And what happened to freedom of information? Or is that illegal too now?

The TPB tracker is now down, permenantly. The only trackers you will get there now are third party. If you want the pwn, use magnets. Peers for speed. As long as the ratios are good we shouldnt have too much of a compromise.

DHT is much better in theory, however, one question i have for it is whether or not we can tell what downloads actually have seeders and leachers. One thing i'm sure of is that when a site will tell you this general poplulation estimate, it's from all of the trackers involved. In turn this may cut down on the amount of torrents there are, granted that if it has no more seeders, it will be removed from the list.

I have also noticed that i can no longer select which files i want to download when i open the torrent, as now its a magnet. Im using utorrent and i suppose that feature will have to be added later, although i am using the latest beta i will probabally have a long wait. What you said about ammounts of seeds and leeches, you wont really know untill you open the magnet and read your seeds/leeches in your torrent app. Damn shame but progress usually has compromises.
