Has anyone noticed that suprnova.org, most popular place for torrents, is now charging for a membership? I am very out done by this.

Why would they do this, they have enough pop ups. :mad:

It's .com and .net that charge for memberships. As far as I'm aware .org is still membership free. As far as pop-ups, I've never noticed any...but I do have Safari's block pop-up option selected! ;) :)

I'd check and make sure your going to suprnova.org, and not suprnova.com or suprnova.net, both of them charge membership I believe.

you can usually fix that by either leaving it blank, or looking for a unique word in the file name.

.org! .com and .net are scammers. I use un-rar and havn't had a problem. Why do they rar those things? THey aren't smaller, is that the VCD format?

SuprNova has not been accessable during last 24 hours. This is because of a server issue. We are working on the problem and are trying to fix it as fast as we can. That is why SuprNova is right now running on backup servers, meaning search is down and it might take a little longer for the site to load.

We are sorry for the trouble, but keep in mind that we are trying to fix the problem as fast as we can!

It would be wastelanded because I cannot see how suprnova.org can be legal at all, if there is a legal way/reason to use it, please enlighten me.

Don't forget Freeware and also Recorded Live Concerts! You can record them and place them in internet with no one coming after you for it. :D

Though I wouldn't put those on Suprnova. It's like saying you like using the Black Market to purchase artwork. Totally the wrong outlet.

They were labeling all BitTorrent as vile and horrible, but even Suprnova has legal stuff on it.

I think automatically labelling a conversation about a site like suprnova as illegal and wasteland material is irrational. Just as you CAN download pirated stuff on suprnova, you CAN commit fraud or find child porn with a computer. Why don't we all ban computers then?

It's Bush moralist extremism at its best. Even the "illegal" stuff ends up be a "try before buy" affair for a lot of folks.

we are just gonna have to put up with illegal downloading of media. it is inevitable. no way around it, without totally restricting our rights on our own possessions.
