SAN FRANCISCO — (TYDN) The world's most notorious movie and music pirate apologized Wednesday to downloaders who torrented his latest pre-release upload, only to find out that the album was the "clean" version marked "explicit."
The mea culpa by the unusually young pirate, who goes by the online handle babyolovich-yah!, comes days after The Pirate Bay's servers nearly buckled when babyolovich-yah! uploaded the pre-release version of the new Linkin Park album, "The Hunting Party." Seeders and leechers were sharing Linkin Park's latest offering by the hundreds of thousands, nearing the all-time torrenting record set last month by the Season 4 finale of "Game of Thrones."
But the feeding frenzy on the file uploaded from babyolovich-yah! came to a screeching halt after a commenter noted that the torrent was mis-marked as the explicit version, although it was the clean, censored rendition. "What a douche bag babyolovich-yah! is," read the comment from mpaaspanksmonkiescom. "This is the clean version."
In an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews, babyolovich-yah! reached out to his Pirate Bay and Kickass Torrents flock. "This was a genuine mistake. It was the first time after having provided the torrenting community with terabytes of pre-release and perfectly tagged content."
But an investigation by TheYellowDailyNews has found that his Black Uhuru discography uploaded last year was so awful that it ruined countless pirate's iTunes' collections with mis-tagged tracks littered throughout their collections. The sacrilegious bungle had prompted one commenter to say "WTF, what kind of an idiot uploads mis-tagged rubbish like that anymore?"
In response to the investigation by TheYellowDailyNews, babyolovich-yah! said he was considering abandoning his torrenting ways. Reminiscing of his happier, pre-torrenting days, babyolovich-yah! said he hearkens for simpler times before the constant hassles of always hustling to be the first to upload pre-release material.
What's more, he said, the constant fears of being sued by the film and recording industries is now eating at his insides.
"Sure, while I've always believed the National Security Agency could break into my Virtual Private Network, I don't feel safe as much anymore," babyolovich-yah! said during the exclusive 90-minute interview with TheYellowDailyNews. "I mean, what if the NSA gave my real IP address to the Motion Picture Association of America or the Recording Industry Association of America? I'd be screwed. And, besides, I'm tired of those Pirate Bay ingrates who pop off about the quality of free uploads. They're such babies."
