    Not at all surprising, though. Even if it's not intended to be a pirating site, it's one of the biggest ones there is. I'm rather surprised it didn't happen sooner.

    Crap. MegaUpload was great because it was free and you could send huge files there. Perfect for Memory dumps. It was better than SkyDrive (also free) because that has a 50MB file limit, so a memory dump would have to be spanned into multiple archives.

    Yep. Used the site over the years to save all kinds of original content from myself and friends on the web (NOT pirated music/movies/games) spanning nearly ten years.

    All of it is gone. My dumb mistake for never backing it up on a hard drive of my own, but it's always been there... never saw this kind of bullshit happening.

    The rest of what I would like to say is not allowed here, but suffice to say I am really pissed off right now.

    I'm surprised they didn't go after RapidShare. I know tons of people who actually pay to use that one.
