    It was taken down by its host, Burstnet, apparently at the request of US law enforcement authorities. Blogetry hosted 73,000 free blogs and apparently many people used them to post links to movies.

    It's a bunch of crap in my opinion.

    Those who did nothing wrong lose their blogs and become victims.

    Those who pirate the movies and share links or whatever will continue to do so.

    The end result = innocent people get screwed with and movies continue to be pirated.

    That is such BS!!!!! one of my best traffic blogs was on blogetry!
    Anyone know of other smaller free blogs other than the usual suspects? not interested in blogger/blogspot or wordpress!
    A Friend is using
    Code:
    pesopeso . com
    but I was hoping with something with more pagerank.
