For failing to meet their monthly quota of hacked foreign intelligence secrets
or for getting adventurous hacking the Chinese gov't intelligence network?

This is just a minor drop in the bucket for Chinese hackers, however. It's little more than lip service to the US to show that the Chinese government is 'getting serious' about policing illegal activities in its' own borders.

Chinese: We already arested our hackers. Our Agents are the ones eating at "Fooking Restaurant".

They shut this thing up only to get some pressure relief regarding the whole Google thing. Now they can say: look we are ''addressing'' the issue.

"however it is unclear if the 170,000 members with free accounts received the same lessons and software as paid members."

What, of course not. It would be dumb.

I agree
Ultimately it won't matter if the site is down anyhow as these 170,000 potential hackers are still 170,000 potential hackers less one web site to gain info from. If these people went as far as to seek instruction on hacking, a website being shut down will NOT stop them.

At the end of the day all 170,000 are now looking for resources elsewhere.

Why would you pay money to learn how to hack? I would be concerned that if I gave my credit card or Paypal account to access the site that the people who is hosting would hack the "want-to-be" hackers. Maybe it is just me!!

I know that every country has their dark nook that they don't want everyone to know about, but after living all over the globe (including China) I feel that when the public (public meaning people who think FOX news is the all knowing god) then everyone on an international level will be completely put off with China's little antics.

China is clearing most of the personal website with more restrictions. This "hacker training" site could be one of them. To my opinion, most of the free members are just normal people who are interested in hacking knowledge.
What I am not sure is if the law of US allows a site teaches hacking knowledge. It is interesting.

So you poeple suddenly think it's OK to close an internet site that's about software (hacking or not, it's just software) training, but it's not OK to close sites of other things. How is this one sided so called freedom of speech and press really work in your poeple's eyes? So is it that only things you agree with should be having the freedom of press, but things you don't approve should not?

Then if you, and all of you who just left the comments here think this way, how are you truely different from the Chinese government you hate? Time and again, people prove that they don't really want freedom for things and ideas they hate, they only want freedom of what of they want and beleive. The difference though, is that some poeple is not afraid to say this, while others cower and hides behind their self rightous claims.
