People have been suspicious about this series since it got released. I've always been pretty open minded but the more I look, the more weird it gets. I've put together some details for you to see here. Make up your own mind....and contribute if you notice anything else. It might all be complete crap - but hey, its the weekend and i've got nothing better to do

Many times, movies - especially prereleased ones - originate from "Top Sites." Top sites are the tip of the piracy iceberg, where material typically trickles down to more common forms of exchange. Yesterday, the FBI arrested Chirayu Patel who ran a top site server.
The FBI had been posing for a considerable amount of time as server operators, inviting people to upload and download material. Once a solid relationship had been established between the FBI and top warez sites, the trap had been set. It was only a matter of time until the FBI had collected enough evidence to make an arrest. While the FBI has only announced the arrest of one individual, it is expected that more information will be released today implicating additional people.
According to Restless.ugtech.net, who broke this news event, the FBI ran a server name "Chud" and "Lad".
They were administered by an undercover agent named "Griffen."

The link provided by Califax offers up some more interesting 'coincidences'....

Well, just a little info for those who think because they saw it they know everything.
First off, I was one of the users on one of those sites. I am safe.
I was in a channel with "griffen" for a few months. In a channel with not many people things start getting imbedded into your brain like certain vhosts that to some may be a bit funny and to others may piss them off. Well after watching the movie a few things popped into my head
Gryffin for some reason, the first 2 times the guy said his nick, the voice in the background says
"He works for the FBI." Strange? Well ok, skip to the end where Gryffin is speaking to Drosan.
Notice the nick and vhost were on linknet? Now take a look at the vhost. I knew i saw that somewhere and it came to me, griffen's vhost was firstname.lastname@example.org ... wow coincidence?
Finally,a simple dns on the hostname will give you the following
[20:37] * Dns resolving the.yankees-suck.net
[20:37] * Dns resolved the.yankees-suck.net to 18.104.22.168

Hmm, bit strange dont u think? The ip that is binded to that vhost comes back to he.net.
The same place all 4 of those .us sites were busted? I guess we should all maybe think a bit about that one.
Sad thing is, some of us do have our enemies or rival groups. You do everything u can to beat them and have some hatred toward them because they are opposition. This goes the same for myself, but the fact is nobody ever deserves something like this... and to griffen .. go fuck yourself.

Are all these complete coincidences or is this going to turn out to be something really, really bizarre?
We'll know more soon.....
