Kickass Replacement
« on: September 18, 2016, 12:51:13 AM »
Pity that Kickass Torrents is no more. Them pesky feds finally caught up with them  :Whiteflag:

It may be true that one really should not torrent ...  :Whistle: ... but it came in handy when there was a movie that I just wanted to see ... or some .flac music files of some albums that had far better quality than YT or other streaming service just could not match ...

I don't suppose anyone could recommend a (mostly) safe, uselful replacement for Kickass ... whenever I get in a crunch and just need an unauthorized file or two ... ?

With Peerblock is this safe? (Just wondering). Do programs like that do anything? :Study:

Hey, all!

This looks like it may be of interest to somebody.....I haven't read it yet and have never used torrents, but there may be some good news here.
