Following up on Torrent Shutdowns: Slashdot has posted a bit on SuprNova being shutdown. What I found interesting were the comments: they are generally very anti-SuprNova, very pro-copyright. An example:
Furthermore, this is exactly what should be happening: the government attacks those who break the law, rather than those who create the tools. Bit torrent and p2p applications have legal, useful purposes; by seeking those who use them in illegal ways rather than banning them altogther is appropriate, rather than trying to ban them.
I find this odd (notice I said “odd,” not “wrong”) for a site like Slashdot.
