FOR-OiNK

I love the internet.

The RIAA shut down the private bittorrent tracker OiNK (popular for music that was hard to find, although sadly, I'd never heard of it), so the internet responded by posting the torrents on a public tracker, Piratebay and putting a "FOR-OiNK" epitaph on them.

Is it just me, or did the RIAA just make the files even more popular, easier for users to get, and harder for them to shut down? Oh, plus all the publicity generated by shutting down OiNK in the first place ftw (after all, I hadn't even heard of it till they decided to take it down).
