As a Usenet geek originally because P2P wasn't around when the Net started this is where us geeks hung out to get our stuff, later Warez.com sprang to the scene and the name Warez was coined, then sometime down the road P2P came into being and so begins where I stand today using Usenet along with P2P.
Since I'm an old school Usenet geek and software pirate I have not hung around the private tracker torrent scene that long, and now I realize many trackers typically have the same rules. Lower level trackers will allow or tolerate public invites and giveaways, but the higher level trackers won't.
Does FST respect these rules of the higher level trackers and enforce them here? Because I don't see this happening...
Old school PC geeks have a code of ethics, actually let me rephrase that to also include, 'REAL PC GEEKS', and if you've been around as long as I have then you'd know this, that it isn't just some free for all, sprawl. Simply put real pirates respect each other...
If FST does not enforce the rules of trackers then unsuspecting people will then find their accounts banned.
I also believe as real PC geeks do, we get our names and we keep to them. Real pirates don't go around hiding under the disguise of other nicks unless there are problems, and joining a tracker in respect is not a problem that someone needs to hide under another name, even for security sake, all you need to do is just use good passwords, different on each tracker is all.
For all of our names I hope FST will help to enforce, because I for one like my name, and I hope to maintain a good name, not find myself on the end of a ban, because people invite me, and tarnish my name.
So if you think allowing these trades, invites and giveaways a cool thing, and just tell people to use a different nick so you can just beat the system, then this is wrong and it simply just undermines everything and then the pirates of the Net truly have no code of respect, or honor, and I'm old school and we have respect, so please let us start respecting the wishes of the trackers on FST, and show them this is a good place!
