No downloads for you!

The draconian, arian ways of the flac nazis reminds me of Seinfeld's Soup Nazi episode. It astounds me how a few arrogant people can try to determine what people can download, and what format they can share it in.

More astounding is that the flac nazis can detect lossy formats with a frequency analyzer, but instead insist on a total ban of mp3's and blacklisting of those that convert from flac to mp3.

The arrogance of this arien race of flac nazis is unbelievable. They immediately disparrage the intelligence of anyone who downloads, shares or listens to mp3's.

The RIAA already tells me me that I can not listen to bootlegs. I'll be damned If I will let a flac nazi tell me what I can listen to.

The real reason that flac nazis want to shut down mp3 sharing is that it keeps rare stuff rare and maintains the value of their collections.

We gotta kick these fucking nazis.

What the FUCK does this have to do with sharing music. Keep this crap off this site. Your picture indicates your an adult but this post is childish.
This post needs to be deleted.

Richard needs to somehow show a list of IPS along with share ratios so that we can block the arrogant people who just leech from here and post offending nonsense.

Smithmarauder, what are you talking about? Is there a rule that says downloading not allowed unless you post something? In 3 years I have downloaded 4-5 concerts and have always posted a thank you note to the person making the file available, rather than a note to the effect of "why are you posting in mp3 and not flac"?, which I think is what the original post here was alluding to.

It wasn't directed at your post though I used your quote and it does seem that way. No there isn't a rule about downloading without uploading but the ones who arent uploading should keep these kind of comments to themselves. What the fuck does Sir GH trying to educate people on FLAC have to do with Nazism? I admit, I don't agree with everything he says but he makes some sense about FLAC. I used your quote because (surprising to me)you support such comments. Yes I am aware that you are one of the thankful ones. Maybe I should clarify, I would want to block the arrogant leechers from my shares. Better? = )
Yes, I admit, I used bad wording.

I understand. I see a lot of people complaining about file formats rather than just be thankfull the damm thing is available at all. Also, this whole flac v mp3 thing is a moot point when dealing with, for the most part, very poor audio quality. I am involved with audio daily and have found very few people who can tell the difference between source material on a reference system, and 2nd gen mp3 at 192kbs. Those that can tell the difference are usually very familiar with the recording and only then, they are are not positive of the difference. So with a crappy sounding bootleg, well you get the picture.
Nazi is kind of a strong word and does seem to be bandied about a lot these days, but I see the humor in it particularly as it is being used with the soup nazi as an analogy.
Bottom line, if a Queenzoner cannot appreciate the work and time someone puts into making a file available, don't download it and keep quite.
Do not type 9 say in really whinny voice) " but it's not flac. I need flac. Whaa whaaa"

I'm not really offended by the word Nazi though i'm half German. I just don't think certain things should be posted here. Yes, I do see that there was humor intended but it can backfire.
I think that more people who is not knowledgeable of FLAC should learn enough to be able to download it and convert it for personal use. It would benefit them because there's a lot of great shows in FLAC that are being shared in other Bit sites. My collection is growing because I learned how to DL FLAC and convert. I just downloaded 3 shows over the weekend that were from master recordings, 2 of which I never seen in QZ before. Unfortunately, the person requested not to share in MP3 so I will respect that request. I will be posting some shows here that I have ( from QZ) in MP3 that are excellent in sound. But I will not convert my FLACs to share as MP3.

Go to Dime and TTD and make that post. Let's see how long you'd last there. I'd assume about one hour.

Stop playing victim, especially when you're someone who refuses to learn how the world of collecting works.

I'll post this in every topic if need be: The minute this website enforces a non-mp3 policy, and users make it unanimously clear that lossless is the only to go, dozens of fantastic recordings will be shared here by me. Mark my word. I look forward to this day.

Sir GH, forgive me if I am a little slow You say once the site mandates all downloads are flac, you will make files available. Why do you not make them available anyway?

TTD is all lossless trading. He hasn't shared anything there, but says he will, "in the coming WEEKS".

You know there are 52 WEEKS in a year, right?

Don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen, but you may want to join TTD and JAMTOTHIS, good files become available from time to time.

In TTD you can download two Queen DVDs, HAMMERSMITH 1975 and HOUSTON 1977.

Just keep serving that ego of yours. You're doing a fine job so far.

From what i have seen in the time I have been coming here to QZ, the people who like MP3 seem to be peopel who want a quicker download and.or don't have alot of Hard drive space.
They don't seem to care if flac is better than MP3, they just want the show to listen to.

On other sites, people would rather have the best quality of show in flac form and couldn't care less about file size.

Too each his own I guess..


Yep.. I'm still around here...

For the last few months I have been quietly seeding alot of the shows I have gotten from here. No need to thank me, I'm just carrying on so that others can share in the enjoyment too..
:)


-=Please remember to stick around and seed... so others can share in the fun too..-=
