    now their time has come.
    btjunkie.org shut down.
    that´s really a loss as they were a great site to upload and getting the torents scraped.

    Sorry for their loss, but I almost exclusively use TPB. I see no better alternative.

    Well, looks like another site has gone down. On the good side TPB and demonoid appear to be pretty resilient and I'm hoping they'll stay up at least for the near future :p

    yes, from the amount of traffic TPB is the best.
    but they are way too strict.
    would be better when TPB would be down instead of btjunkie.
    n btjunkie it was so easy to upload and to get your stuff scraped from there.
    if TPB would be down it would be good anyway because then the torrent users would go to other torrent websites.
    and any other torrent website (maybe apart from extratorrent) is easier to upload then TPB.
