Thread: Pay to leech?

  1. #1
    Hi folks,

    I've just got into this private tracker thing recently... wondering if someone could help me out.

    Could someone tell me which decent private trackers (for general 0day downloads) do NOT sell upload credit or VIP access.

    I'm currently a member of RevTT & Torrentleech, and I do not like their policies in this regard. What about sites like ScT, F*N, FB etc? Just wondering whether its worth pursuing an account on a tracker which has a better policy.

    Thanks!

    SCT and F*N dont seel credits or VIP.

    Not sure what your issue would be with TL anyways.
    They dont sell your bw or anything to people. The people who donate pay for the many seedboxes they use to supply the files anyways. (Which is where you get the bw your using when dl off the site as well.) As long as they dont force you to donate I dont see any real issue.

    By allowing donaters immunity to ratio requirements, they are effectively selling users bandwidth.

    The donators are imune cause they are paying for the bw the seedboxes use.
    So in this case. They are paying for the bw they use. You arent paying for the bw they use nor the bandwidth you use.

    I seed back for the bandwith I use. I always have a ratio greater than 1. Oh, and I pay my ISP....

    "Never pay for File Sharing!" sound familiar?

    Does TL publish how much it costs to run the site, and how much they have received in donations??

    why would anyone do that? if you do see financial figures posted on sites, they're most likely falsified. if a site is taking in more money per month than the costs associated with running the site, do you actually think they're going to roll over the extra to pay for the next month's operating costs?

    site owners will swear up and down that it doesn't happen, but take a moment to think of the reality of the situation.

    doesn't really bother me though. I've never been required to donate money to any site, to gain access and use it.

    if the owners want to make some money off their sites, so be it. it's a large legal risk to run a site, and the admins are the ones who take the largest risk. people aren't as anonymous as they believe they are, and if "the people" want to talk to you, they will find you.

    and their work to code/maintain the site...bring u releases and stuff...it's all free...but if u wanna pay they won't say no...and it's pretty easy to seed in TL once you got rid of wait times

    the only thing that points out to the greed thing i think are in fact the wait times...which sux0r bigtime imo
