    Missed out on a big money making opportunity willing to bet someone got told off for that little oversight. Hasn’t the trust been blown with megaupload, I find it hard to believe the customers would go back to them after all this has (possibly) blown over.

    MegaUpload was disciplined by the CONTROL system. Independence is not allowed, innovation will be stamped out at all costs and any profitable elements stolen. None will be allowed to threaten the mega-corporations dominance. The immovable CONTROL grid is being put in place and the dumbed down masses are either oblivious to it or allowing it to happen.

    Along those lines, “WHAT ARE WE DOING TO THEIR WORLD?”

    We have already allowed an evil system to flourish which ensures that they will be debt enslaved for life.

    I am all for an authorative as opposed to authoritarian discipline of kids, so that they understand what it is to be, and so actively chose to be thoughtful and caring citizens.

    Temporaily removing a privilidge such as pocket money ot TV viewing time usually works fine. Only now, it seems, the control grid are going further.

    It seems that at all ages and levels they are conditioning us for the FEMA camps.

    The lyrics from John Lennon’s, “Working Class Hero,” song seem somehow seem appropriate.

    “As soon as you’re born they make you feel small
    By giving you no time instead of it all
    Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
    A working class hero is something to be

    They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
    They hate you if you’re clever and they despise a fool
    Till you’re so ****ing crazy you can’t follow their rules
    A working class hero is something to be

    When they’ve tortured and scared you for twenty-odd years
    Then they expect you to pick a career
    When you can’t really function you’re so full of fear
    A working class hero is something to be

    Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
    And you think you’re so clever and classless and free
    But you’re still ****ing peasants as far as I can see
    A working class hero is something to be

    There’s room at the top they’re telling you still
    But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
    If you want to be like the folks on the hill

    A working class hero is something to be
    If you want to be a hero well just follow me”

    IT IS TIME FOR US TO SAY NO! IT IS TIME!

    The “extermination and replacement” of the tech industry by the New Englanders is nearly complete…I guess nobody cares that it’s the consumer who suffers? Here’s a fact: megaupload has brought more joy to my life than Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest combined. But well-connected Instagram gets to piggyback on the Facebook IPO, and megaupload gets raided. Of course, I’d keep my mouth shut if any of these were innovative, original, or useful ideas. But they aren’t. There haven’t been any good ideas in tech for a long time.

    When cheap money arrives, innovation suffers. Tech is almost a decade behind where it needs to be.

    These junior Swine, instead of siccing their parents on more innovative companies, need to either go back to Massachussetts or accept themselves for what they are and go to Utah where they’re building that giant data center for spying on the populace. That’s their version of “innovation” when left to their own devices…it’s not much of a talent eco system either, but it’s clearly the best they can do.

    And unlike FB, Megaupload had members that paid a subscription. If only Mr Dotcom esquire had done it sooner, he’d be the toast of Wall Street, hailed by journalists as entrepreneur 2.0, the next Bill Gates. He’d be setting up his philanthropic foundations, donating campaign contributions, he’d have had a get out of jail free card.
