One of the remaining popular torrent sites, ExtraTorrent has posted a message on its website that it has shut down permanently. Also all data has been permanently erased according to the message. It’s unclear why the administrators of the website have decided to close the site.

It doesn’t matter other sites will take up the torrents and torrents will continue to live on. Taking a site down doesn’t stop torrents anything thinking so is living in the stone age. Torrents will continue to live long after governments have fallen.
