    But shouldn't it be: Warning: Never pay for filesharing. Anyone who charges is a scammer!

    I don't think the site has direct control over what ads appear in the little ad box at the top of the screen. Anyone that's been here for awhile should know better than paying for p2p technology. Even without the little warning.

    I still think it would look better like this and also frees up some space...

    @danb...if i didn't click on the link it would not generate money and brian has to pay for the hosting himself.

    Clicking the link is fine, commendable even. Danb warned against clicking the links like a doofus.

    Meaning doofuses (or doofii) may be inclined to click the links and then pay $20 for a copy of KaZaa

    You do have the option of adding URLs to a blacklist.

    Yeah I know I can add them to a blacklist. In fact I have been adding them frequently. I stopped because there is basically no end to the # of possible scammers out there. And put the Warning there instead.
