Pitty, loved to go to them, but have been making use of Limetorrents for a while as well, and to a lesser extent TorrentFunk. There will always be somewhere to find stuff for review before buying.

Seems the real problem was that the Feds wanted to place a "faster downloads" ad on the site (courtesy Ars Technica) :D

In the complaint, the HSI agent also describes how an undercover IRS agent purchased an ad on KAT in March 2016 at the rate of $300 per day. The KAT representative, "Mr. White," provided details for a Latvian bank but warned the American buyer to "make sure that you don’t mention KAT anywhere."

After a successful five-day ad buy, the undercover IRS agent again tried to buy another ad. Mr. White told him that the existing "faster download" ads were all sold out but that he could buy a pricier banner ad at $1,000 to $3,200 per day

All 4 of the (older) work. Tested...I always test to see quality; subtitles after I dl. I have Stranger Things lined up for tonight. I'll see how that goes.

Vaulin was arrested on Wednesday in Poland

In what universe does the US have the authority to arrest someone in Poland? :wtf:

Hope they wiped their records :D

Der-Yeghiayan also estimated KAT's annual advertising revenue as being more than $16 million per year as of 2016.

Say what :wtf:
