Default tracker in utorrent

It would be like DoS attack against this tracker if thousands peers did the same thing like you.

Interesting thought. As you know, moogly, I followed your advice and did exactly what I suspect Satz is up to: Replacing TPB with OBT everywhere. The upshot of this tedious activity is exactly what Satz requested: the OBT is now on every torrent. I assume that thousands of peers over time will do the same. Does this equate to a DoS attack on OBT? That should be interesting...

Of course not, the main public trackers (like OBT or PBT) are strong and can carry the load. And in your own case, you were alone.

But imagine if, by default, it's hardcoded in µT and thousands peers using µT add dozens of torrents with the same unique tracker!

Maybe OBT could carry the load but would it be the case for smaller public trackers with smaller servers? Surely not...

That's why autoloading trackers into µT has been denied, to avoid tracker overload cases.
