Re: TTD Staff: Why don't you follow your own rules?

I don't know if any of you remember STG. We tried the policy of pulling shows recorded by a taper if the taper requested it. What happened as a result of that policy was a mess. Shows uploaded, then asked to be removed, uploaded again under a new name, then removed, etc. Then there was the super big 30GB (I think it was) torrent that was uploaded and the taper waited deliberately until people got to 80% and then pulled it. He did that several times just to get back at people and to make a point with STG that the policy was actually a bad policy. (This was almost six years ago, so it's all kinda fuzzy with me.) It's hard to come up with a policy that is fair and that doesn't get misused.
