Last of the big name torrent sites to be toppled by the MPAA. Kudos to them for staying operative while being sued, Supernova did not even manage that.
people ruin everything....

Yeah, I just saw that. What a shame. It was the best place to find audiobooks.

Also, I just love the huge poster the MPAA slapped over the site. It's like the Nazi's putting up a swastika poster to cover subversive graffiti. I don't get the point of being a total jerk like that. It just makes me like them less!

Such rebels. They let you squeeze off a few free pirated audiobooks before they got shut down. They're like Rosa Parks fighting against THE MAN, aren't they?

LOL that's one funny poster on the Loki Torrent page!

I didn't know the MPAA had such sense of humor

eXeem dropped spyware after version 0.21

Get your facts straight. Hopefully you don't represent the majority of the Mac community.

Why you get so pissy over one little comment about spyware?

Because it's these types of comments that facilitate Apple propaganda

Wow, I've been using torrentreactor.net for a month or so. What was the scam? Using the name? The torrent files were legit, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Maybe it was full of PC spyware. Luckily, Mac users are immune.
