It'll be back. Their servers in the Ukraine were taken down under pressure from the US. This occurred suspiciously after a massive Ddos attack.

They will need to relocate as they have done before. I used it much more than my private trackers, so not enough credit to gain invites.

Torrents are pretty much of a necessity for any foreigner living in Korea. It is unfortunate Demonoid went down. There are still lots of others like kat.ph

I have no problems with famous actors and singers making a living, but when they make a thousand or ten thousand times as much as the average working person, I stop having ethical qualms about file sharing.

Demonoid was my go-to for movies & comics, it's a shame it's down, but this has happened before and it came back then so hopefully it will repeat that pattern.

BTW, if anyone has an invite for a good private comic book torrent site and is interested in a TVtorrents invite, PM me.

Nope, it won't return - been taken down permanently - demonoid operators have been arrested in Mexico.


There are other sites - good sites and better sites will still be made.
In the meanwhile, all this means is that people will simply switch to another torrent site.

I hear you. Try isohunt or thepiratebay.se. All the best with that.
