the working site is .to and it's run by different people and most of the torrents are bogus malware and should be avoided, in this case the court has done the novice downloader a big favour!

The police have persistently treated self confessed cyber criminals as victims.
People who lose money to to well known scams like:
I am the chief cashier of (insert name of African Bank) and I control 200 millions of dollars in the account af a late white businessman and need an accomplice to claim the money etc.
By sending money to the fraudsters the victim has become a willing conspirator to obtain the funds, the fact that the account is non existent is irrelevant so, when they present themselves to the police why are thay not prosecuted?
Could it be that they are too stupid to recognise a criminal when he is standing right in their faces?
A prosecution would make a great tabloid story and the resulting publicity could actually encourage these gullible fools to take care of their own affairs.
You phone Virgin media because you have a fault, eventually after answering the 'technical support' persons irrelevant scripted question they finally agree that there is a fault but unfortunately they can't access the system to book an engineer so you will have to call back later, when you call back later there is no record of the previous call so they insist on going through the script again and and then thay tell you that they still can't book an engineer so, call back again.
They are so poorly trained that they see nothing wrong with that request so it's no wonder that so many people kick them out!
I have no sympathy with soliciting on the streets but shouldn't there have been some actual evidence before this man is fined so much money?
Considering the derisory fines (typically around £100) and sentences for assault and robbery where the victim is often left in fear of walking the streets this seems excessive as there was no victim!
In the real world I support PCs in homes and small businesses and I have only one recollection af a PC with Microsoft Security Essentials becoming infected, but I an continually dealing with PCs with McAfee, Norton, AVG and Avast that have become infected.
It's not an INDEPENDANT test just my experience.
Wordperfect lost ground when they brought out the first windows version of WordPerfect because MS circulated an incomplete developers kit, which WordPerfect eventually won damages for but the damages at $100m were insignificant when compared to the damage done to WordPerfect in terms of loss of market share.
I never have and never will purchase anything as a result of facebook.
I have used commercial pages on facebook to communicate my displeasure with those companies.
In particular, I have posted pictures of my local KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) polluting our local environment with stinking overflowing bins outside their shop.
Clearly there is no value in this advertising for KFC....
I am personally unable to appreciate the value put on facebook by the purchasers of the shares, but I suspect the people purchasing the shares are 'expert stockbrokers' who are spending other peoples money.
