Re: thepiratebay.org

How a search engine finds its results is not important, as you can find each of the same results in regular search engines, because they also search torrent search engines. Lots of pirates and malware providers register their domains in google, bing, yandex etc. and many just hope it gets crawled. R...

Re: Discord, legitimate chat or cyberbully haven?
