BTJunkie indexes both private and public trackers using an automatic web crawler that scans the Internet for torrent files. Cookies are used to track what one downloads so that the person doesn't need to register in order to rate the torrent. The ratings and feedback given by the person are used to help properly filter and flag malicious torrents uploaded into the website.
