No, it would be invalid. Hence the problem. Those links aren't to
torrent files at all, they are html links which leads me to believe the
site is broken atm.

Could there be a reason for making torrents that have XML contents?
Nothing comes to mind, but I'm just checking with y'all.

I have looked at a few other torrents on that site that we are not
protecting and gotten the same problem. There may be a problem with the
entire snarf-it site. See if you can get a real copy of the movie from
snarf-it or if all the torrents are broken at this time.

Upon opening the file using a text editor, I found that it's not a
torrent file after all:

        <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
        <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
        
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd
<http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd> ">
        <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml
<http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml> " xml:lang="en" lang="en">
         <head>
          <title>404 - Not Found</title>
         </head>
         <body>
          <h1>404 - Not Found</h1>
         </body>
        </html>

I'm pretty sure this is a torrent that I made, because I have one with
that same exact name. I tried opening it with a BT client and it opened
just fine. My theory is that this is something that Snarf-It does when
it finds a fake.

        Hey guys,

         

        The top 15 results for "The Simpsons Movie" are all invalid
torrents on Snarf-it.org. Could someone please look into this? We
won't be getting any credit for these torrents since they're aren't
downloadable. I attached a sample torrent.

         

         

         

        Thanks,
