Re: [Newsgroups] great - dognzb now gone too ?

said by saitoh183:

but this is just good for those that have an account and that want to login

I'm sure the Admin at Dognzb really appreciates it (since it defeats his intention).

Say, you didn't happen to use the same handle on Dognzb as you did here.....did you?

Hey, separate subject. Any word on whether or not takedowns decreased since this all happened? I wonder, with all the indexers shutting their doors if they didn't cut off the same service that's issuing takedowns.

It's been speculated they could be running their own modified version of Newznab in their automated take down effort.

Yes my handle is the same...it doesnt really defeat his intentions since you cant really use it to signup since there isnt any signup possible, but for those that have an account already but arent currently logged in, this information is useful. When your already logged in, you are brought directly to the page that states this information.

So, it doesn't really matter what we say or do.

His intention was to decrease traffic. There are probably hundreds of people constantly loading the Dognzb site in hopes of it either being open to new sign ups or word on any invites. These lookie loos are generating alot of unwanted traffic.

Considering the fact that the guy generating the takedowns used to RUN A PUBLIC INDEXER (and got sued, and lost), I doubt it.

Seems pesky questions on message boards didn't cause this.

When someone's intention is to hide the site from casual browsers and then you point and say "HEY - OVER HERE!!!!" it kind of does subvert their intention.

well the big issue is to many try and become VIP's it will flag a site with paypal. that seems to be the big issue right now the payment stuff and paypal shutting down or locking the NZB sites accounts.

This is all about money.

the copyright guys like I said 200 times already joined all the sites themselves weeks ago if not months. It's to late now no use to pretend they're hiding from them now.

Hell I'd say they paid for VIP too so they could see the payee when you pay to report it to paypal.

Not the point. A site owner took steps to hide his site from casual viewers. People who use the site should respect that. Not because it'll do anything to improve this situation, but because that's what the site owner wanted.

If i didnt say it someone would have....if he really wanted to hide it, he wouldnt have its up at the top of the page letting us know what to do or he would have mentioned that we should not reveal it. other nzb sites have done the same and they did not post the information on there site. Anyways..there is no point in arguing this any farther, what's done is done...
