"Perhaps the publicity from this site stimulated the FCC's process to stop the unlicensed broadcaster."

Perhaps...but it's much more likely that the interference to FAA-licensed frequencies in the Boston TCA got Datz Hits shut down quickly.  The FCC does not take too kindly to pirates who endanger lives by splashing over air-to-ground radios.  There was one in the Miami area a few years back who actually listened on the Miami-Dade International approach frequency and deliberately keyed his mike when he heard a plane requesting clearance to land.  They threw his butt in jail for that one.
