So I was the moderator that posted the "All accounts are automatically auto-approved at the moment", but I think there was a misunderstanding. The "Auto-Approval" is for their UPLOADS to be allowed, instead of going into a queue where a moderator has to verify everything about the upload.
Sure a few bad uploads slip through but they are quickly removed.
I know there are other sites where they require active logins, as well as uploading X amounts of torrents a month, but they're also FLOODED with duplicates from people just trying to hit their quota to keep their accounts.
We like to keep our uploads on the side of Quality over Quantity. I have personally removed about 40 duplicate torrents today, and countless others in the previous days.
As for the topics of invites/how people are joining, We have a lottery for new signups (As well as users who are inviting others). I can look in the backend of the website and see how EACH and EVERY account was created. Yours for example was created during a period of open sign-ups.
You have very strong opinions about how the site should be run and I understand that, but there is a reason we are the largest site for this type of content.
