So, who wiped RIAA out?

RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) has certainly made itself one of the most hated organizations on earth.

I'm guessing this means that a lot of people will be happy to hear that the RIAA site has apparently been wiped out by unknown people, hackers or mysterious entities from outer space.

According to TorrentFreak, it all started when a Reddit user has posted a link to a slow SQL query in RIAA's site. Soon after that, and with the help of Reddit users, apparently, the site has completely vanished (first it lost all of its content and appeared more than half empty, though) and has not returned online until this very moment.

*** Please hold on while I wipe away my tears ***

RIAA's tactics have been to sue anything with a heartbeat that ever listened to music they might suspect as pirated. The latest news were that a Judge ordered RIAA to Pay legal fees to falsely fccused lawsuit target - the Second Such Ruling.

Let's hope they DON'T have backups. Too bad their law suits keep coming in.
