    Man when i look in the download section and i see idiots asking: "does it work", "is the crack ok", "can you give me a review", jadajadajada ..... it really gets on my nerves.

    If you want to know if something works or if a ebook has some good info, download it your fucking self and read/install it to see if it is something you can use, you lazy motherfuckers, really fucking annoying.

    (Sorry got out of bed with the wrong leg and so fucking enoyed by these assholes )

    Yeah, but come on. All these people just putting out downloads for the sake of "Thanks" is ridiculous. The least you can do before you share something is:

    1. Make sure it f-ing works.
    2. Tell us what it is about.

    Why have 40 people waste their time because the eBook you uploaded is pure crap when a simple one line review of it would save us all a bunch of time.

    This is why I never go into the Downloads section.

    So the upper in your opinion should also give out a review? just download the freaking ebook or software and see for yourself, i really dont see a lot of shares just for the sake of receiving thanks, sure there are a view but most of the shares are what they are and it is up the the downloader if it is anything of value or not.

    Yes the post worked for me, to get it of my chest :D
    Still i find it bullshit, 99% of the ebooks are what... 20/40 pages? come one does the sharer really have to write a review? he/she is sharing it so he/she might think it is worth the trouble.
    And in the time you write a post you could download the thing and read it yourself, well that is my opion on it anyways.

    reviews are subjective. one guy says, 'it's great!'
    but another guy says, 'it's junk'.

    besides, you might pick up a trick or two. :D

    normally i'd agree,

    but when a newbie comes and offers a download, i don't know about you, but i am weary of the link.....it's not that i'm lazy, it's just that i don't want to spend a week clearing my computer of crap

    I think that cliffs notes are great.. most ebooks are all crap anyways, and there are literally thousands of ebooks.. so cliff notes/reviews saves a lot of time

    I scan every download with anti-virus (you never know where the file came from) and I usually I will read something for my self, just to see if it really is good or crap.

    No matter what, it will cost someone in terms of time, to read or scan any product.

    So, I can see how it could be irritating........

    I also see that if someone has already read something and it is pure gold or pure crap, they should post their thoughts on it.....

    Due diligence is always in order.

    I think there should be a small quick review by the OP, like just a sentence or 2. I have no idea what some of the stuff is unless there's a brief review. Plus the thread can be used to discuss the methods of the product.

    Amen bro !
    You're already getting the thing for free, now you are too lazy to read it ??? If you question the ebook or whatever is a piece of shit, then just don't download it. Besides, if you are too lazy to read it, then it's unlikely you would have been willing to put forth the effort implement it anyhow. Save your valuable time and go back to watching "Dancing With the Stars"
    Just my 2 cents

    Well I Can't Say Too Much, 'Cause I'm Guilty Of Posting E-books More Or Less For The Thanks....What Can I Say, I'm A Attention Whore :p

    I Do Find It Annoying That After I Take The Time To Pass A Download, As Well As The Sales Page And A Short Description, I Still Get Asked What It Is/ What Is Included.

    Come On, Read....That's What The Cool Kids Do :rolleyes:

    I can see both sides of the debate. Sometimes the ebook titles are so vague you have no idea what it involves. I wouldn't be concerned with having a full review, but I'd want to know the gist and if it's something I might want to try. Don't make me download an ebook titled "7 Day To 7 Million While Sitting In Your Panties" if it's about MLM or Forex...just not interested, but thanks.
