OiNK users don’t have to worry about being prosecuted, according to the site’s admin. OiNK, the man, the myth, the legend, gave an impromptu IRC interview following his release from custody. In it, he tries to reassure fans, saying that the authorities had little to no technical knowledge (neither, it seems, does the mainstream media, judging by its reporting of the site’s closure) and that the site’s logs didn’t contain any incriminating information.
Any plans for an “OiNK successor” are unclear. When asked, all OiNK (the guy) could say was “no comment.”
It really is a shame to see the site go, piracy aside. The active, knowledgeable community was just as valuable as the torrents.
