I’m sorry to do this to you. But with all the fawning press by technology journalists on the Pirate Bay, someone has to remind the world how horrible the Pirate Bay really was. The technology press has given them a free pass for years. The misery they created for thousands of creators is nothing compared to the misery they created for the father of two murdered children after their autopsy photos were distributed on The Pirate Bay. When the father asked TPB moderators to remove the photos be removed this was the response: he was to stop whining and fuck off.
This is the “courage of conviction” you are praising Caitlin Dewey. How the fuck do you sleep at night?
Oh and why didn’t you mention that the Pirate Bay was originally funded by Neo-Nazi?
That apparently was their “courage of conviction” as well. Is this also a conviction you admire?
Do you and the Washington post normally go around praising organizations funded by Neo-Nazis?
