You see, I have mostly agreed with all of your rants about said topic. I even tried to explain I was more referring to the collectors, not the tapers.

OK, I looked again.

What difference who it is that's "hoarding"? The taper or someone who got a copy directly from the taper, no difference. It's none of your business.

Carping about "hoarding" is tantamount to whining about entitlement issues. Your entitlement issues are poking out here.

So I went and I looked again.....I wasn't able to tell that you "was more referring to collectors", because you didn't use that word, "collectors".

I apologize for not immediately knowing what you meant.

I'll try to do better next time in translating your written words from what it is that you really are thinking.

Forgive me for not knowing immediately. I apologize.

You meant, like the omission of the word "collectors" ??

Ok. Then I apologize again for not knowing what words were omitted.

Sorry, my bad... I thought you were tossing down the gauntlet when you proclaimed:

But I will continue "hoarding" whatever the fuck I wanna hoard, whether I taped it myself OR if I got it from someone else. And it's still nobody else's fucking business... Again, I don't need permission nor approval. Nobody else needs permission nor approval from the Brain Police on this issue.


Oh, and I certainly would NEVER know what was said in a "Jerry" thread, because I don't give a fuck about no "Jerry" and I don't read anything like that... unless Jerry has got "Tom" with him. Then it's interesting to me.





Quote:
Before this totally goes off course once again, could we come back to the topic, please?
Again I apologize.

Please, please... by all means, please get back to your topic.


Sorry I ever disturbed this private flame fest again.

I'll tip out now and let you get this thread back to vehemently hating vladsmythe.

No thanks.

We also don't live under outright communism just yet - at least in letter the western society is individualistic. You people gotta re-learn what liberty means and what are the principles behind it.

If you share your recordings, what is wrong with ppl downloading them without giving anything back? You are the one who shared unselfishly, but then you make demands. There are really nice people who share recordings and are happy people appreciate them and enjoy them - and these people don't demand anything back - except perhaps they like to know that their efforts are being appreciated - these are really DECENT sharers.

And i never jump off torrents when i'm the only seeder and someone is downloading - but that's the thing, in the end people who support individualism and liberty are actually decent people - that kind of thing isn't decided by ratio (you wanna know how many people i have sent shows just cause i've had something they wanted? At least over ten - but i SURE AS HELL wouldn't want to do it if i felt FORCED so that someone accepts me and deems me worthy - nor do i ALWAYS do it, sometimes i have my reasons not to.)

But under liberty, even being not decent should be allowed because we're all on our own trips on this planet.

Ultimately, the people who jump off torrents bveing the only seeder etc., are the only ones who know why they do that. If they feel they are doing the right thing - it's their business to learn on their own whether or not they are not. By FORCING A POLICY you will not make a SINGLE PERSON better in any way shape or form on this planet. And ultimately it's not up to you to decide what's better.

And why do i read threads just as this if i don't have time or interest in this "community"? Because i saw the title of the thread and thought i would have something constructive to say.

No need to debate with me, you'll come to your own understanding through the application of your God-given sentience - as have/will i.
exactly my point!

Torrenting=not good.

-It enables and encourages the "instant gratification" mentality.
-It does not foster a sense of community that is present amongst "real" traders.
-It demotes the hobby of taping. People realize they can sit in their basement and push a few buttons thus getting them practically any show they want,without giving the slightest bit of anything back to the "community".

Didn't someone just offer you some uncirculated masters if you'd seed them and you turned them down because you weren't up to speed in that regard?

One step forward and two steps backwards... just tell 'em you're dancing, pappy.....






If you need me, for the next hour or so I'll be in the rehearsal room, practicing some I-IV-V blues progressions on my Mississippi 'saxophone' --

As a thoughtless seeder, I have determined that I have little to say and that the opinions here are of low or no value.

Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

I have never been formally offered anything, my good man. I was sent a few questions in a PM.....
Perhaps you are referring to the jazz n heritage radio show but I did not take that question about that show as an offer....I took that as more music talk ala the Red Sticker Ramblers, which is where I chimed in.....oh well
If you cannot already tell I confuse easily so please be merciful with my shortcomings


(HA!
I am ENTITLED to mercy.....)

Freezer if you play harp as suggested perhaps you might check out Joe Filisko who was harp of the year in 92(?) and is a friend and former teacher.
