Hey, all you kids who are still wiping the tears from your eyes over Oink’s demise–as predicted, another torrent site has risen from the ashes and will try to make your sense of entitlement grow all over again. It’s called Boink (apparently it’ll be at boink.cd), it’ll be hosted by BitTerrorist haven The Pirate Bay, and it’ll launch sometime next week, albeit with a list of records that’s much smaller than Oink’s. It’ll even have the insufferable pink cuteness about it, judging by the photo above, but–
Oh no–it won’t be invite-only and super-duper secret! Will the promise of a “new Oink” be sullied by said new site’s open gates? Let’s ask the denizens of TorrentFreak what they think!
It wont be OiNK. There will just be hoards of transcoded, non-seeded, mislabled, shit uploaded. This is why OiNK existed, as a reliable source of good quality music, which ‘BOiNK’ won’t be.
BOiNK will be nothing like OiNK, except maybe in looks.
OiNK was what it was because it was an invite only site with lots of rules, even though it was fairly easy to get an invite.
high likelyhood of this ex-OiNKer not uploading anything there.
Who? What is the benefit of reporting a transcode? Some other knob is going to come along in 15 seconds and upload it again anyway. You won’t be able to stop anyone uploading shit, cos there is no threat of getting banned and the shit-storm will continue. And if it is public that means any form of ratio-type monitoring system is worthless. Therefore there will be just as many seeds as on any other public tracker, which is fuck-all for obscure/little-known music, which is was OiNK thrived in.
Any ‘real’ Oinker wont use this. Its just going to be Pirate Bay II. Most who care have already joined another private site. If anything this tarnishes OiNKs name.
As much as I loved it, you have to accept OiNK is dead. Get over it everyone. Go somewhere else for your music. We didn’t try and resurrect Lennon did we?
And that’s only from the first 20 comments! God, I love the Internet.
