I'm a torrent guy, wanting to make the switch to newsgroups. (want faster downloads, dont want to worry about ratios etc..)
I'm just wondering about quality of the files I'm getting. I really liked demonoid because there would be pages and pages of comments for each download, with reputable users saying either:
A) it works great!, virus free.. etc..
B) didnt work for me, has a virus, sound cuts out, sync is off, etc..etc..
I could base my decisions on stuff like that.
Is there something like this with newsgroups that I'm not aware of? How do I know I'm not downloading crap?
Another thing I liked about torrents is that there are divx movies that are ripped by a guy called axxo. He uploads every new release, and every movie is 10/10 quality... basically if you see that axxo upped it, you know u can trust it.
I'm looking for something similar, but in newsgroups. How will I know which NZB to download? do crap files get removed somehow?
For example, the NZB section on this site is great. People post them, and everyone gets to discuss the quality.. thats what I'm looking for. But this site is obviously limited, compared to whats out there.
Can anyone help a newb out? =)
