    Never used them.... never even went to the web site, though it made the news a zillion times.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    I figured they'd be closed eventually...

    The first time I went to that site was just now when I clicked the link in the first post. I'm surprised they lasted as long as they did.

    One less facility to download bundled parasitic apps, so I guess it's a good thing...

    Perhaps when/if they come back they'll have more respect for the law, and keep their distance from the parasites.
