Mass hysteria strikes again. As an indie author myself, I think its a shame this site came down. Once somebody buys my book, their free to do with the one copy they purchased as they please. In fact, I'd encourage them to share it because it probably means they like it and will share it with someone who will like it as well, then I get another reader and my fan base grows. Dale wasn't mass producing digital copies and giving them away for free. He was just hooking up one reader to another.
Even more annoying, the people who are complaining are probably the same ones who give away thousands of copies of their books a month for free under Kindle select.
As far as I'm concerned, its not piracy. Its free advertising and I'll take it. Hope you get your site back up somewhere Dale.
