    People ask for roms because they are too lazy to look for themselves. This is especially the case when a game just came out, because it's hard for them to find. When I said I had the Dragon Quest V rom I got about 5 PMs asking me where I got it.

    they don't know how to search on there own and think someone is go to break the forum rules for them.

    i went against the rules one time by mistake i forgot that i'm not allow to give away rom sites when i first joined and i gave one.before i got a chance to edit i got modded.

    All of the above.
    They don't know where to get it, and they're too lazy to google or read the forum rules.

    I never read the rules.
    But with a little common sense, you can guess that asking for roms is "illegal".

    Yes i hate that aswell, i mean it takes only a little time for one to read the rules, and they still don't bother, and they have obviously haven't heard of search engines

    I hope so, considering I just linked to it on the previous page [​IMG]

    I guess in a way you could consider google a ROM site
