I got this in an email...
This is a completely retarded statement.You can block known RIAA and other people from viewing your files without impeding my doing so. Using a PRO firewall will allow you to block known sites from accessing your files and as far as I know there is a way of finding them, someone has a list, however I am not interested. Turning off the only way some people have in finding files is ridiculous and makes you no better than a leech. I have no problems discussing this here or on the forum, sharing is sharing with more people than you see on the forum, a lot of my files over the years were found and downloaded because the other person downloaded stuff from me first. If you must be a leetch or you are afraid of the unknown I suggest you stay off the damn internet, your privacy is never safe, do not fool yourself or use that as an excuse to block your files. As far as I am concerned if I cannot view your files that means I cannot download stuff from you and that would in turn make you a leech. To explain what a leetch is it is a parasite that uses a host without returning anything in trade. IE sucks your blood with no benfit to you and someone who wants to download my files and will not allow me to see what they have to offer is no better, in fact a bit worse, they were not born with that instinct nor nead, they simply choose the easy way to get something they want. Dammit if you want p2p files then share and show them, if not you must not want them. PERIOD!
1. I do share, plenty.
2. I do not intend to be an an "ostrich" denying what is going on here (the unknown as you call it), and my actions are completely sane considering. Also, if users start getting more "Denial Of Service" letters than there will nothing to share, as most only have one choice of bb service.
3. I reserve the right to be unseen (my privary) in these times, its American (my rights), if you don't like it use winmx and read my post Here, this may be more to your liking to have a home where can play "p2p god".
4. Please don't try to define "leech" for me as I could define what type of 12 year old writes or believes these staements!!
5. Lastly, and politely ---- Go Away.
