Re: nzbs.org accounts and dognzb accounts being sold

People paying for accounts, like this, are just morons.

Seriously why pay or join a nzb site anyway?

Keep up with a predb (orly or predb.me) site for release info or a release blog (sceper.ws, scnrsrc.me, rlslog.net), use a few easy search techniques (easy to find even obscurely named titles), and bingo you got what you want without any dependence on a nzb site that may shutdown and take your money.

People mostly pay so that their uh, Linux ISOs, show up automatically in their downloads folder every day and no effort is required.

There are free alternatives for those Linux distros too that require little to no effort.

Surely that's what I'm using mine for!

Most of the alternatives have mislabeled distros or are full of spammy distros. These sites have moderated and filter lists of distros.

Manually finding them isn't a problem, but automated feeds that require no effort are somewhat rare now.

That mostly works except now to make it harder on the mpaa, filenames are being disguised to make the content of files less obvious. So raw searches don't always pick that stuff up?

Still not a problem and easy to get around. I find releases that are disguised and quickly. NZBClub and Google can do wonders.

@Komal

Binsearch receives DMCA? You mean your provider. They will still show DMCA'd material despite your provider removed it, example UFC 143.

Nope, Binsearch receives and obeys DMCA requests.

For example, when Newzbin2 and Nzbmatrix went down, I was testing several search engines on my own.

Binsearch didn't have any entries for a couple of movies even though there were many files posted, they only started showing entries for those movies 1-2 months after they had been posted, maybe after takedown requests stopped.

And unfortunately, without a big community, there's no longer any way to easily share information on bad quality rips, incompletes etc. A bunch of smaller communities won't really work that well.

At least we're not back to grabbing headers, because that was fine when servers had 100 day retetion but downloading 1000 days worth of headers is just insane.

Just for grins and giggles, get all of the headers for a.b.hdtv.german. There should only be around 1.8 billion or so.........

Well try it.

Then try it for 10 groups.

Then 10 more.

Etc.
