This is not meant to be confrontational or combative, so allow me to get that out of the way right up front.
I have recently seen the closure of several file sharing communities, on the surface at least, and I am wondering, how secure is Kazaalite...not the dumb ones that seem to be members of the "community-at-large", who seem to be in the pockets of the RIAA and the MPAA, and are allowed to occupy web space only because they, like Sharman networks, are "kicking in" to the coffers of the powers that be.
I trembled when I saw Kazaalite shut down the other day...I am sick and tired of the Man always winning out over us. I came into this forum to see what was up, and I see an 18 year old kid as the spokesman for all of us, and I have to wonder just how quickly he too will cave when pressured by the RIAA or even the bully down the street. Can this person be an asset, or are we just riding it out until older heads prevail?
Seriously, I am not being combative, I just hate it that Kazaa was rendered impotent so suddenly, to be figureheaded by a self-acclaimed "hormonebomb"...that in itself should be a warning to us about the stability involved here.
I pray that the loyal members, the die-hards, don't give up what is an entirely winnable fight here. Just stick around, folks, and remember, we ARE the consumers here, not them, and we have a voice if we don't fold as soon as the winds shift.
Power to the P2P
I will never give up or roll over to the pukes.
