Here is the dvd in question?

No reason was given for it being pulled.

Reasons why it should be reinstated.
1. It is not transcoded even though the original broadcast was in PAL. It was originally authored before a thing called bittorrent or this site ever existed.
2. It is not the same as the post in question the user calls out. It contains extras not available on the other and the audio is clearly an upgrade even if it is a resynch. So it does have it's merits.

Also reading the person in questions comments on the original post it smacks of sour grapes to me because he didn't resynch it first. If someone resynch the PAL version with better audio then it should be considered the better of the 2 and this should be pulled at that point but until then it should be allowed on. If nothing else all pulled torrents should at least be given a reason by who pulled it why they did it even if it might seem self explainatory.

10. No Transcoded DVDs are allowed.
We do not allow any DVDs to be seeded that have been recompressed in any way. This includes any DVD9>DVD5 or PAL>NTSC or NTSC>PAL. Please seed the DVDs in the original released form. The only exception here is if you received a DVD with no menus or chapters, then feel free to add a menu and chapter points, but please give credit to the original author, if known. Once you download the show, you may do what you want to it, but please only share the DVDs in their original released form.

Rockpalast broadcasts are in PAL format. Since you have no idea what Gen tape it is, I assume you have no clue as to how it went from a PAL broadcast to NTSC dvd?
That sort of thing is not allowed here, there are plenty of sites that do allow it.
