File-Sharing Site Was A Year-Long Pirate Honeypot

What is the world coming to when you can't even trust pirates these days? wink

A site founded by a former moderator of one of the most popular file-hosting and uploader hangouts has admitted today that his site was a honeypot setup to capture data on pirate activity. WDF, a former senior staff member at popular discussion forum WJunction, says that in the 12 months since his site went online he’s been grabbing information about uploaders and file-hosts. "I suckered sh*tloads of you," he said today as he announced the acquisition of his site by a U.S.-based anti-piracy company.
