Oh...you're being serious. $10 says you didn't even bother to learn how usenet even works. Another $10 says you probably have no idea what NZB files are. Tack on another $10 simply because only the uneducated bother with passworded files.
You can pay me through PayPal. I don't accept money orders.
Obviously, you missed the point. So your smartass remark is actually pretty sad.
There's no "learning curve" to Torrents. You tell it what you want, you download it, you've got it.
The fact that you have to "learn" how to use Usenet, figure out what NZB files are, ON TOP
of paying some monthly fee for service... that's stupid. So keep your... what was it? $30 bet?
Torrents work just as fast as any download from newsgroups and I've never had to deal with
password protected files or some of the other horror stories I've read about like "accidentally"
downloading child porn and the like. Nor do I have to pay a monthly fee.
Which, by the way, really gets to me. If you're going to PAY MONEY to be part of some
underground, "secure" pirating group... why the hell not just pay that money and be
legit? Yea... your snarky comment was asinine.
Oh, by "secret" I mean anonymous. What with the hype of newsgroups allowing SSH
connections and all. But, here's the kicker... if you're paying a monthly fee, doesn't
that mean you are leaving a trace of your real identity? Just a thought.
