Kodi website Hacked/Seized/April Fools prank?

So… go on… which is it?

Its real, and now we are coming for you…

For a short time the “carries penalties” portion was a link to Rick Astleys “Never Gonna Give You Up”. As soon as I mentioned that in the IRC channel, this link disappeared. So you just need to wait out APRIL Fools day and all will be normal. It was also pointed out that the pages are still SSL protected and that they don’t tend to enable SSL when seizing a domain, as they wouldn’t be using it to collect private info.

Can anyone pay my bail?

It’s real. And it’s spectacular.

You mean let’s make Kodi GREAT again

This could be construed as parody and would most likely be exempt.

The site is back and I might say, has had a new design on the frontpage which is nice. Two new blog posts:
