The invisible seeder

I know things have been whacked since the domain theft, but I found something a bit surprising yesterday. I was waiting for a seeder to show for a torrent that didn't list one, but decided to go ahead and get it started, since there were a few leechers pretty well along. When I began downloading (using the new tracker url) plenty of seeders showed up, and the torrent completed quickly. Apparently, I connected to some folk not listed here, and I'm guessing they're still seeding the old tracker. I didn't think that would work, since I'd seen several posts saying their old torrents would not connect, but apparently it does (at least for some torrents).

Anyway, I thought some might find this interesting. If you're waiting on a seeder for what looks like an orphaned show, try firing it up and see what you get.
