Hey guys, I am sure you know the feeling when you look for some download link just to finally find it and realize, the file has been deleted and you can’t use the link anymore.
I know this very well and that’s why I decided to code a small script to find all download links posted in comments under RLSLOG articles, check if they are still working and eventually delete the inactive ones. We will start with Rapidshare.com and I will later adjust the script for other filehosting services as well. I was really surprised by the results, even some links posted today are already deleted/blocked.
We are currently in the process of cleaning our database from those links, it will take some time (we have over 1.5 million comments!), but I believe this addition will improve your user experience with world’s first and still most visited release blog!
