""MediaGoblin is a free software media publishing platform that anyone can install and run. Decentralization, (...) is the main goal of the project, one that is backed and connected to the GNU project.

So far, MediaGoblin has raised only $3,000 of its $60,000 goal, with the campaign set to end April 14th, (...) that is a date that is soon approaching. The first crowd-sourcing initiative was in October of 2012, so this is not the first crowd-funding initiative the project has launched. This second campaign was clearly spurred on by the PRISM revelations of recent past. Having not noticed any failures to meet 2012's funding campaign, it's very possible the team may reach their goal again, given the intensity of the subject matter."

    Brave talk, lets see you back it up? Start running a Tor exit node, go ahead, put your ass where your mouth is. I bet like most here you have never even been arrested and have NO idea what court even costs....hint... a lawyer worth having will run you a mid 5 figures and you better not actually need a job or anything since the press will have you labeled "suspected child pornographer" before the mugshot has even entered the DB. Go right ahead, publish your exit node stats for us?

    And considering that Valve has doubled their revenues SEVEN YEARS IN A ROW I'd say YOU sir are in the minority, the majority really doesn't care. Do you scream that you don't have the "right" to first sale at GOG? Or do you just ignore the EULA like you do with the content you pirate? I do think it funny the pirates cheer the darknets....have yet to see any of them have the balls to actually participate...will you be the first? Kinda doubt it.

    Probably your attitude drives away any of those who might give you an invite. These things are out there, and the selection varies widely. I have an account at one but do not participate in it because I don't have time to play with ratios and such; I have better things to do these days. The thing is, though, it's very much on the down-low (not like Demonoid) and that is how they survive. You think the "scene" hackers release their work direct to TPB? You talk tough, but your street cred is a little slim here.
