    kickass torrent's url redirected me to the half-assed phillipino domain registry, offering it for sale. Check of "kickass torrents down" yeilds this:

    I find it hard to believe that the domain name expired. I think a more likely explanation is some kind of governmental action.

    That's weird. I wonder if its blocked in the states then because it's still not working for me. Same error message.
