The letter you have posted contains personal information.
I am an individual not a corporate entity, and therefor this is harassment. Please remove my letter immediately.
Also you did not remove the torrent as requested. The page still shows the info and the files listed.
Since you have proven that you would prefer to fight rather than comply with my polite request, I will now contact your ISP for removal.

Fantastic!

And here's our reply to this nonsense:
Hello, nice to hear from you again!

> The letter you have posted contains personal information. I am an individual not a corporate entity, and therefor this is harassment. Please remove my letter immediately.

Letter contains information freely available on the internet.

Can you read and understand English? There is a page
http://bitsnoop.com/info/legal.html which says "By sending email to
the address mentioned above you grant us nonexclusive rights to use it
in any way we deem necessary."

> Also you did not remove the torrent as requested. The page still shows the info and the files listed.

Torrent was removed.

We can "list" whatever we want unless it's not downloadable. Please
save yourself from further embarrassment - get a clue about DMCA and
how internet works.

> Since you have proven that you would prefer to fight rather than comply with my polite request, I will now contact your ISP for removal.

Please do. They will be amused I'm sure. :-)

And for the record - your request was definitely not polite with all
them lawsuits threats and stuff.

Cheerio!
