Those silly icons on the toolbar to allow me to change theme are ridiculous. I can't believe you think those a good idea, especially as I can't see a way to disable them, unlike any other toolbar icon.

I find it utterly ridiculous you're wasting time with themes, when there are more pressing issues.

I use www.newzleech.com when I have issues with 'supersearch'.

Why do I pay $30? well it's yearly, a year ago it was worth it, now, I think not.

still down here. Considering the number of free services about, makes me wonder why I bother paying $30 a year for infrequent software updates and shoddy usenet search.

It worked before, so it should work now, funny all this nonsense about firewalls blocking some users connections.

Newsleecher used to provide a premium service in regards to search, though there are many more players nowadays. It looks like newsleecher has lost the plot.

It's not MS's fault you didn't have Windows Updates turned on. Root certificates expire and new root certifiers like GoDaddy pop up every now and again. You need to refresh your root certs to be able to authenticate with servers that use those certifiers. No matter what OS you use, you need to refr...

It's a bit ridiculous that it takes an external update to MS to get SS working.

I'd like to subscribe to SS again, though considering the current shoddy service, it's unlikely. Also the software should just work, I shouldn't need to update something via MS.

Considering the current performance of SS, I'm glad I didn't renew my subscription. Considering the frustrating experience of using SS, it's far easier to use a free service like binsearch, at least it works.

I get sick of all these mod posts, saying 'oh it works here'.

I get frequent 'Unable to receive a reply from the super search engine' ...and no, I've never used a cracked version.

My SS subscription runs out in a few days, I'm also considering whether it's worth taking it out for another year, as it seems to fail more times than it works.

I have 3 priorities of newsservers, 1. my ISP's (priority 1), 2. my paid unlimited (priority 2), 3. my paid block account (priority 3) My ISP's is rather useless, though I leave it enable as it finds some stuff on some groups... though I've just downloaded something, it skipped my paid unlimited ser...

I think this feature should be bought back either with the old 'under a certain size' and / or 'for certain filetypes', i.e you could specify which filetypes you want to be automatically moved to the top. For example, I maybe downloading a few films, but while they're downloading, i'll be browsing t...
