    But doesnt running a web site that makes a lot of money enables tazmo to have some uber server? I dont see how the plan can succeed.

    I think the OP is proposing a Leech attack.

    You use a program to download so many files from a site at once that it causes a severe pull on the site's server. If enough people work together on it, it will cause the server to meltdown from having to process that much bandwidth at once. At the very least it will drive the owner's server bill skyhigh

    Not that I would advocate something like that. Although perfectly legal, it's also very much in the grey area, and to be honest Tazmo hasn't done anything to warrant that kind of attack. He's a dick and a profiteer, but that kind of thing can literally send someone into such debt that they never climb out.
