mininova introduces “user icons” to help prevent spam

Today’s mininova results have a new graphical element in them:

These icons allow users to quickly discern when a torrent that claims to be from a well-known group (e.g. eztv) is not actually from that group.
These “spam torrents” can appear when new shows come out or are anticipated to come out, and clog up the internet with useless data, wasting both ISP bandwidth and everyone’s time.

    I've been waiting for something like this. I always scan my torrents and their contents but sometimes a few trojans get away and infest my computer. Mininova might set a trend among all torrent sites.
