RIP Torrentz

Postby Coppershot » August 5th, 2016, 6:26 pm

https://www.wired.com/2016/08/torrentz-died-wont-take-torrenting/

Two weeks ago, federal authorities seized and shuttered KickassTorrents (KAT), the world’s largest torrenting site. This week, Torrentz, the world’s largest torrent search engine, closed without notice or explanation. Two of the largest sites in piracy have blinked out—but that won’t speed piracy’s steady decline.

If you’re not familiar with Torrentz, it’s easiest to think of it as the Google of the torrenting world. And if you’re not familiar with torrenting, it’s a file-sharing technique that spreads data across multiple computers and is often used for piracy, but not always! Torrentz didn’t host files itself; it instead acted as a search engine, directing people to sites (like KAT) hat facilitated actual peer-to-peer sharing of pirated content. That made it a major presence not just within the torrenting community, but on the Internet at large; before it shut down, it was 186 on web-ranking service Alexa, putting it ahead of sites like Weather.com and Flickr.

Yup. A little birdie also told me AR is just as good but they have a lot of FL torrents and a generous BP system so maintaining ratio is a lot easier. Also, no wait time restrictions for newbies like TL.

TL has more app torrents but AR has all the latest and greatest series and movies just like TL.

Anyone using Piratebay these days getting a VPN warning? Was wondering how valid the warning is that I should be aware of.

Roach - I know piratebay is still around, but my question was whether the 'warning' posted on piratebay about getting a VPN to hide your IP address is valid, and whether there is any truth that torrent downloads can actually be traced to your IP without a VPN.

Anybody using a VPN locally? I've been convinced that I should get one so I'm looking around for any recommendations. It'll be mainly used for torrenting and Netflix. I appreciate that there'll be a subscription cost but am willing to shop around for good value.
