Another nail in the coffin for torrents?

BitTorrent indexing engine BTJunkie has decided to voluntarily close down after 7 years of service.

The decision to shut down the site comes shortly after founder and six employees of file hosting service Megaupload were arrested on charges of piracy and money laundering. If found guilty, the accused are looking at a maximum 20 years prison sentence.

In an interview with TorrentFreak, the site's founder said that recent legal action against Megaupload and other file-sharing services was one of the reasons behind the decision to shut down the site.

BTJunkie was one of the most popular torrent indexing engines on the web.

So sad, I had to check out the site for myself.  What a downer - this site has been a great resource.
