What do "most" of the recent torrents in this announce forum - have in common with Jaffa Oranges or Tesco grapes?

They are all seedless!

(It was meant to be a serious point!)

Revolutions should be banned. Revolutionaries should be shot. Survivors should be shot again.

[sorry, but this thread does seem rather in the silly vein, even if the topic at hand is much more serious]

a torrent should be only for loosless
rapidshare is suitable for mp3.

where is the problem??
we can have both.

the thing is that people are too greedy.
we need a share ratio.

when a lot complained,i asked people to seed my rapidshare stuff as torrents...nothing happened.

On a serious note, JSS is right, we should keep seeding. I'd prefer fewer torrents which are worth it instead of a load of crap which is up for 20 minutes.


there's one reason why the seeds work in principal, but very often fail in practice

access to the net....lots of the younger people on QZ don't have 24/7 access to the net - their parents would flip if they left their computers on that long - and because of that, oyu can almost hear the "switch that bloody thing off when you've finished downloading" comment. i'm not making excuses for them, but i can see the logical reason why many don't leave theirs switched on

Bit torrent downloads are just too big for many among us, so why don't all you torrentfuckers don't quit the nagging about rapidshare?

Do we nag about bit torrent, hell no. All we want is to download a bit once and a while/wile(?).

Ik bedank verder ook vriendelijk om Rev zijn bolle reet te likken.

I stopped using torrents last year when I joined the queen hub.

This is why the Queen Hub Rocks -

Download and share at your own leisure on the hub.

No worries about seeders or whether the torrent will disappear.

No concert downloads that take days.


Why the fight between rapidshare and torrents? Why can they not co-exist?

I take it you can't read the posts slagging off torrents then ?

I still saved a few torrents... so all you need to do is ask


I have saved about 80% of all published torrents from the queenzone tracker through the years. I can reseed any of those torrents.

So the torrent system is working very good and is more organised than rapidshare in my opinion.
If there are more people who can reseed any torrents from time to time, it will be very helpfull.
