Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

perhaps the problem isn't that we don't enforce ratios but that other sites do, so people have become trained through memberships at other sites to look towards them as a judge as to who is a good contributor to the community or not. the reason this site doesn't enforce a ratio requirement is that there are just too many other ways to share and give back to the community. there's no more point in forcing people to maintain a certain ratio than there would be to ban people who didn't offer up a certain number of B&P's. ratios are just one of many ways to give someone an idea as to what type of trader you are, and if you're going to keep insisting that users here adhere to the rules of other sites... well, you're most likely just pissing in the wind. hell just look at my ratio - why hasn't anyone ever flamed me for oversharing when its clear that i have personally prevented many a user from being able to reach a respectable level themselves? whole lot of evil oversharers around here, giving back way too much again and again, getting all the leeches to 100% well before the last people to join the torrent have a chance to give a little back.

quit having silly arguments!

oh wait, its the internet... continue as usual.

I've never had anything other than a home internet connection. It used to be better than it is now - currently capped at a 220K upload.

Having said that ~ I still don't give a fuck about ratios.

Thanks for typing all that shit... I guess. You were uploading while you were typing, right? Might have been long enough to balance out your ratio a bit.

Re: Is there an explicit ratio policy here?

Actually, Dudogger, you are going about this in the wrong way.

Fuck the ratio. Look at my ratio. .....

The only 2 people to ever complain about my ratio got a horselaugh in their faces.

Don't sweat it.

Take my advice and I'll let you in on how to become one of the inner-circle at TTD.

What you want to do is head over to the Lounge and become a Post Whore.

It's that simple.

Your problems at TTD will be solved.

Become a part of the TTD community without ever having to listen to music ever again! There's Post Whores that are so very integral to the TTD family that still don't have the slightest clue that this is "obstensibly" a music-sharing site.

That will solve your problems, don't fight them .....join them....

Become a Post Whore.



Hey, they let jameskg and dcbullet do it, why not you?

And in order to make your life easier, there's a word association thread in the Lounge that allows you to post replies of one word.

Just think how quickly you too can become a member of the TTD family posting a few thousand times in the Word Association thread. Ask weesam about it.

Hell, I'll even give you a cute word to start with....

"analingus"

.....Try that word in the Lounge's Word Association thread.

You're sure to get some "spirit"-ed replies to THAT word.

yer pal,
freezer

Since I'm not the one who brought up this mystical "social life" that you attend to instead of post here ( ), no, I don't know about glass houses.

Read back a couple posts and try to engage your brain.

Oh boy! The old lineage zinger, which has nothing to do with me.

Good one old man. Keep pulling those old, tired, crusty, meaningless insults out of your fetid old brain. Next will come Koolaid, 20 monkeys, why don't you tape your own shows, etc.

Better get back to that "social life"

I logged on and searched "freezer" to see if there were any new masters uploaded and found this thread (tough read for only 4 pages). I won't defend my social life or lack of, but I do have enough dignity not to ever get spotted lurking in one of those lounge threads.

Actually had a fairly social day today. Went on a field trip with about 100 high school kids and some volunteer zoologists, botanists and geologists to a few beautiful spots where we tracked different species and collected some interesting data. Nice group of kids and dedicated adults. Listened to a great Larry Raspberry Freezer master on my commute

Rest of the day won't be too social. Looking forward to watching the second half of the of the Cavs / Nets (I like the Cavs) and then the Spurs / Suns (don't like either, just hoping to see some more blood ). I'll probably switch over to NCIS / House / Boston Legal if my girlfriend has her way with the remote.

Almost as boring as getting worked up over share ratios

Sorry, bullet, I just looked at your lists, why else bring up lineages?




What's the matter, did that crack about lineages and your list hit too close to home, bullet?

Where's that violin so I can play "My Heart Bleeds For You"...poor baby....




Well, I'm sure someone in the lounge will explain about the metaphor of "glass houses" or maybe you can ask your junior high's remedial English teacher tommorrow in class.
