[ga] US Government Seizes Torrent Search Engine Domain

As an FYI, see:

The US Internet black helocopters have arrived!  Seems
that Torrent-Finder.com couldn't behave properly after 
what has been a ongoing feud with the public regarding 
their behavior, so action was taken accordingly.  One can 
argue if such action was appropriate or even legal of
course.  So those website domain names that are engaged
or suspected of enguaging in 'Piracy' will be potentially
facing siezier and potential prosecution accordingly.

  FWIW, I think we are going to see many, many more of these
seiziers in the next few months and years, rightly or wrongly.
