Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

That would be a couple of additional queries for the announce script and I don't think our server would like that.

Just an idea Lynne. I'm kind of giddy because my colonoscopy was a huge success this morning! Not a spec of anything! That means I can continue to be a valued member here for years to come!

So we should make this like another site where you can pay to get out of ratio violations? Interesting. While I agree new/rare content is great, lets not reinvent the wheel in order to help your ratio.

I'm cool with my ratio. I'm cool with uploading great videos noone else has. And I'm cool with donating to every site I belong to. It's not buying ratio.
Hell, I spend a ton on postage just mailing gift cds and dvds (not trade). Other people here have attacked my ratio on mt upload threads, so I am trying to figure out a solution that will make them happy. I've said it before, if people would be happy if I suck on the same download teet for a week to improve my ratio I'll do that. PM me for my list still waiting to be seeded.

Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

Look, this thread is tired. I don't know what "Thoughtless" means. If the mods are not gonna enforce ratio standards so be it. Some people have nothing but big ratios to be proud of and that's fine. I respect that accomplishment. Some people put the content on the table for others to make their ratios grow big. That's good too. This site somehow finds a balance which makes it fun for everyone. Let's start a new poll:
Should thoughtless seeders be banned? That is much more interesting to me.

Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

There should be a separate torrent link for people with a ratio under .5. So all the bad sharers have to share with each other. And no one can finish the download until they have given back double their current ratio.

You're a beauty man. Just for that, I'm gonna seed the elusive, treasured and uncirculated 3rd DVD set of Grateful Dead 12-31-87.

Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

You are the best. It all changed with the internet. We used to copy a couple of cassettes over some beers and things, and forge a strong friendship based on our love for the music. Now the snail mail thing is as close to being organic due to the communication that happens between traders with regard to shows. I'll trade anything, and if you have nothing to trade, I'll just send it. PM me chinajoe.

Stop patting yourself on the back before you break your arm.

And stop calling people with 0 uploads bad.

Yes, you give Lynne money. And yes, you upload stuff here. So do I and many other people also. The only difference is we don't beg for praise and worship like you do. You are not Jesus, so stop trying to act like it.

You are one pathetic old man.

Re: Should we ban thoughtless leechers?

I'm happy, not old, a dad, a husband, a world traveler, Deadhead, and I like Senator Obama. Shut up. The comment about breaking my arm was uncalled for. This should be kept in the lounge. You are distracting me from uploading content. Please do what's best for people who come to share music and stop dwelling on bullshit like ratios. You are just getting in the way of important things. Thanks, and have a nice day.

Whoopty do. I'm happy, not old, a dad, a world traveler, a music lover and hate all candidates. What the fuck does this have to do with your constant begging for approval and adoration?

Distracting you from uploading content? clap: Worst excuse ever for a bad ratio. Thank you for playing.

I'd keep this in the lounge, but you are banned from there because you have the tendency to act a little bit irrational. You know, like posting something stupid and redundant through out numerous forums and threads without merit and looking like an idiot. Just be glad you haven't been banned form this whole site.

You still want to carry this out in public or do you want to try using the PM option I gave you earlier?

The option is yours old man. Good nite.
