  • Your faq doesn't explain what *NUKE* means. If *NUKE* means destroyed then why should it ever be seen? ie. the torrent should have been removed from the site. Is *NUKE* a recommendations for site admins not to download the file? Is *NUKE* added to a torrent title by the uploader or somebody else? The same question goes for the other *xxx* labels.
