Re: Pirate Bay gets all the attention
said by r81984:Hello my name is david and I haven't gotten one yet.
I have never heard of anyone getting letters about downloading except from pirate bay trackers,...
said by r81984:Well as far as the 2:1 ratio, it seems when I just do a simple test of a show I miss I like to watch I get more hits on the A/V and malware from Miniova than TPB. For instance, I missed a mythbusters episode I wanted to see. All 4 sources from mininova.org were nothing but hosted torrent viruses. TPB had as least 2 that were not viruses or "torrented viruses" (if that's appropriate).
so your 2:1 ratio bullshit is garbage. Also I have never downloaded a virus from any tracker site let alone mininova.
Of course then again I still have a VCR and videotape, I guess I could have recorded the show for next time.
AFAIK, the 2:1 stands in my eyes based on a simple torrent tracker test of just a simple TV show. Another one was I wanted to watch was the knight rider 2008 episode. Again, another night I just missed the show I went to mininova because TPB didn't have it as of yet. Out of the 8 trackers I looked up 8 were nothing but hosted torrent viruses. I waited about a week later and TPB on it's first search and successful download I was able to watch the show with the first one.
So in my eyes (or as least here) mininova seems to be just about a complete miss to me. It's ratio with me is 2:1 based on attempts tried. I got more success on TPB than I have with mininova.

| || |said by David:The reason is that some torrent on mininova.com are infected with virus a spyware downloader or trojan virus. There are many who have been banned from uploading porn or other forbidden stuff not allowed by the sites rule. So to get revenge it makes sense for them to upload infected torrent to infect as many people as possible.
I hate to say this but I have picked up more viruses on mininova than I have on TPB. It's almost a 2:1 ratio.
TPB (least to me) does a better job filtering the garbage.
These people are getting back at us in other ways as well...
We think they are mpaa slowing down our download when in truth its them leeching some of the torrent
on thepiratebay.org rarely anyone gets banned... you have to really piss off alot of folks... to lose your upload privilege.
on mininova.com getting banned is as easily as mislabeling a torrent, upload to wrong category, or an unworking torrent. many people love mininova and many hate it as well due to strict policy they enforce on users...
It's like walmart
