Those are almost always mp3s


Leaving a torrent gpoing for three months just to get to 1-1 is ridiculous

but do it IF YOU WANT TO

Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

Not really. If you search well you'll find a few lossless blogs & forums with uploads on servers.

Take for example queenzone.com, not exactly a blog, not exactly the best site ever when it comes to design, but they have good sharers. Download a boot from there and upload it here. They have there torrents and uploads to servers like mediafire, megaupload, rapidshare etc. All you need to do is say thank you.

Things changed, not the website & forum functionality, but the quality of shared recordings increased.

and the Queen stage show is destroying the West-End tradition, darling, absolutely destroying it. Such riff-raff one sees attending these ghastly shows.
At least the Queen show is at the Tottenham Court Road end of things; it doesn't cast too great a dispersion on Shaftesbury Avenue.

Yep, me. The Musical Box, twice. "Selling England"-show and "Lamb Lies Down"-show, it was worth it each time.

about 5 years ago I got a free ticket to see Musical Box perform Selling England and I'm sorry but I couldn't stop thinking "Yeah they sound good but it's a fucking cover band doing Genesis not the real thing"

I was so glad I didn't pay $40 like my brother did.

I'd maybe pay to see Randy Hansen doing Jimi again, haven't seen Randy since 1980 but remember enjoying that show more than MB

of course i am more than well aware of Shaftesbury Avenue in Soho, but not a place called "Shaftesbury"... is that some London hinterland known only to the initiated.... oh no, i see it's a tiny village in Dorset. surprising how well travelled Bill Hicks was.

only because i have seeded 1 of these new torrents to a ratio of nearly 4 have i bin able to get my ratio up, otherwise i'd be fooked!

if there was a ban imposed would i have ever got the chance to make it right?

i'm like most people and would like to see everyone seed at least up to a 1.0 ratio but sometimes its not possible. theres about another 5-10 torrents i would love to d/load in here but i know my ratio is gonna plummet from doing so as they are older torrents too, so ive held off.
I am new too and greedily downloaded a huge video (10GB) of the wonderful Grateful Dead - its old so who knows if I will ever seed back what I have taken but the intention is there and I will leave it on my computer to seed. Thank goodness this site won't stop me looking for more unlike others where I have struggled to maintain a decent ratio. Seems a shame to stop folk from looking for shows they want for fear of ruining a ratio because no-one is downloading it any more. I am happy to offer copies of my cassettes but didn't think anyone wanted them these days - have loads of Dead shows on cassette....

Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

its different for new members, yer not exactly the one these folks get upset about...most of us understand when ya first join its like a smorgasboard and many of the ones you d/l don't have any others leeching...leave yer torrents seedin and someone will hop on eventually


its the folks who have been here for years, have d/l'ed hundreds of GBs but only u/l'ed say 20 GB in return that folks get pissed at
