    Anyone know why they shut down?

    Does anyone know of a better alternative?

    I've been using them for several years now :(

    It's shut down because Snowden used that service.
    The owners said that they did not want to get in some legal issues with the U.S. government.
    Read it in the newspaper yesterday.

    BTW's A simple search in google would have answered your question.
