BTJunkie Closed 2005-2012

Btjunkie.org decided to close down voluntarily today, February 5th, 2012 after 7 years of service.  Btjunkie was a popular site that used a web crawler (similar to google, yahoo etc.) to index torrents, and to be able to allow people to download the torrents.  The site had nearly 4,000,000 active torrents and 4k added daily.  The notice left on the site said,

This is the end of the line my friends. The decision does not come easy, but we’ve decided to voluntarily shut down. We’ve been fighting for years for your right to communicate, but it’s time to move on. It’s been an experience of a lifetime, we wish you all the best

For a replacement site, you can use www.bushtorrent.com or www.torrentreactor.net
