What if i told You What Is Going Down .. ?

Post by nonspin » Fri Aug 31, 2018 5:36 am

What if i told you, that the developers/owners cannot release, patch or actively engage in Support anymore ? .. For legal reasons.

NL is very unique to all the others', because it's a 1-Stop-Service, literally.
- fast NewsGroup/BinaryAccess
- Software that includes a SuperSearch/SuperLeech featurem.

Combining the two was the dumbest move they could make, because the SS/SL
is NOT technically indexing - the algorithm actively looks for "the good stuff".
.. and because it's a paid service - it's fraud, Conspiracy to commit <insert anything here>.

Legally, from both sides - it's a standoff, because such legal battle is very expensive for
both sides. But i am very sure that some sort of "Cease and Desist" has been issued.

The irony, though and the only reason why the service hasn't been shut down for good,
is the fact the scene went "obfuscate" - rendering the SuperSearch useless/obsoleet.
There's your reason why there's no "update" or "new beta".

Technically, there is no need for an update anymore, because no algorithm can get
figure out the obfuscation. It's like un-frying an egg. So SS/SL are destined to be removed
anyway...

result:
NL can survive (with both arms tied behind their backs) .. Chicken!
"Teh Law" inadvertently witnessed the death of the SuperSearch algorithm .. Chalk -> Win!

I totally understand the NL-Guys, because there is NO way they could win.
It would draw way to much attention (remember newzbin?!) .. it's a about survival.
Since one revenue stream is active .. why risk it ?

nonspin

p.s.: The even cannot issue a statement like this - the explain "things", because it would
gain too much attention and THAT could force "Teh Law" to act ..

Good luckm guys ;D

What is this - fanfic?

They charge a monthly fee for software that is never updated. There's no excuse for that.

They really do have some explaining to do tbh. Maybe there's a new announcement behind the corner?

Sad to say this is more than likely and I do miss Newzbin. :(

Everything you say is more than likely true.

er...

I'm pretty sure I pay for
"Unlimited NewsLeecher Software"
"Unlimited SuperSearch & SuperLeech"
"Unlimited Usenet Access"

The last works splendidly. The SuperSearch is eroding badly. I'm not sure what the first is, at least wrt "Unlimited". Can you at least fix the SuperSearch Indexer? Yeah, I know, from the OP you can't touch it, but new stuff shows - you are losing the old, previously indexed stuff. WTH?

TIA
