Re: un-known lineage category

I don't want to torrent a show I found on the side of the road. Just wanted to make sure I understood what you where saying. I agree with the policy. I'd like to see silver boots banned as well since they have no linage beyond the pressing. I keep seeing this: AUD > ? > Silver CD. I wonder what's really between AUD and Silver. It could be anything so how is this linage any better than A(x) > CDR. If you stop at the silver you have no digital problems, just an unknown number of analog gens adding hiss and speed variations to the source.

The growth rate is impressive. It explains way my torrents seem to run forever here. I have one that's been running for over a month. The swarm never was very big but it just keeps going and going...

Please don't think I'm picking on the place. IMHO this is the best torrent site there is. You guys have made this a very friendly place to share music.
