And there i thought they were closing their registrations for security reasons. Thought they were low down scum for having a pay2leech subscription system? Well now you have to become a VIP (costs $36 for 3 months) just to create a new account. Now THAT'S low.
Edit: for people who can't read the whole topic:
IRC Topic: 6500+ TORRENTs Site: UP TRACKER: UP Signups: OPEN(through VIP only, firstname.lastname@example.org for details) VIP: OPEN Invites: CLOSED | Please do not PM staff without permission
At least at sct you have to social engineer yourself into paying somebody to invite you. TL cuts out the middle man.
