 between 11 A.M. and 3 P.M. in Budapest, Hungary. The sources write about 80 individuals from both police and special anti p2p organizations involved. The confiscated servers were hosted by various internet server providers (GTS-Datanet, Deninet, CFM, Giganet), so this was a highly organized and prepared raid. BitHumen temporary site informs its members that there were no IP addresses stored at the server, so they don’t have to worry about possible consequences from their membership.
    The seizure of so many servers which were connected mostly by 100 Mbit lines caused an interesting effect in the Hungarian peering center (BIX): the overall country traffic went from 60 Gbit/s to 35-40 Gbits after the raid. This is another serious attack on the filesharers in last few days - the raid of British music tracker Oink was just a beginning, followed by Demonoid’s downtime and now this issue. It looks that noone is safe anymore…

    And if RS and Newsgroups become as popular as torrents are, the government(s) will just turn around and attack them.
    *edit*
    They aren't exempt from copyright laws and will fall just as easily as torrent sites if they become too popular. The government has the resources; they just find torrent sites a larger threat to our global economy as of late.

    ...So keep spreading the word, ok?

    Rapidshare deletes all Reported files on complaints for being warez or porn files. So technically, whatever u are finding on RS is "LEGAL" stuff. LOL

    The only thing that keeps newsgroups from becoming too main stream is that it's pay-to-play.

    Thank god 13 year olds don't have credit cards...

    What makes you think they will stop enforcing their laws when terrorists start to bomb? Wishful thinking? Hardly. "Those pigs" are not cowards for going "against torrenting;" they are doing "a real job" (their only job, really) by upholding the laws defined and established by the people they represent.
