I'm assuming you've met every hippie. The ones worth knowing probably avoided your narc looking drug buying frat boy ass like the plague. Fucking dumb ass.
Definitely a poorly thought out post for someone who KNOWs what the"MAN" looks like........yeesh. Maybe try putting down the pipe BEFORE you make a post that smells of idiocy.

Actually in late '89 or '90 at Dead shows the "MAN", as you put it, started using groups of frat guys to buy drugs or find people to smoke pot with. These kids that seemed to just be there parting would inform a near by group of narcs who would then make an arrest. I know this because I saw it happen. No pipes involved. So maybe you shouldn't post about things that you don't know about so YOUR IDIOCY isn't apparent to the world.

BTW: Haters suck. That's the only reason I responded to assTarget"s post.

Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

ep620,

If you hadn't noticed...it's 2007, not '89 or '90. Most "Dead" fans I know smoke pot, have families and a good job to boot, and they DON'T waste their time looking for "frat guys" or "narcs" because they are too busy enjoying the show. And I can't be a "hater" because I used to enjoy smoking pot quite a bit, I probably still would be if my job didn't require regular whiz quizzes and background checks, it was my choice to make a life change and I don't regret it....but I certainly do dream every so often about rollin one and going on a road trip just because I can.

We knew how to respect ourselves and others while still having fun....too bad you didn't seem to have the same chance...maybe you wouldn't resemble what you liken others to. It's just the internet, it's just another post in another thread.....time to move on man, the moment's gone.

I thought we were talking about the past. I'm not looking for narcs to jump out of bushes. Life is very different now with the job, daughter, etc.

This is a nice daydream on occasion.

Old school baby. I had fun along the way and I'm glad I got to see shows with older heads (mid '80s). Shit got too heavy in the early '90s. I saw too many of my friends go to jail over slimy shit the cops pulled. So I jumped ship before it happened to me.

Yea. I know. Target's statements are just more internet stupidity. I can joke about hippies (myself included) and I know when someone else is joking. He's not. Ignorant people bother me.

Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

I'm glad you realise I am not taking anything out on you.....I, myself, am a love child...born right at the end of an era and a movement that still thrives to this day. I never forget that....and I am glad you and I are on good terms and not some crazy out of control rant that leads nowhere.



Daydreams are planned activity for retirement.....lmao!!!!

Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

A uberleecher is someone who downloads several torrents at the same time. I'm a "Hit and Runner". I jump on a torrent, jump off, seed one of my own, jump off...over and over. I have enough video to seed until the end of time!

Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

"Hit & running" is your method of uberleeching. "Uberleecher" is a general term for anyone to downloads more than they upload. Own it, you seem to revel in it - unless someone criticizes you.

I don't revel in it at all, I have tried and succeeded in raising my ratio. I have also contributed some content that may never have seen the light of day here since Jan. 1st. As I've said before, any dummie can sit on a torrent and inflate their ratio. I like to think that I provide something important - or as important as a big ratio to the folks here. Don't discourage me now, I'm well on the way to .30! I do encourage you to download any of this years offerings from the Graceful Duck Archive...

Moon, or do people call you "cusser"? I just put this one up to help my ratio. Let's discuss world famine instead vlad's ratio from now on.

Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

I recieved this PM from a member to whom I mailed a dvd to last week. I regularly mail dvds rather than reseed torrents. Not a trade, just a gift with no expectation of anything in return,

I wish something was in place so more credit could be given for actual uploads/contributions...

Again, much appreciated. Anything I can help you with, or keep an eye out for, let me know.

-Matt

Re: Name & Shame Uberleechers Thread

vlad, I would just ignore those that get on your case about your ratio. It isn't as many people as you think it is and some of them in this thread do it just because they know you have made it a sore spot for yourself. You seed a lot of goodies - focus on the positive! You've upload 52 shows in less than a year and many of them were 'new' since you transferred them yourself. So, be happy about all you do for the music world.

Although saying shit like this doesn't help your case any. This is called sharing. And apparently after reading this thread not every dummy knows how to do it.
