OiNK: yes
smartface: did they actually question you?
OiNK: of course, for hours
sretsof: what was the stupidest wuestion they asked?
OiNK: the police had very limited technical knowledge, which made the interview quite amusing actually.

Stormx2: Everyone is first and foremost concerned for you and everything, but at the back of our minds (I think) we're interested in what you think will happen the the pink palace. Obviously you won't have a starring roll, but will the backups be destroyed?

OiNK: i found that amusing, yes
OiNK: i'm glad the article is staying neutral
midnightgt: (without incriminating anyone) is there any copy of the source anywhere? Would you be in support of a second coming of the website? How do you think this reflects on the war on file sharing? (Certainly I do not feel like we are losing) OiNK: sorry, no comment :)

I like how oink.cd uses capital letters on the new website WE ARE ANGRY

The entire OiNK userbase said...

Glad to hear that OiNK himself is ok, but in regards to TooMuchTime/TMT:

FUCKING SUCKED THE FUCK IN YOU FAGGOT MOTHERFUCKER I HOPE YOU FUCKING DIE IN A FIRE. YOU WERE A FAGGOT MOTHER FUCKING NAZI OP AND NOBODY LIKED YOU SO JUST FUCK OFF AND DIE. WE REALLY FUCKING HATE YOU. LOVE AND KISSES, THE ENTIRE OiNK USERBASE.

how about this for a 'Crazy' idea:

The record industry takes over OiNK and leaves it as but opens it up. If OiNK can get so much donations from just 180,000 users then imagine how much they could get if open. Secondly they now save money of PR and marketing. All their artists are now distributated and known! Word of mouth between users will make the good music spread on OiNK like wildfire. Bands are happy because they are getting known ... and more people come and see them on tour.

Record companies also save money using OiNK as they only need a server to host OiNK as the users are spreading the wealth using their bandwidth! They also need not make so many CDs - saving money.

To encourage users to donate they could offer ratio relief for users who would rather pay then upload.

By keeping the ratio requirements users are happy as donwloads remain very fast.

It's a win:win situation and the record companies need to start acting on models such as OiNK that are obviously making money otherwise they wouldn't be bothered to do the bust !

.. the servers would still need to be payed for plus more because of the enormous amount of people who would join the site. The community is ruined. I think the idea sucks actually

to the anonymous at 1:11

While I appreciate the sentiment, don't speak for the entire userbase. I'm sure there were one or two sickos that loved TMT! Granted, I'm not one of them, but meh.

So what's the deal with TooMuchTime? What did he do, other than be an asshat?

I'm sad to see the site shutdown for the people that had accounts and played nice in the forums. Personally I had my account deleted several times just because I didn't frequent the site(like 1 time a month because I get busy).
After 3 times of being deleted and then treated like some little kid about it, I decided to say fuck it. I agree, it WAS run by nazi's! I mean, can't even ask for a invite in the forums when you were a member 2 other times before and were only deleted because you didn't hit the site for 1 month? What else do you call that?! I call that bullshit. I even upped alot of music myself!! So I say, boo hoo! But I do think it was a great music site, just wasn't very friendly to casual users(and why can't that be accepted?)

TMT was a bit of a hardass, but he did do a cool thing for me once... Something was fucked up in a few of my torrents and he had deleted them. I corrected the problem, and was going to up them again and remembered how much research I had put into the descriptions for them. I asked him if there were back ups that he could pull the descriptions from and if he could send the descriptions to me. His reply was terse and he made it clear it would never be done for me again... But I did get the descriptions pm'd to me.
