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
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,
