    Hi I was just wondering why for some new games etc why can I not find it when I search on newsbin (I am a full paying member on there and giganews)

    but when I do a search on a torrent I find a few of these (latest releases) but they are nowhere to be seen on newsgroups (and I have about 25 groups added anyone care to tell me why as I am very new to the newsgroup scene and probably haven't done something right

    I've wondered myself but no idea. Easier to create, greater exposure, bandwidth ?

    cause NewsBin's editors hafta sort thru a huge amount of material before its posted on the site, they hafta edit the nfos to remove 'illegal' info etc.

    Oh yea and sometimes minutes after something is pre'd by a pirate grp, its leaked by someone that is also a torrent uploader or provides access for a torrent uploader. It all comes down to who gets access to it first; be that BT or Usenet.
