    I went to download a ROM from a certain site, which uses rapidshare links. But rapidshare gave me this message:

    'This file is suspected to contain illegal content and has been blocked. After the file has been blocked for 7 days it will automatically be deleted, if the block is not removed by RapidShare. For this reason, a download of this file is currently not possible.'

    Is this because people are reporting it (seems a bit unlikely), because rapidshare are randomly checking files, or is it some algorithm designed to catch illegal downloads?

    Either way it's a bit worrying [​IMG]

    It happens to a lot of files. Someone probably did report it. Just find another link and stop worrying [​IMG]!

    Coming from a hypocrite...

    Just go to alternative sites. Rapidshare is rubbish anyway. You can only download once then wait for a few minutes/hours/days to be able to download again...

    your little rom got abused, so rapidshare have to delete it. don't worry and search for a nother link. they (rapid) would not check for copyright infringement because 99.9% of the uploaded files are warez!

    I don't think it's a good idea to give the name in ANY WAY AT ALL.
    I would edit that out immediately.

    The rules in your sig and you still spam..
    It's just forum glitches, things take time to load, what's the problem?
    So what if you can't see the views on something right away?
    Of what relevance do they have?
    There's no good answer to these questions, so please don't reply to this with spam again.

    Surely you're not taking my posts seriously, do you? Since Even I, the poster never being serious when posting those posts

    I don't know, my buddies always laugh when something like this happen and we complain to others like this, maybe we have different humor level?

    I could say the same for probably 430 of your posts.
    Raes- It's still spam. And everyone makes me make a couple useless posts.
    Then I too am the problem. I hate that.
