Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

Interesting thought for everyone to think about. How would one define a thoughtless seeder ?? Is it someone who uploads a show wo all the correct info, or someone who uploads a show some may perceive to be of lesser value ? This opens a lot of rooom for problems. Maybe its best left alone !

And a hello to you as well !!!

Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

A few more thoughts as this for whatever reason bothers me. I believe that those who do all the work to upload should be appreciated certainly. Keeep in mind that this is a community of many people and we do not know each other that well.

The problem that I see is that some feel they should get something back or restrict others who they feel do not hold up their share as perceived by whatever group who decides its what they should do. The problem w that is that it is not what giving is about. Giving is somehting that someone does because they feel that they want to. One does not give in expectation of a return.

A little over 7 years ago I gave a kidney to my brother. I did not expect a return. It made me feel good to be able to help another person. And as an aside he is a design engineer for a music affilaiated company. Without his work many musicians would not have what they have today. We might not hear as many nice uploads as we do.

I guess my point is we are all different and give in our own way. We give because we want to, not because we want a return. Perhaps it would be better to change the term from leechers to grateful recipients. Then it would be up to those who do receive to give the desrved thanks to the uploader.

To impose limits I believe is wrong. People upload shows becauses they want to share. People leave shows open for ohers for a reasonable period of time to give a sort of a payback and piggyback on the uploaders generousity. We should be bale to live w whatever level that is and be happy that we were able to help. There will always be those who take advantage, To compromise ones ideals because of that is a sad result.

Nough said.

Bravo!!!!!! I was posting to point out the inconsistency of thought...I upload shows because I want to...not because someone forces me to. I expect nothing in return...Anything I get is a bonus...I would record the shows that I do regardless. I record because I want the music...and because I want the music, I think that there might be others out there who want the same, but for whatever reason, are not able to get it on their own...Giving it to them is just a bonus...more enjoyment = better life.

Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

I honestly dont care about my ratio on this site because most of you are raging assholes. I had started to upload my entire catalog of video masters but stopped on the first one (Pearl Jam College Park MD 1992) because of the amount of shitty pm's I got from leechers who didn't like my transfer methods and demanded I mail them my masters. This is by far the worst community on the web.

The other thing, 95% of the stuff that gets uploaded to this site is garbage. Not true? Thats why you average about 20 downloads per torrent. You cant give away the crap you people post.

You can absolutely ban me. Oh god, I might miss the next "Christian Death" video or *gasp*....dont make me miss that new Kingdom Come pro shot. Seriously, most of you need a reality check and a trip out of moms basement. You give this much thought to something thats supposed to be fun but no, lets start a thread about how much people arent giving you. Assholes.

Again, if this place is so bad, why do you continue to log in here? If you really want us to delete your account, pm Lynne and its done. There's no point in us just banning you since you prove on a daily basis you must log in here, you'll just create a new account.

Well, you somehow managed to download 395GB of that "garbage." So either it's apparently not all crap, or you're not as discerning as you seem to want to appear.

I wouldn't be likely to download a Christian Death vid either, but I also wouldn't download a Pearl Jam video. Different strokes.

Maybe your problem is with the gimme-gimme attitude of the Pearl Jam community and not with the site? It seems your issues are with the leechers from one torrent. You'll always deal with the PMs, wherever you go...comes with being a taper. And while the transfer method isn't optimal, who cares. It's allowable here. Taping a live show, lots of things aren't optimal.

I have no horse in the race, so if you feel you must leave, do as you will. I just don't think you should let the results of one torrent affect your actions.

Have a good day either way.

There's more of those threads in the Lounge, where demanding has become part and parcel of the hobby for a lot of folks.

Exit this forum, take a left, and you can't miss it, you'll know it from the smell of greed.

Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

not sure how i think about this. i've uploaded a crapton of dvds to this server but always suffer from an upload cap of 70kb/s. the dvd i just uploaded i know for a fact helped out someone people like crazy. i think crumbo alone uploaded over 300gbs worth of it before one person completed the download. i know several dozen people more then benefited from this torrent alone, but my ratio is slightly under 1.00 and i see nothing wrong with it.

I also enjoy turning people on to music they had no chance of hearing without sites like this!


thanks everybody

Sorry; people like this piss me off to no end. I wonder if this waterhead realizes that this is one of the very few online music trading sites where QUALITY takes precedence over QUANTITY.

I say ban his leeching ass...if it hasn't been done already.
