Another useful site shutdown. With seemingly no explanation although with a subtle warning:
Stay away from fake ExtraTorrent websites and clones.
Why is this happening? Who is behind this? Why shut down without an explanation? Did we not matter?
ET was indeed a place to be.
ExtraTorrent has shut down permanently
My latest network check: 95.1Mbps download, 9.6Mbps upload. Via #GoogleOn
Speed test on Pixel using Google Wifi app connecting to Google Wifi device.
Torrenthound.com, why are you closed!!! Tell me the reason. Why are you closed.
A sad day it was. The day I could no longer search. Dumbfounded, confused, I tried repeatedly and each time no results displayed. Something is clearly wrong and I was bothered. Only on the desperate last search did I see the words. So accustomed to seeing a list of results that on first view I didn’t bother to read. The brief and sweet send off read:
Torrentz will always love you. Farewell.
Search results returned a simple message: Torrentz will always love you. Farewell.
Returning to the homepage it was clear that the message was there all along and I simply refused to believe it. Is it rational and mentally sane to cry over a website? I don’t care. I nearly did.
Torrentz was a free, fast and powerful meta-search engine combining results from dozens of search engines
Torrentz.eu shuts down referring to itself in past tense on its homepage.
The site shut down a couple of days ago. And I’m still in shock.
