    I disagree, it works fine for me.
    Just because YOU have had a problem it doesnt mean it should be
    banned for those who may need it and can access it without any problems.

    Zippy is really good tbh (blame uk)... Just fire up that VPN near you and be done with it or just don't download then ... totally your choice

    It is one of the biggest uploading site, ban it would cause, eh, at least a bit inconvenience.

    zippy is speedy, why should bhw ban zippy just because uk people cant access it?
    my suggestion, use vpn browser addon (im using windscribe). its just need 1 click to activate vpn, not 5 minutes like ur vpn software :D

    It's a good point, though. We want to make sure the approved download sites are still (relatively) secure and safe to get files from. We won't immediately be removing zippyshare from the approved list, but I'll look into the issues raised and we'll re-evaluate the list of approved sites and we'll build in a process for reporting security problems or issues with them and carrying out regular checks to see if better alternatives are available.

    Likewise, if anyone has any recommendations for sites they'd like to add to the approved list, feel free to reply here with the suggestion and we can put a poll at the top of the thread to see which of the suggestions would be useful for the largest amount of people.

    fair enough of an answer and thank you. Yea VPns work but that’s a pain, and often causes issues with whatever site I’m using when all I wanna do is skim read a pdf

    Use VPN or ask for a mirror why should anyone change their method of upload to please you smh. Especially considering they don't have to share, to begin with.

    The problem with Google Drive is you can change the content as opposed to the approved DL sites where the item uploaded is the item uploaded.
