Thread: newsgroups = more rare stuff or not ?

  1. #1
    i am mainly a bt user and although i have access to big trackers etc i can't seem to find rare applications (like 0day apps&automotive software)

    I was wondering how newsgroup fare in otherwise "rare" pirated software?

    Files go back as 2 years based on retention on some popular service providers.

    You don't need a Usenet subscription to see what's available. Just see if what you're looking for is out there.

    torrents are shit apps, rips, etc that are upload by whoever.... usenet is uploaded by scene standards, so yea everything is better and you can find what you want here. WTF are you looking for anyways?

    If I were you, I wouldn't listen to anyone's opinions about either one. Both have their pros and cons. Just do what Skiz suggested and search for what you're wanting. You can find old and rare material through either method(although with my experiences, I have found more rare files through DDL than Usenet and Bittorrent, so if you can't find what you're looking from either of those then give a look around the various DDL forums).

    erm...

    scene trackers have scene releases
    p2p trackers have nonscene releases

    usenet has both - so I don't think you can say usenet has better quality apps than bt....

    Umm.. "whoever" can upload to Usenet as well. There is plenty of shady content on Usenet.

    I agree with your testimonial DDL forums are the best for rare files/applications.. From what i discovered last days BT more or less equals with usenet material.
