Register responsible for Suprnova's demise

Cor blimey!

FoTW 'Tis the Wednesday before Christmas and all through the house, a great flame is roaring, from a reader with a grouse...

This eloquent chap is not the only person to blame El Reg for the demise of SuprNova, but he managed to fit in the most abuse, per word, so we thought we'd run it as Flame of the Week:

Way to go letting that article about suprnova loose. lets bring down more attention to an illegal underground operation. you couldnt just leave well enough alone. i think you're by far the biggest asshat i've ever heard of accept for the dumbshit that actually wrote it. mabey not right now, but mark my words someone is going to make "the register", fuckin no good brittish assholes, regret this the following is a list of why i hate brittish people

  10. got beat by a bunch of virginia rednecks and sent packing

Wow. We brought down Suprnova, single handedly*. It is nice to know that The Register has some real clout in the online world, and is the only place on the net where information about downloading and filesharing may be found. We shall consider ourselves quite the authority from now on.

We have alerted our marketing team to begin immediate negotiations for a handsome payoff from the MPAA.** ®

*To anyone hard of understanding, we didn't, the real reason for the closure of the site is quite different.

**Again, to those who have not yet finished their second cup of coffee, this is not true.
