This worries me greatly, what with the recent closure of Oink.
Would appreciate it after the demise of OiNK
I used to have an account but stopped using it after discovering oink... i feel silly now :-(
just use something like emule? you know...where you dont have to give them details, money or do any uploading...
does this mean that music forums will be talking about bands like Cursillistas and Psychedelic Horseshit?
and this might be a crazy idea, here...
but, how about you start paying for the music you listen to? Like I said, it's a bit of a wild notion, but I hear it's what some people do.
You bunch of bloody cheapskates.
please invite me..
i love that that's the best reply you could come up with.
I could of come up with something better, but I didn't think your sarcastic and self-satisfied post really deserved it.
A bit anyway
I was just playing devil's advocate really. I like stirring up debate about the morality of illegal downloading. I think it's pretty much the most important topic regarding music at the moment, and I'll admit I take pride in the fact that I own a music collection, rather than a bunch of illegally copied mp3s.
Still, it was hardly a venomous assault on those who do download illegally, more a tongue-in-cheek observation that there's an alternative to doing what seems to be the norm for most of the people replying to this thread. It made me chuckle that all I got in way of a response was "bellend".
Sorry, the bellend thing was a bit of joke. Ever since crablin started that thread calling Traynor one I keep using the word.
I agree that illegal filesharing ia an important issue, but you seemed to suggest that those who download don't buy records, which obviously isn't true.
