Thread: Don't use rapidshare.com

    Default Don't use rapidshare.com

    Well, suffice to say, I was doing a Googlehack to try get my friend some e-books on her favourite topic, and low and behold, Rapidshare comes up.

    I won't give the exact link as it would be ILLEGAL to do so, but they have a specific folder that contains child porn. I've submitted it to FBI for investigation.

    So yeah, personal tip. Probably best not to use that website for a while, be it for downloading or whatever. Whole site may be subpeona'd for having that folder.

    England has an FBI?!?!

    I learn something new every day. Oh and how do you go about reporting things to them?

    No, England has MI5. But I believe it's an American site...I didn't even check actually, regardless however, it'll get back to the right authorities.

    That's like holding bittorrent accountable for pirated media. -_-

    And... how did you come across this folder, child porn doesn't usually come up randomly...

    Mako. First off. If you're trying to accuse me of something, then I'm sure nearly every member on this forum will confirm that's not the sort of person I am. I was searching for e-books for a friend, I didn't mention the name of the e-books because I'd rather not have someone replicate my search and simply spread the link before it's removed by the authorities.

    Secondly, Bittorrent does not actually host files, it's just a medium for obtaining them. Rapidshare on the other hand DOES host files.

    Problem with not using RS, is that so many files are hosted there, and it pisses me off SO much.

    Rapidshare and other file hosting sites similar to it will always have child porn on it at some time or another. Just a case of flagging it up and Any reasonable company as big as rapid share will take it down fairly quickly.

    I've seen all sorts of awful things being hosted on those sites. It is horrible to know that there are people sharing out these links.

    I'll continue to use Rapidshare when I need it. As torrents are not allowed on my network. I have worked ways around, however. It won't be long till they sus out what I am doing.

    Wouldn't those people be sued for having Rapidshare host those pics? Or does that fall under protection because they're not allowed to give out personal info?


    Incedently I host a download of a painting I did last spring on RS, because I like the fact that it's free.

    You make it sound like the FBI wasn't already monitoring the site for child pornography and other illegal things.
    Also Rapidshare is German I think.
    Either way I can't remember the last time I used rapidshare for anything other than Touhou related stuff and a few MP3s made by doujin groups.

    So you are fine with them hosting pirated content but once there's kiddie porn (which is sick by 99.9999% of the world standards) then there's a problem with them? Both are against the law. <_>


    I am not saying you shouldn't report it. But its not like rapidshare knows every little file someone uploads to them then they in turn hand out. I am sure its a very automated process. So blaming them of providing child porn and supporting it seams rather stupid to me.
