BTJunkie Shuts Down for Fear of Persecution

According to TorrentFreak one file-sharing site isn't going to wait around to be shut down by some government somewhere. Instead its founder is saying goodbye with a new welcome message on the site:

"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!"

BTJunkie's unknown founder said that his or her decision to shut the site down was a direct result of seeing the legal action taken against MegaUpload and Pirate Bay. BTJunkie was recently blocked from search results by Google, and had been reported to the US Government for allegedly offering pirated material. No legal action has been taken against the site.
