If you really think they are going after the end users, then you deserve the cold sweat and panic you're about to go through. :rolleyes: Just like how all users of TPB got arrested when the founders were sentenced. Just like the US government went after all the MegaUpload subscribers after shutting down that site.

In the end, pirate site gets shut down. New one will open up. No surprises, no need to use explicits and certainly no reason to panic.

****! What about all the members of demonoid? Now, the US government will know the addresses of all the members and start breaking in and arresting everyone! This is gonna be like The Dark Knight but a nationwide aresst of thousands of people, rather than only a city. We're all ****ed! ****!!!!!

If you gave your home address to a file sharing website then you have nobody to blame but yourself. Seriously, who does that?

If you pirate, then yes, you're ****ed as you put it. I pay for things myself instead of stealing, so I'm okay.

Oh man, now where will people get stuff? I mean sure, there are shops, online stores, the Pirate Bay, direct downloads, and streaming sites... but aside from that we're all in trouble. ;)

Here's a whacky thought for the OP. Get a job and start paying for goods and services. But by the sound of the post, such action may require a work permit in order depending on the country/region of residency and their minimum age restrictions for labor.
