Once was the greatest torrent site ever. Had almost every torrent you could want without any leechers and a forum where request were really easy. Got shut down by the CRIA (Canadian equivalent of RIAA
) because demonoid's hosting company was being a pussy, even though demonoid didn't actually host anything illegal or do anything wrong(see torrent
Dude A: Hey im downloading a new version of linux from demonoid!
Dude B: Wrong! Demonoid doesn't actually host any files besides .torrent. They basically give your computer directions where to get it.
Dude A: So they don't have any files, and therefore, haven't done anything illegal?
Dude B: Yep.
