Torrent Site BTjunkie Shuts Itself Down


“An experience of a
lifetime” comes to an end.


By Blurt Staff


As PC World and other tech sites are reporting this morning,
BTjunkie closed its virtual doors this weekend. The popular torrent
file-sharing site’s voluntary move comes in the wake of the recent legal action
against MegaUpload, and BTjunkie indicated to TorrentFreak that this, along
with the high profile 2010 moves against Pirate Bay also “played an important
role” in the decision to close.


“This is the end of the line my friends. The decision does
not come easy, but we’ve decided to voluntarily shut down. We’ve been fighting
for years for your right to communicate, but it’s time to move on. It’s been an
experience of a lifetime, we wish you all the best,” reads a short message from BTjunkie.
