The first week happens to be the exact same day as the QA team tested
interdiction on black donnellys 3/19. Our internal test was 100%
effective as well, that was the first week we saw really good results.
I do not know what happened the second week, we don't have a recent
interdiction test. It is possible from the way the data looks that they
tested exclusively from mininova the first week, and from snarf-it the
second week, and we were not hitting snarf-it. We will need to be
running interdiction tests on Monday.

For their 2 week data:

* Black Donnelly's on BT actually produced better results on week
1 than week 2. On the attached BT sheet, I've highlighted in yellow all
the ones that were good downloads. Notice that they all came in week 2.
Week 1 was 100% effective. Week 2 was 30% effective. Without knowing
the infohash, I can't determine if we had interdiction active for all
the torrents they attempted.
* There ARE several instances where they grabbed CD1 of a file,
but no corresponding CD2. Those are highlighted in red on the attached
eDonkey sheet.
* They're NOT attempting only the most recent season. An example
is their "Office", "House MD", and "Law and Order" tests below.
