Reactions Around the Web
How come Himawari Douga hasn't been taken down yet?
"didn't think he'd get caught because everyone else was doing it too." What? Many people have been caught uploading on Share.
He uploaded it from home? What an idiot.
It's funny that none of the comments bash the act of "uploading" itself.
I wonder how heavy the punishment will be?
