Exactly, taking down KAT is like taking out poachers of Rhinos. The root cause is not being addressed, KAT just supplies the service for which there is a demand.

No damn Sherlock! You don't say! I saw how terrible the others are and missed KAT even more... it drove me to set up Sonarr and Couchpotato again.

Extra Torrent is a poor replacement for KAT. It doesn't let you sort by seeds unless you pay $5 a month to be a VIP. I suspect the owners of the site are clinically retarded - their users are generally people with an extremely low propensity to spend money on digital goods and services. KAT made millions from advertising, so I don't get why Extra need to charge for a VIP service.

Fortunately I don't torrent much, and almost always for family and not myself. KAT going down doesn't affect me much.

I would actually like piracy to be all but eliminated through the removal of public torrent sites. My concern is that piracy has been a driver for better legal services and without it the offerings might decline in value. And I would sorely miss being able to say f**k you to Ster Kinekor by downloading HD copies of films that either haven't or just have hit local cinemas. Few things rustle my jimmies like delayed film releases. As a matter of principle I never see them in cinema.

Judging by the various threads on many many MyBB blokes here are "piracy lovers". Myself included

Missing KAT.:(

How do you stop the adverts playing in a new tab from Piratebay?
