I just had an idea and I'm not sure how it would work initially but if anyone has heard of Demonoid or used member only sites they'd get what I mean.

Demonoid close the site down occasionally due to bandwidth use and they only allow people to enter who have membership, which they can only have if they've been invited. The invitations are given by fellow members and any misuse of the invitations is strictly stamped on.

Can I invite my friend to Demonoid?
You sure can! You can access the "invite" feature under your control panel. The link is on the upper right corner of every page .. This will generate a code that the receiver will have to input when they register. There is a set number of invites so use them wisely.


Nothing on Demoind turns up on any search engines and it is totally underground in the true sense of the word.

My suggestion is that DU could migrate the site to operate in a similar way to how Demoid works when they limit the entrance to the site for members only.

Thoughts...?

In case anyone's missed it, this LBN article is what made me concerned enough to come up with the idea: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...
