Demonoid
« on: August 07, 2012, 11:04 AM »
Hi there,

I was just wondering about some people's views on demonoid getting shut down... I used the site to gte things BEFORE I could bu them and then delete the data. However now its shut down I won't know when new books I like will be out (always uploaded by one user), or even if I should bother buying an artists new album...

What are your views?

PS. Could anyone let me know if the user yamlugue1980 uploads on any other site than demonoid?

I just keep hoping it comes back.  It has come back from previous shut downs, but it's not looking good now.

It won't be coming back because the Feds shut it down.

I gather the address is or was up for sale.  It isn't coming back at least at that address. 

Wonder if that worked well for the Ukraine to shut it down to please the US and I also wonder if they got what they wanted by kissing up to the US. Knowing our Government, not very likely.  They don't even know how to make their own happy these days.  Nov is going to be interesting around here.

Psst try ExtraTorrent.com and there is a topic with other choices around here on the board too.  However since my muscle relaxer is kicking in [finally the knee has stopped that toothache feeling] I think I will bow out of looking for it.  Just search demonoid and it should pop up.

Sez who?  :laugh:
As far as I know, the feds/Dept. of Justice have only shut-down megaupload (due to, allegedly, money-laundering) and you know how long ago that was.  When I try to open demonoid.com, .me, .ph, etc. I just get the message:
This webpage is not available
The server at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed.
and
{browser} could not load the webpage because You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login took too long to respond.

It's real easy to blame the U.S. for everything but when I tried to find out the reason for demonoid's unavailability, the general talk 'out there' seemed to be it was the Ukrainian government's decision. 
But because we only know what we're told, wouldn't you agree we should always keep an open mind when we hear something, especially when it's negative?

Thanks for telling me about 4shared, but it shows she hasn't been on for over a year. The same as all the other sites I've manage to find her on. And when I send her a message she never sends reply, so I've resigned myself to not being able to find her. :( . Again thanks v much.

Side point I think Demonoid got takenen down due to pressure by Ukraine gov. In response to an upcoming visit from us and their standpoint on downloading. However so far there had been no legal action and I firmly believe that they will reappear in the form of another site where I might hopefully go find yamalugue1980 again.

Says anyone who actually bothers to research the subject before posting ignorant drivel. Facts: The servers were raided and taken offline. The Demonoid admins were arrested in Mexico. The domain names were confiscated and then put on auction. Does that sound like they're coming back?

Megaupload was taken down because of alleged willful copyright infringement, not because of "money laundering". The Feds have no legal basis to pursue the case because Kim Dotcom is not a US citizen and Megaupload is not a US company. The New Zealand courts are still deliberating his extradition case to the US but so far they're on his side and they're gradually releasing his frozen assets despite US pressure because they're a sovereign nation, and not an extension of the US of A. Get your facts straight.

Ok you two. Let's remember that we are all supposed to be friendly here. Arguments are fine but let's fight clean okay?

Mayabelle, you said "Sez who?". That is almost guaranteed to get you a few snarky responses. Try to remember that readers cannot see your face to gauge your intent here.  Unless they have some psychic powers.  :D But knowing you like I do it cracked me up.

Nouda, you said "posting ignorant drivel." Well that's a little harsh but again since I know you it cracked me up too. I personally had to quit reading about Demonoid due to my grief after the 1st day. I'm sure I'm not the only one.  :(

I've seen somewhere that some of the demonoid trackers are back. They may be reviving themselves slowly but there is now a bleep where there was once silence. :)
Read well :-)

Yes, that is true the demonoid trackers are now back online.  I think the site maybe resurrected sometime soon.

OOOh, big yay!

I had just been thinking about the "big" guy (demonoid) and thought I'd check to see if there were any whispers of his resurrection.
Good, no great news.  :dance:

there is a site de.vu that is using the same format as demonoid used. and it is kinda up and running. Now I would need to remember my old sign in and what not if it is being resurrected.

And that's why I thought to put it out here. Too bad, it would be great if it did get brought back online again !!

Just read on torrentfreak that Demonoid is coming back online with the same site admins. And when I went back to my old shortcut it does indeed say they are rebuilding.
Torrentfreak and wiki also chat about a few site changes and whether or not all the old accounts would be still available.

stay tuned I guess.

Just a bit of trivia!
