    Their retention has gone to hell. They just upgraded servers. Since then, it isn't worth the ten bucks a month. Anyone using something else?

    I'm not a big porn guy. tube galore is about all I need. I see it on there but have never gotten any off of it. The movies would probably be fucked because of the retention problem they are having right now.

    Astraweb has really gone downhill in the last year from my observations.. it seems to be by far the worst for automated DMCA takedowns

    Newshosting has been good to me for about 7 years running.. $14.99 a month, but that includes SSL encryption.. I think it's around 10 bucks without.. would recommend

    btw I would bet it's not the retention that has gone downhill, it's the DMCA takedowns
