Welp, that's sucktastic. I didn't use megaupload much since I stopped getting like, scanlations and stuff, but it's terrible that it's gone. Still, this doesn't quite
seem like an "end of the internet, they're just inventing reasons, they won't even need
SOPA" thing, and more a "They actually 'were used for piracy and illegal downloads'" thing. Yes, there were plenty of legitimate files on it, but to be totally honest, I can't think of a single file I ever downloaded from there that wasn't
EDIT: And Anonymous is probably doing more harm than good with this. One of those "Stop Helping Me!
" things. It smacks of "you took down
Megaupload so I can't steal music anymore, so I'm gonna fuck with your
shit." rather than "I feel this was a poor decision for reasons unrelated to piracy and illegal downloading, I'll protest the only way I know how."

They lost me. Forgot me. Made you from parts of me. If you're the One, my father's son, what am I supposed to be?
