SN was one of the largest (and most watched) torrent sites on the net.

I'm not sad because of the piracy issues, I'm sad because it was an Internet landmark. It's kind of like those "Closeout Video" stores in Times Square that sell bootleg Genesis games for $5, except you could get them for free on SuprNova.

Suprnova raised the profile of Bit Torrent, and for that I hate it! Recently, the general populace hasn't even been higher up the ladder than Kazaa users.

Seriously, I'm glad it's gone. Anytime a file sharing network gets too high-profile it gets overrun by idiots, exposed to the popular media, overrun by even bigger idiots, sued out of existence and promptly replaced before anyone with any sense even notices an interruption.

Hopefully now the fuss over Bit Torrent will calm a bit, but sadly I doubt it. I'm glad it's gone though and I hope it stays dead. It gave BitTorrent a bad name. Now I can get back to torrenting game patches and Linux ISOs.

Suprnova wasn't a tracker, only an index of .torrent links.

Torrent = illegal?
:confused:
Torrents aren't necessary illegal, but the contents of the torrent can be. If you're torrenting a linux .iso, then it's going to be legal. If you're torrenting the newest rip of Colonivilizonquest III, then it's obviously illegal.

In other words, you were fed up with him and his posting, so you asked him to leave? Or what?

No. He directly asked us to nuke his account.

Just to cut all the crap rumors floating around about certain people waging war on the site and all that jazz, here is the exact PM he fired off to many of the admins. First off, we're not about to destroy any evidence, let alone making mince-meat of the forums by removing over 21K posts (7K posts plus 3 x quote/reply factor)...

I need my account deleted immediately on both AlienSoup and WTF!

I have been the victim of identity theft...I need you to shut down my account, and find a way to delete EVERY post that I have ever made here. Somebody is after me, and is framing me in order to make life threatening things about a woman. I don't care if it doesn't matter, just shut down my account now! My machine has been hacked, and the FBI feels I have committed assault.

P.S. I NEED THIS DONE BY TONIGHT!

That's crazy. Or Stager is. I figured him/her(w/e) to be a lot of things,but I never thought of him/her(again, w/e) taking slow dance lessons in the BIG HOUSE.

FBI....my ass.
Maybe Mom found their ten year old on line at WTF.com,hmmm....
