After reading all the why's, wherefores, all that is....the accusations are pretty weak, but more of an embarrassment to the older KAT community is that if this guy was the money behind the machine, why did he leave a paper trail a mile long. That is just arrogance and naivety, and that is sad. To be under the assumption that you were bullet proof, and that nobody was watching as the site climbed in the world rankings,( when it went down it was number 71 in the world's most visited web sites I think), is just....... hmmm, no words to describe that.[/color]

Think it was 69 or 68 in the end.
Never met him. He, if the allegations are correct was obviously an astute business man.
I don't think arrogance  is what it is. When I first used old kat almost 8 years ago. It was a small site.
It became massive because it was such a good community and very good at what it did.
Kat has never hosted files. A facilitator but not a hoster.

Thats of all sites on the whole interweb though, I think, its pretty good going considering the sites more visited were the legit ones like wikipedia and youtube that don't come into torrent site rankings.
KAT was definitely the biggest back then, ET took over once KAT went and didn't last long after that.
I think it was the forum and rating system that made it so popular. KAT had much better community that looked after the site.

It was the whole setup. The ratings and everything.
