#NowPlaying T.I’s Dead and gone because that is exactly what has happened to Extratorrent, the world’s second largest torrent index. People who visit the site today will be greeted with this message:
TorrentFreak reached out to ExtraTorrent operator SaM who confirmed that this is indeed the end of the road for the site.
“It’s time we say goodbye,” he said, without providing more details.
In my opinion, this indicates that it was done voluntarily and the funny thing is, there have been multiple volunteer shutdowns of similar sites in the past weeks. No information is ever revealed as to why they decided to shut down, just that it was voluntary. Now, I am going to assume that somebody is putting a lot of pressure on these people and they’re doing it to avoid criminal charges.
It is also time we face the truth:
The days of easy pirating are numbered. It’s being attacked on all fronts, and the money is there to keep the war going for as long as it takes, so enjoy it while it lasts. Eventually, it will become so difficult, and so legally dangerous that most people will just give up.
