shiattiest panic room EVER.

He's got millions and he has a room to hide in, with absolutely nothing in it? WTF man.

Not only would I have one but there would be a small space inside it to hide in that won't be on the plans because I'd build it out myself. Yes, I'm just slightly paranoid.

I just want to go ahead and say this out loud to see if it sinks in any better.... the U.S. couldn't be bothered to do any more to the bankers who caused trillions of dollars of economic damage to the world economy than haul them into Congress and shout at them for a few hours.... but we have no problem helping another government lead a paramilitary assault on a guy's house for running a website that cost one industry a few million dollars.

Hmmm.... nope... it's just as back-farking-asswards absurd when I see it in print as when I think it in my head.

Who do you even vote out to start changing this type of insane shiat? So many of the people responsible for this are unaccountable to voters that I don't even know where you'd begin short of "with everyone".

Thing is... turns out that the raid and the warrants were declared illegal. So all the evidence... fruit of the poisoned tree, they can't use ANY of it against him.

They may well have to return everything to him and he may be able to sue the US dept of justice for damages.

Personally I hope he does.

Theaetetus: including armed guards patrolling the grounds, a bedside alert button, and a panic room, I think there's more to the story here. Remember, Al Capone was accused of forgetting to pay his taxes.


You just described my great-aunt's condo association in Florida. Stop living in as much fear as her, it isn't good for either of you.

Theaetetus: Cloudchaser Sakonige the Red Wolf: Good grief, all that just for someone accused of copyright violation? If I didn't know better, I'd think they're taking down a major drug cartel, the head of the Mafia, etc.

Considering that the guy accused of copyright violation also has "security forces" including armed guards patrolling the grounds, a bedside alert button, and a panic room, I think there's more to the story here. Remember, Al Capone was accused of forgetting to pay his taxes.


Al Capone was convicted of tax evasion.

If only he had realized he could have put his money in tax shelters on Bermuda and in the Cayman Islands.

So, remember kids, if you're going to be stealing somebody's money, the only way to get away scot-free is to be a banker.

Happy Hours: Snapper Carr: Happy Hours: Well, I feel safer now. The guy is a criminal though - maybe not for what he's currently charged with, but he has a record and changing his last name to "dotcom" should at least be a misdemeanor.

sorry, reference lost on me. I don't know who that guy is.



That's Kevin Brown, an actor primarily known for playing a character called "dot com" on 30 Rock.
