Seems like there is a problem with the entire snarf-it site. I tried
opening other torrents (from music, TV, and software) and all have that
same content. The forum is offline so there's no chatters about the
site's issue.

        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
<> ">
                <html xmlns="
<> " xml:lang="en" lang="en">
                  <title>404 - Not Found</title>
                  <h1>404 - Not Found</h1>

        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 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.
