This is a blow for me. I know most people don't think of torrent trackers as communities, especially if their only exposure to torrents is the pirate bay or some other public tracker. But What.cd was always different. Born out of Oink's Pink Palace, this was possibly the best tracker I've ever been on, with more formats, more active users, and more depth and variety than any tracker you could name.
I was a member for over 7 years, not quite as long as I've been here at Codex, but still, almost as long. I was introduced to countless musical artists that I never would have found otherwise.
It is a sad day for the music community.
Discuss torrents, What.cd, or music in general.
