This. Absolutely. Sucks.

Just read this on Yahoo. (

Feds: Megaupload user data could be gone Thursday
Prosecutors say data from Megaupload users could be deleted beginning Thursday

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal prosecutors say data from users of Megaupload could be deleted as soon as Thursday.
U.S. prosecutors have blocked access to Megaupload and charged seven men, saying the site facilitated millions of illegal downloads of movies, music and other content.
Megaupload hires outside companies to store the data. But Megaupload attorney Ira Rothken says the government has frozen its money.

A letter filed by prosecutors Friday says storage companies Carpathia Hosting Inc. and Cogent Communications Group Inc. may begin deleting data Thursday. Spokespersons for the two companies did not respond to messages Sunday night.

Rothken says the company is working with prosecutors to try to keep the data from being erased. He says at least 50 million Megaupload users have data in danger of being erased.

I hope they don't erase the data. Don't give in Megaupload!! We believe in you! f**k you FBI and the whole US Government.

*Praying the whole T4U matches archive will still be alive. Who knew how we could go from having a thousand matches to download here anytime, to one day have it all taken away.*

I doubt the two companies will delete the data. Anonymous would hack and remove all their data storage for other customers if they were to do so.
