Oink.cd Shutdown

phobos13013 (813040) writes "Popular, invite-only, bittorrent site Oink.cd (formerly Oink.me.uk) has been shut down by British police. Supposedly, investigations into the estimated 180,000 users are being considered. This shutdown is fast on the heels of the popular tv-links.co.uk shutdown. Seems the British authorities have been very busy recently and may well be in the future with this round of arrests; however, it is unclear what if any legal repercussions will ensue from the sites' admins or users."
