I'll be the first to admit my list is not in chronological order. I guess more like the way I discovered each one. But I hope I was still able to make my point.

See, this makes no fu*king sense.

You know why? Because this is a fu*king LINK sharing site. It by NO MEANS is responsible for the content that is uploaded.

That's like saying... We're shutting down Google, because we were able to find Kiddie pr0n by searching using it's engine. Are you fu*king serious?!. They are by no means liable and hold no responsibility in censoring material that is ILLEGAL or by other means unlawful.

If you're going to prosecute Megaupload for LINK SHARING, then you're gonna have to prosecute... Cough* Google, Bing, Fileserve, Yahoo, Mediafire, and any other fu*king site with a search engine or file sharing service.

fu*king corrupt a.ss government.

People are fu*king stupid. No, Swizz Beatz doesn't own sh*t--he has a ceremonial position as CEO (of a company that has a handful of employees, mind you; it's like being CEO of a lemonade stand) to entice other celebrity endorsement.

I love MU, but they should not have the reward system they had.. Giving away premium accounts and cash to the small percentage of uploaders that redeem points they earn from getting a lot of file downloads. When you have people making money off of uploading stuff, it makes you a bigger target.

Plus the Reward system was a nuisance for downloaders. People got reward points for each of their files someone downloaded, if the file is less than 100mb. People breaking avi files into 8 fu*kin 99 mb pieces

To encourage people to upload more files and spread the links around. Ad money from people going to MU to download something. They make millions from selling premium accounts, and people buy premium accounts from them because of the amount of stuff MU has.

Make money off selling premium accounts.. Sell more accounts by Paying people to upload files.

kinda shocked that BX did nothing to protest SOPA yesterday. This site cuz easily go in a second and all that "reputation" and threads people spent their time on will equal nothing.
