Yesterday, a notice was added to the front page of Newzbin, saying in effect they arn't accepting any new paying members (don't know if any new editors).
Something to do with too much stress on their machinery, or too many emails from noobs.
Since it is a pay service, if they're getting too much stress, sounds like they need to either up their rates and build more/faster servers or settle for less profit.
If they can't answer all the emails, seems like they need more editors/supervisors to do the work.
Either, sounds like a dodge to me. I'd make a prediction, but I'll leave that up to everyone else.
