Wow this post really gathered A LOT of interest from all of you.

At the moment, I can't remember who the poster was that mentioned Pandora's Box, but, that is exactly what happened here. Someone KNEW that this particular torrent, with it's local nature, would draw a massive amount of attention... more than most other torrents on The Bay anyways. Likely this is not their first attempt to post something controversial and morally questionable, but, they saw this particular chance as an Achilles heel. The person(s) in question had to know what they were stirring up and saw it as their greatest opportunity to make the Pirate Bay show their hand... and it worked.

Peter made the best decision in this case, but, there was no right choice... just the lesser of two evils:

Give into the masses and remove the torrent setting precedent to be boycotted and objectified for not removing past or screening future torrents;

OR

Tell the masses "NO WAY!" and keep the playing field level... no torrent is any more special than any other... thus still inciting the wrath of the public but maintaining that torrents from real users are just as equal to torrents posted by haters and naysayers and that no legal torrent will ever be removed.

There is no question of Morality, Freedom of Speech or Legality as far as the Admins are concerned... they do not post the content... and in most cases do not even download and view it (can you imagine how much data that would be if they did???) What is in question here is the amount of manipulation certain people and groups can have on the common citizen. This was not just a random post by someone... this person or group most likely has ties high up and had this planted intentionally. I would not be suprised if the Interview was a setup as well just to fluster Peter and force the Bay to stumble in their resolve.

Mark my words, you can take this instance as one of the first attempts at Bittorrent Terrorism on the Pirate Bay and it most certainly will not be the last. As long as the policy remains that no legal torrent will be taken down, no matter what the content, then you can bet there will be more posts just like this one.

I do not know what the solution is but noting the past actions of the Bay Admins, I am sure they will come up with something outside the box. Let's just hope they do before the Swedish Public turns on them.

Not to mention the extraordinarily creative camera angles often used !
