Demonoid Will Come Back Soon, Rebuild in Progress

 

After more than a year of downtime Demonoid?s website is again showing signs of life. A notice displayed on the website of the infamous BitTorrent tracker reveals that the people behind the site are planning a comeback. Talking to TorrentFreak Demonoid?s admin confirms the resurrection without revealing a time-frame or any other specifics. While many questions remain unanswered, former Demonoid users are getting excited.

 

As the single largest semi-private BitTorrent tracker that ever existed, Demonoid offered a home to millions of file-sharers.

This changed abruptly August last year when a series of troubled events took the site offline. When it was still down after a year, many had given up hope that it would ever return.

Today there?s a glimmer of hope to report to estranged Demonoid members, as the site is preparing for a glorious comeback. TorrentFreak contacted the Demonoid team via its demonoid.com email address where the Demonoid team confirmed the plans.

?I can?t give you any specifics at the moment, but yeah, we are planning to bring the site back,? we were told.

A follow-up request, for more details and whether the same people are behind the site, remains unanswered for now. However, a landing page on Demonoid.com and Demonoid.me brings more hope.

?We will rebuild! Coming back soon, please check back later. Thanks for your visit!,? it reads, with a Bitcoin donation option below.

Isn't this the second or third time they've "come back"?

By a small group of Anonymous skids that we're going to use it to lure people into downloading crap in an attempt to create a bot net.

The only reason I know this is because my niece has an ex who thinks he's a bad-ass anon and always talked trash about how Demonoid was junk and useless. To show how ignorant the idiot is, he kept bragging about how he is a hardcore Linux user and I asked: "What distro do you use? I use Ubuntu and Mint on occasion". He never heard of either and quickly changed the subject.

Anyway, back in June he was suddenly mentioning Demonoids return and how excited he was. Asked for a link and it was soo obvious what they were doing that I started cracking up. Called him out on it and he deactivated his Facebook lol.

It wasn't a .com or .me. Can't remember what it was, but it was a huge fail. Should find something about it through Google.
