Notorious movie pirate "aXXo" has posted 'I am legend' on DarksideRG, marking his return after a long self-exile.
Notorious movie pirate "aXXo" has posted 'I am legend' on DarksideRG yesterday at 4:01 pm, indicating he's back with a bang after a long self-imposed exile.
After his last torrent on Nov 11, 2007, "aXXo" suddenly disappeared leaving disgruntled fans hard pressed to know the reason for his sudden departure from the exciting world of illegal movie downloads.
The rumor mills ran overtime; some fans thought he'd been caught by the RIAA or MPAA or some such anti-piracy body. Others debated as to whether the poor chap had met with an accident.
At the time, a Darkside Release Group administrator put an end to all the speculation when he reportedly said, "aXXo told us that he has decided to take a break, so you will not see new aXXo torrents anywhere for a while. Please show your support by keeping his torrents alive until he comes back, as always, he will post here first when he does."
And true to his word, "aXXo" has returned to post "I am legend" on DarksideRG. Subsequently, he's posted "The Mist" today as proof that he's very much back in business.
Incidentally, "aXXo" may truly be called legend. Before his self-exile, an estimated 1 million people downloaded his DVDrips almost every month. What's more, anti-piracy organizations uploaded fake torrents using the "aXXo" moniker, so did malware peddlers use it to send infested software. A wannabe pirate even "made hay while the Sun shines" so to say by using the "aXXo" name during the real aXXo's absence.
But now that the real "aXXo" is back, avid movie downloaders are excited as much as they were saddened by his departure. Meanwhile, anti-piracy organizations are bound to cringe at the news because he remains the single person who may have costed them trillions of revenue lost by illegal movie downloads over the Internet.
