Submission + - Newzbin officially down (

BitwiseX writes: Usenet indexer Newzbin is offically down. "Apparently Newzbin has been put into administration yesterday because it couldn't pay its debts. Word is that they owe they MPA £230,000 just in interim costs, and that's without a full costs ruling or a decision on damages." The Newzbin Wikipedia entry has the same story. The reasons are still "gossip" but according to the placeholder on the site it was a result of the legal action against them.

Make it right before you make it faster.
