    The pursuit of money has pretty much destroyed every thing that is good on the internet. Now every moron has a blog loaded with adsense and thinks people really care what they have to say. Porn couldnt just exist with some free content and a $29 website, they have to double triple bill upsell crossell and defraud, then the assholes got into warez and started loading everything up with spyware and adware, identity thieves. Bah. The last thing we had left was the ability to grab some torrents of software that we couldnt afford, or didnt want to pay for, well now I go to get a copy of diskeeper for my Mother and lo and behold its a password protected zip file with some stupid shit about "hey arent you glad you got this so fast, keep our stolen shit coming to you quickly, give us your email and jump through this hoop". Thats really fucking lame, and I will take the time to hop back on mininova to go find a file that doesnt do this. Bandwidth is about a cheap as air at this point. Its one thing to pirate stuff, its another thing to resell stolen goods, that is stupid and its lame, and its small time. There should be SOME honor among thieves.

    OK, Buzz, you have tripped my trigger!

    First, I am not gay and prefer my women tall, slim, blonde/blue and two at a time when I can get them that way.

    I am shit-tired of people using the term "gay" to describe stuff that they do not like.

    About half of my friends ARE gay and they are shit-tired of it as well!

    It's discriminatory, offencive and downright fucking RUDE!

    South Park or Cartman you ain't, so knock it the fuck off, mkay?

    Settle settle. Its cool man. If you knew me and the company I keep you would excuse it. My best friend who I carpool with everyday is hollywood stereo type gay and he teases me about being straight and I him. If I was preaching some hate stuff, thats another thing all together. But Im not. Seriously. I am the LEAST discriminatory person on the planet.. without a doubt. Some times Im fast and loose with my words but I also forget that Im not surrounded by people who know me and I get too comfortable. Untrip your trigger. I'll tell Mark I offended someone and he will make fun of me.

    I am not a cartoon character you're right about that. The gay people I know, and I am from the lesbian capitol of n. america (Northampton mass, look it up,academia, where great minds are formed and we all go to college), have better humor than straight people for sure, and I think they would most likely tell you not to worry about fighting their battles, theres plenty of other things in the world to be passionate and angry about.

    Oh please. I didn't realize this forum had a Bitch and Moan section. So I take it black hat stuff is great until it affects something YOU like? What about having to try 10 different search results because the other 9 you clicked on were just junk pages filled with unrelated shit that had no content, and no point other than to hope I click an ad. It sucks but you what? Thats just the way shit is.

    Why don't you tell me what kind of black hat techniques you use to make money so I can bash those. I mean after all it could be something I like.

    Sorry, but like Doug Stanhope said the last time I watched him - GAY is just too good of a word to give up. It's the perfect description for SOOOO many things. I was just watching Comedy Central and Nick Swardson was saying the same thing. Like he said, "How else am I supposed to perfectly describe a Fanny Pak if I can't use the word "GAY"?"

    Same with the word "retarded". Sorry just too good. Take all that PC crap and shove it.

    I guess gays and retards are just going to have to suck it up and deal with it, because I'm not giving into the politically correct nazi's and stopping my use of those words.

    If they don't like it, they can come kick my ass. I'm pretty sure I can take any gay or retard out there in a fight, so bring it on! I'm not afraid of being bitch-slapped by some limp wristed slap, and even if retard strength does really exist, I'm pretty sure I could use my wits to outsmart most retards. I think the "hey look over there" trick will work just perfectly.

    </rant>


    Oh, if anyone takes this post seriously and gets mad, then they are fucking retarded and seriously being pretty gay.



    LOL!

    Guess what even in offline business there is crime.

    It's a repeat in history, what do you think truckers said when they started seeing billboards on the freeway?

    When you order a pizza there is usually a slip on top of the box.

    When you get your cell phone bill there is an advertisement slip in it.

    Your looking at still an early internet but an internet that is very free for advertising and a lot of crime.

    The internet has become what offline currently is. A hustle and bustle ads in yo face type of place. :)

    Actually I have to disagree to a point. Yes password protected, fake, and virus infected torrents are a problem but I dont like to here people that download copyright protected software, mp3's, movies, etc, etc complain. Stealing is stealing no matter how you look at it.

    This reminds me of the people in prison (murderers, thieves, drug dealers and the like) beating up on the child molesters (not that I mind that :). A criminal is a criminal no matter how you look at it.

    The simple solution for those that don't want to try and open a password protected file or risk the fact that it may infect there computer is to......

    Buy the program (or whatever it is).

    This is what blackhat is about! If you care soo much about ethics you shouldnt even download pirated software!

    Software companies love torrents binded with adware cos it gets people running towards them to buy legit! We are doing the world a favor!

    Many of the dudes here including me might aswell end up making our own software, then we will want people to buy legit.

    People are just trying to make a income. There are fine lines in things.

    Honestly, I do not mind the zipped torrents but the thing that annoys me is fake ones. That are protected. That is what stops me from unzipping and just going to find another one.

    The reason people do it is because it is money and time. It is not this set it and forget it thing.

    Also there are stupid people in the world and people who are addicted to downloading porn from anywhere they can. Though I do not agree with the excess people are capitalizing on it. If there is a sextape rumor people load 1,000 of fake torrents because people will download everyone hoping to find the real one.

    Why blame people seeing an opportunity to make money. Most sites do tell you of the program you are dling is zipped just do not dl those ones.

    If anything bothers me it is PPI. I have never went this route but am sure you cam make a major amount with it. Maybe I will do it one day. Who knows.

    You are smarter than most and know what you are doing. Everything has risk in looking for it.

    Look for things that you know will work. DL from other areas. Go to BHW and ask for a program.

    it is annoying but you came to the wrong place to preach. With people making hundreds if not thousands around here your rant will fall on deaf ears.

    Wait.. your complaining because you can't get stolen software for FREE?! Since when are stolen goods usually free?

    Torrents are probably one of the worst things to hit the internet.

    People, like you are trying to sell a product. How would you feel when some jackass takes YOUR product and puts it for everyone to see?

    Stop stealing other peoples hard work and pay for it with all the money you make every day (probably doing the same things you complain about) or steal the software yourself and crack it instead of relying on other people to do it for you. I bet if you did this you'd proudly put a PW on your archive!

    Would you expect thieves to hand you over a stolen iPod for free? for "honor" when "honor" can't pay bills or put food on the table?


    It just pisses me off when people bitch about how they downloaded something off the internet and it wasn't what they expected it to be. This is nothing new, its been going on for years...and this is the last place I'd expect to hear anyone bitching about how they downloaded a PW protected torrent.. this shit is expected.

    and Yes, I do make money off torrents.:cool2:

    It is really annoying, in fact it's the only reason why i'd never load torrents again (except from private trackers).
    It's not that people are trying to make money with it that annoys me,
    it's that they destroy the whole sharing scene.
    Rls groups crack software to make it available for others, without hussle and for free!
    By putting trojans and ppi shit in there, those guys just get on peoples nerves
    and damage the reputation of those rls groups and of those communities.
    Nothing against making money, but if you have to damage others by doing it, you just suck!

    Just my 2 cents!

    i can usually spot a fake share a mile away but i agree with the original poster who started this thread almost a year ago. IMO, the problem here isn't that pple put fake/trojand/passworded shares...it's that there are a billion copycats that have flooded this niche. I mean, a year ago, i could usually spot a fake limewire file in a search. But now, you type in any keyword and i bet you that 95% of the returns are fake. sad sad sad. I think for those that think this is 'ok' have no clue what the internet was like a decade ago......too bad.

    Personally, when i examine money making methods, i try to pick the ones that obtrusive to the end user. I've gotten viruses on my system before, and i can't imagine purposefully giving somebody a trojan or virus to make some coin. .

    But that's my opinion. I think there are a few people out there that will do what ever they can to make money. In there minds being black hat means being without ethics....and they will call every thing they do 'black hat' to justify their actions...as if it makes it ok.

    But whether you view something as being right or wrong...that's a judgment you have to make.
