I don't use Kick Ass Torrents all too often, so I'm going to have to go with Demonoid.  I also frequent the Pirate Bay (and thanks to Chrome's Ad Block Plus, I don't run into problems) when looking for TV Shows or music.

Whenever I download software from the Pirate Bay, I make sure to read the comments (if any) to ensure what I'm about to download won't kill my machine.

Never used KaT but I like Demonoid over the other public trackers I've used.

Demonoid, by far It's friendlier A lot of variety Got a movie I've been looking for forever (thanks to copyman)
No RCTs (Right Column Jigglers) and as I stated on another post  No Porn My computer is in my living room FAQ said it best
There are countless sources to distribute this type of material and Demonoid is not one of them.
Other sites torrent lists are porn, porn, porn, porn, movie, porn, porn, porn, music video You get what I mean

Pretty much this.  I avoid porn sites altogether because I don't want malicious software ruining my investments.  I know there are some other torrent sites that offer this content, but I hate it when torrents under an XXX category come up when searching for something like Sony Vegas Pro 9, or Emicsoft MTS Converter 4.1.20 because software is not porn.

These comments are all very subjective and based on a lot of personal experience. I'm going to step out of why and what I use Demonoid for and post objectively:-

Demonoid WAS the best torrent site around but still has the friendliest community with an admin team that consistently treats their users with respect and remain helpful at all times. This was why I joined the fora this time around. I felt I could start on an even keel, contribute and not feel like the new kid in class.

In terms of functionality and content, Demonoid's main site pales right now because it has just returned and it needs to do a little bit of reputation build-up. A lot of the other fora I frequent fear that this return is all a ruse and the backlash is but a few clicks away. The malfunctioning tracker does little to build site rep as it displays every torrent with zero seeds and leechers, again discouraging others (new users and old) from returning. It looks like a honey trap to some.

I know manpower is slow and there are a lot of features to tweak and bring back up to 100% and I have every confidence that, in-time, The Noid will return to it's former glory. But for now it's a shadow of it's former self.

I've abstained from voting. I don't frequent Kickass torrents so from that perspective alone Demonoid is better as I'm here, I contribute and more importantly I continue to upload so that the people and circles I run with can see that if I think this site is as safe as any other, then they should too.

Long live the 'Noid.

SpiderMike's points are all true, considering Demonoid has only been online for two weeks, which is far from enough time to rebuild 20+ months of downtime.  That being said, much like Moonasha, during Demonoid's 20+ months offline, I gravitated towards the Pirate Bay when searching for TV Shows, music and occasional software.

While Demonoid has always been my preferred choice, I do agree with SpiderMike because rebuilding this community's reputation will take time, considering the site's issues, such as log-in issues, invites, ratios, seed/peer count, uploads, trackers, and the new cloud system.

With all of that being said, I do plan on contributing with software, and occasional obscurities I've found online, such as an obscure MP3 album I intended as my first upload when Demonoid returned.

KAT is good in it's own way.  It has a strong community, and encourages users to get amongst it and be an active member (active member hur-hur-hur).  The psychological trick of handing out awards works well for them.
They also have the option to pretend the world is a nice safe and clean place by turning off XXX results in searches. 
They really do do well at what they do.

They don't have old shitty horror and sci-fi as much as Demonoid.  They don't have nearly the same amounts of audio-book.  They don't have eclectic music by the fistful.  They don't have as intellectual a forum as Demonoid (don't think I'm saying we are intellectual, just they are not as intellectual as we are, if you get what I am saying).
