Suprnova.org, once the biggest and most popular BitTorrent site on the net is for sale. Suprnova went offline 19 december 2004 and returned in 2005 as a P2P news site. Currently Suprnova still has pagerank 6 generating quite a lot of traffic.
A year after the closedown, Sloncek, the brain behind the legendary torrent site told what really happened:
..there was a door bell at 6:30 in the morning, saying it’s the police. Actually I was not expecting anything anymore, since SuprNova.org has been taken offline long before that. They showed me a court order to search my place and they did so. They took as far as I remember, two of my computers and lots of documents.
Today the site is for sale at sedo, the end of an era.
