Oink May Squeal Again

Oink was taken down on Oct. 23rd, and --- who else but --- The Pirate Bay says it will bring it back, sort of.

OiNK was taken down on October 23 by police in the Netherlands and Britain in conjunction with the IFPI and BPI, and a message on the site's front page indicates that an investigation was ongoing into the "identities and activities" of its users.

However, the BitTorrent community has chosen to fight back, opening another site called BOiNK which is expected to be live within the next several days. The original owners of OiNK are not involved, nor are any other BitTorrent sites.

"The most important thing about BOiNK is perhaps the message it sends out to the IFPI and the BPI: It shows that that if you stop one tracker, others will pop up days after," Ernesto wrote for TorrentFreak. "It is a hydra. Call it a slap in the face if you want."

Anything to do with The Pirate Bay is a hydra, it seems.  We have no doubt based on what The Pirate Bay has done in the past, that this site will be live as they say.
