Re: Sites with DIRECT downloads to bootlets

I'm all for lossLESS files and all (I can't stand the jingle bells cymbals of any eMPty3 I hear!), but banning links to anything I don't think is right...

...I do think if someone's gonna put a link up they should tell it like it is and clearly state that it is to lossy / lossless / whatever, though! If someone's into only lossless and they waste their time signing up to that mystery link, that's not fair.

I propose a full disclosure policy : if you're gonna post a dumbass lossy link, you should say it's to lossy files, lossless files, or a mixture of both on the site.

I guess "buyer beware" is the golden rule here! haha
