I didn't even think of that... fuck.... But I guess it's almost 10am on the east coast, 9am here so it looks like we're doing pretty well this time...

Then it devolved into this thankfest thing that, while stroking the uploader's ego, is absolutely useless for any real purpose.

This whole 'thanks whoring' thing is a fairly recent phenomenon, and is in fact a bastardization of what the feature was intended for.

Personally, the # of people who download one of my uploads tells me far more about whether or not I did good than any number of 'Thank You!s' ever will.

I just wonder if Marty is as miserable a person IRL as he is here?????

Quality qual·i·ty

1. An inherent or distinguishing characteristic; a property.
(distinguishing characteristic??? full of venom (or himself) in Marty's case)

2. A personal trait, especially a character trait: “The most vital quality a soldier can possess is self-confidence” (George S. Patton).
(character????? HAHAHAHA!)

3. Essential character; nature: “The quality of mercy is not strain'd” (Shakespeare).
(somehow I just can't bring myself to mention "his name" right after Shakespeare)

4. Superiority of kind: an intellect of unquestioned quality.
(superiority in his mind)

5. in the New Funk N Wagnels QUALITY is defined as only Marty has Pink Floyd that deserves to be shared. The rest of us better not dare.

What's wrong with just writing a letter saying something similar to "please stop seeding U2 torrents on your site" like the Brian Wilson/Beach Boys people did? Why is the industry such drama queens about it?

Quality: something special about an object or person
Can you rock a party without rehearsing?
I can, anytime, on the spot rhyme
Many recording artists can't do it, but I'm
More than just a recording artist kicking dust
I'm a sandstorm, taking human form
K plus R S equals one
I don't burn anymore, I just cook 'till you're done
And when you're done, then I serve
Like alphabet soup, letters, words
Sentences, chunks of meat into a paragraph
Get the meaning then ask the question 'bout the guy
Who first is down but then he lies
What he is to you, he's a part time sucker

Marty, I don't think that's being fair at all. I've seen some excellent shows put up there. I've also seen a lot of the users there start to post lineage and source info with their shows recently too. Sure, not all shows are quality, but I've seen a huge improvement over there in the last six or so months. I think the Mods have been trying real hard to improve the site and I think it shows.

As for the U2 part of this, I'm not sure exactly what to think. U2 is not anti-taping, however, I do know they are anti-IEMs and I know they can be a bit of perfectionists and so they aren't too crazy about filming. So, I would guess it's either the DVDs or the IEMs that are the culprits.

I didn't mean to be disrespectful to Martin66, but it's not becoming to be gleeful about other's misfortune. The truth is, sites don't control quality - seeders do. Let's be grateful for the stuff we get form the kind folks who are gracious enough to share it.

It's for that very reason that I have to wonder if their hosts have even received legitimate complaints, or if they're just bogus letters from someone out to get them.

I'm really starting to think there's someone out to get them.

Oh, who wants to do a version of the "owned" picture for EZT/DIME? I'd do it myself, but I can't think of a font that screams U2.

so should the 4-cam dvd be torrented here then? Also he's another theory, maybe someone was pissed about not being to trade out the 4-cam mix and wanted to sabatoge dime for it because the torrent wasn't going to be taken down
