    i just saw this on usenet, it might be wise to be careful until further notice.

    I can't find this same torrent in other searches, so wonder if it is really a DMCA trap?"

    Go go gadget paranoia!
    Just kidding.
    They gotta make an example out of someone. Millions of people download stuff, every now and then 1 gets sued. [sh]it happens. Wouldn't worry too much about it.

    It's sad because I really loved that site, but it does seem pretty iffy these days. However, it's also worth noting that downloading anything that soon after theater release is incredibly risky. It's only a matter of time before you get one if you aren't careful.

    people should also use block lists to improve safety. not guaranteed safety, but better than nothing.
