The best torrent sites I use are the ones that are specialized in a particular type of content i want, they organize their material and they have detailed relevant information on each torrent which is relevant to the type of content in a way that TPB could never do.
Well how nice for you. Meanwhile the 99% of people that don't have connections or large sums of money for invites or file lockers have to rely on more public means. I'd love to get on one of the HD tv/movie private sites, but the ones that are good are impossible to access without knowing someone or paying through the nose.
And I'm not quite sure what information TPB lacked. I can't ever recall downloading a mislabeled torrent, and the descriptions always covered source, quality, contents, file names/sizes, and most even have detailed encoding information or scene readmes for software.
