Torrent Site Status

Torrent Site Status: "The big reason for the recent witch hunts is because many bittorrent clients are slow to make changes to the BT protocol to decentralize bittorrent.

E-mail the author of the clients you use to add the 'get_peers/peers' extension to their clients. This removes the need for trackers beyond a single connection. (this means, if a tracker goes down, your transfers continue at full speed without issue)

Send the e-mail, as this will not happen until enough pressure is placed on the authors of BT clients. Force bittorrent to evolve!

XBT Client BitComet are the only clients that support this so far."

This referred extension seems to be popular in public tracker but banned in private tracker.
