There's Only Two Things I Hate In This World: People Who Are Intolerant Of Other People's Cultures And The Dutch.

MFR has got all of your one-stop shopping needs regarding stories about the shutdown of popular internet pirate torrent site OINK by British and Dutch authorities. Here they are in three different categories:

Objective:
Reuters
Speed of Silence
MTV
BBC
Pitchfork
NME

Snarky/Irreverent:
Idolator
AV Club
Idolator Twice
Mock Oink Memorial Site


Mournful:

Stereogum
I Guess I'm Floating
Oh No They Didn't
Zeropaid (via DIGG)

I never got an invitation to us OINK, which, at this point, is just as well. Happy Reading. If you readers have got any more articles, post them in the comments section. I'm sure there will be a lot more about this story in the days to come.

TVLinks got shut down, too. Things are going to get ugly for d/l sites.

Unfortunately, I think they can all be classified under "uninformed." No one really knows what's going on right now.

I think the best blog (which is just a link to the Reuters article) is from BrooklynVegan, which consists of about 50 comments on the 1 link. The comments increasingly fall under one category: "inflated sense of entitlement."
