You're right. It was 4 a.m. and I looked at piratebay.com rather than thepiratebay.org. Not the worst mistake in the history of journalism, but a pretty good one. In this case, doing less research would have prevented the error. Odd how that happens sometimes. And, no, I did not give piratebay.com any money.
Most of the world seems to have put the founders in jail, as did I. (And I look forward to when they actually are in jail).
