    BitTorrent search engine BTJunkie has abruptly shut down its website, giving its users a short and sweet goodbye: "We've decided to voluntarily shut down. We've been fighting for years for your right to communicate, but it's time to move on." It appears likely that the move was a defensive maneuver in response to law enforcement's takedown of the Megaupload site in January, accompanied with several arrests. If that's the case, BTJunkie is hardly alone in reacting to the Megaupload drama -- although its response is probably among the most drastic.

      The writing is on the wall.  If you keep running torrent sights the authorities are going to throw you in prison and take away your possessions.  It is better to shut yourself down and live a life of luxury than to become the next Mr. Dotcom.
