What does “AXXO” mean?
When a file ends with “-aXXo”, it means that the file was* released by aXXo. This is an individual who releases many movies onto the internet. His/her** name is interpreted to be a guarantee of quality, because aXXo always releases quality DVDRips of new and old films.
Note: aXXo, dubbed “the world’s premier DVD ripper”, is a non-scene releaser.
In an interview with TorrentFreak, aXXo said: “Upload what you’ve downloaded, and then some.”
EDIT: This is apparently a fake interview. According to comment below.
*Some copyright agencies or malicious users can use aXXo’s name to lure people into downloading fake or malicious releases. The way to make sure it is a genuine release, it to get it from aXXo’s user page on one of the trackers to which he uploads.
**There is no indication as to aXXo’s personal details or whereabouts, and no doubt he uses methods to anonymize his IP address and identity.
