The Pirate Bay cancels BOiNK The Pirate Bay has announced that it has canceled its plans to launch BOiNK, a replacement to the recently shut down OiNK. The Pirate Bay will be leaving the revival of thousands of music albums to more specialized private BitTorrent trackers instead.
TBP canceled its plans because several new sites sprung up to replace OiNK just days after it was taken down. As Brokep , and admin at TBP said, “There are so many people opening up new music trackers right now so there’s no need for us to go and do that as well.”

"It’s simply better for us not to interfere with the music lovers that want their special ratio trackers for only scene releases and so forth. That’s not our specialty! Each to do what they’re best at and what they love the most,” he added.

Some other music trackers, including what.CD, waffles.fm, and STmusic have seen a huge traffic jump since the fall of OiNK, with triple digit increases.

This is what makes them one of the best torrent sites available because they respect the rest of their peers. I hope these folks that seem have some enjoyment off taken down sites like Oink and Demonoid catch some serious arthritis in their knuckles for all their crap lol.

Ahh...how weird of The Pirate Bay.
It seems like they would've already had BOiNK up by this time, but I guess not.
However, they are in enough "trouble" as it is already, so the decision to not bring BOiNK up is probably a good one. I mean, suprNova was one thing (it being one of the most badass torrent sites) but OiNK...prerelease and hard-to-find music (which is still great IMO but doesn't exactly cut it, and prerelease can easily be found on other places anyways).
I'd just say smooth move on their part.

@qazwiz:

You aren't into music? How could that be possible? Go to pandora.com right now and type in, i dunno "Cordovan" or something and listen for a while. (Good) music is good for your soul.
