    If music were more expensive, I'd side with you BoneMonkey.

    Too bad it'll cost my life savings to fill an 80GB ipod if there were no such thing as piracy.

    Many downloaders do buy music, in fact many stuff I've bought is by bands I've not have heard with pirating their music before hand. Why the hell should I pay good money for something that turns out to be a big pile of crap? Sure you can hear samples and what not but it doesn't give a good enough idea of what a full record sounds like on a big ass stereo.

    Of course many don't buy stuff they get.

    I love seeing people on hear take the high ground on piracy. [​IMG]

    99 cents per song is expensive ??? if everyone download songs illegally albums wont sell and your favorite band stops making music

    same with video games


    so your whole arguement is i cant afford it so its ok to pirate stuff ???

    This argument is bullshit and you know it.

    If anyone has invites to libble, I would be glad to have one, thanks.

    Such a pity to be homeless of such an amazing website...

    @osiris: You realize that you didn't HAVE to buy an 80 gig ipod right? You're acting like the victim. You can afford to buy that ipod, but not the songs to fill it. QFT

    Also, I guess the whole, oink closing down thing really says a lot about invite only trackers eh? I realize that it wasn't THE hardest tracker to get into. But there were ALWAYS people begging for invites and it got closed. Doesn't say a whole lot about private trackers then, eh?

    Heard about this on the news. At least the report went through the bother of explaining torrents and even mentioned Pirate Bay and a bunch of other torrent sites.

    Anyways, I remember a report where the UK is the biggest users of torrents for TV Shows.

    Probably because we're too impatient to wait for the US ones to air over here. I do download a lot of classic stuff as well.

    I think the snapping point for me was when new Family Guy was given a decent 10PM time slot. Then suddenly, SNOOKERS. TONS OF DELAYS.

    Then it got pushed to midnight. Then to BBC3. Granted Family Guy isn't a must watch show for me anymore but at that time it was infuriating.

    Oh my god. This day will go down as horrible. When I saw the site this morning I freaked.

    Unfortunately, it *was* inevitable.

    What's gonna happen now? Anyone have any ideas?

    P.S. I would love anyone for a Libble invite. [​IMG]

    I would suggest closing your bittorrent client, just in case.

    On the plus side, I can finally delete all those old, duplicate folders I had in my torrents folder, so I wouldn't accidentally change any of the data, making my torrents useless for uploading.
