In this episode of the The BitTorrent Saga, ComicSearch learns A Very Important Lesson: When the cease-and-desist notices are flying, it’s probably not a good idea for a comic tracker to draw attention to itself by sending an “open letter” to one of the publishers making the demands.
TorrentFreak reports that after ComicSearch administrator “Deicist” sent an email to Marvel in support of fellow comic tracker Z-Cult FM, the site received a response — but not the one it apparently expected:
I am going to ask nicely first, and request that you please remove all Marvel comics from the tracker and ask that your members refrain from putting up new torrents containing Marvel comics. You are on notice that if you continue, it will be at your own risk.
TorrentFreak has what’s reportedly an exchange of emails between Deicist and an unnamed Marvel representative that ends, more or less, with ComicSearch pledging to remove the publisher’s titles from its tracker.
