Facebook Removes ExtraTorrent Page, Deletes User Profiles

I'm not exactly sure why these guys are acting surprised, Facebook deletes these kinds of pages all the time. Look, I like to kick Facebook in the nuts as much as the next guy, but I don't think this is a case where they deserve it.

Facebook has removed the official page of ExtraTorrent after complaints from copyright holders. In addition to the page removal, Facebook also deleted the profiles of the admins, while adding a mandatory security check for users who want to post ExtraTorrent urls on their timeline.
