im going to call bull**** on this
rapidshare was shut down once before, they came back, and are still going strong.
Napster was shut down, not only did they come back but 20 things came out in place of them. Something will always be around.
You can still fileshare, it just takes a little more effort at this time, sites like filejungle, wupload, deposit files are still running normally.
Somebody mentioned newsgroups, ive used nzbmatrix in the past to browse them, wicked fast downloads, with grabbit, but you have to pay a 7 dollar fee to be able to search, otherwise you can only browse whats been posted in the last 20 days.
Link sharing sites like spooky igloo, divxturka, codehacks, digital kaos still seem to working normally, all the specialized sites have extra stuff on them too, just becasue the site is named wiiso, xbox360iso or sinfuliphone doesn't mean they don't have links to other stuff. Just look around.
Heck most of those sites have sections where premium account info is shared so you can download many files at a time faster
