    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

    Is it acceptable to use this site to point it out?

    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
