ThePirateBay.org are hosted by PRQ.se and DCPnetworks.net, which are the internet servers in Sweden owned by Fredrik Neij and Gottfried Svartholm Warg, the founders of The Pirate Bay. They also own Serious Tubes Networks.

Here's the disturbing thing: Neij and Warg's company PRQ hosts and co-owns Nambla.org, a website that caters specifically to pedophiles.

Actually, Serious Tubes is saying that Comcast is lying, and did not help them fix the issue.

Here, I see the usual disconnect between technical departments and management.

Counterintuitive? 

The people that buy the largest (XXXMB/s with huge download caps) packages from Comcast are those that usually pay the highest price, and probably those that download a LOT of stuff. 

No surprise Comcast wants them happy.

Only people who love virus' and cease & desist letters use Pirate Bay.

You just have to be smart when downloading torrents off Piratebay. Trust only the ones with special skulls and read the comments just in case. For the uploaders with no special skulls or anything, just make sure you know that that person is trustful, and read the comments as usual.

 

That's what I usually do. It's fact. Easy as that!! Basically, Blastadon's comment sums up everything on how to be safe on Piratebay.

Ohh... so that's why I couldn't access Pirate Bay on that day. I wonder if Pirate Bay would meet its fate like Limewire did. O_o

Listening to customer complaints is the opposite of counterintuitive.

Not for Comcast it isn't.

I bet they only did this to ensure they could continue to watch traffic for future copyright piracy lawsuits.

Is this one of the seven signs of the coming apocalypse?

I had this same issue yesterday, but my ISP is Verizon, not Comcast. However, when attempting to access TPB on my Verizon Wireless phone, everything was all hunky-dory. I'm a bit perplexed, but I can understand why that might be possible. Ironic, isn't it?
