Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Demonoid site re-directing to malware now.

for those who care about such things:

"Last week the latest of Demonoid’s difficulties turned out to be caused by a massive DDoS attack which initially crippled the site and then took it completely offine.
What that attack is, or was, remains unclear, but today even more problems are becoming apparent.

On July 1 and then again today Aug 2, the domain entries for Demonoid.me were updated and now the URL is redirecting to straight to adverts.
Unfortunately – and we presume this is something Demonoid’s admin would be completely against – some of those adverts contain a virus and other malware."
