    Thats not good, another one will take its place. These crap bills and internet censorship will cause alot of problems that may come for a while but will be removed soon after, much like prohibition was.

    OK, This kinda pisses me off...

    I have 22 games that are lost in limbo because of the D2D Gamefly Bullshit and I'll likely have to torrent them if I ever wanna play them (with my legal keys of course) But some ass munch wants to take these sites down to protect the consumer? LOL

    Yeah i got a bunch too, but i am sure they will add them when they can and would not be surprised if the delay is due to publishers with the agreement changing from D2D to GameFly..

    In any case from all the emails they sent me i made it out if they cannot get them added they will refund thing is with that is when is to long ?..

    I have already explained that i understand the delay but how long i have to wait and nicly explained that till i see most of my game or get refunded i am not buying any more games though them how ever good the service has been before..

    reply is some like sorry were doing our best to get every thing sorted...

    Felt like replying pointlessly saying more like Give me excess to my game i brought for $53 bitches.

    As for torrents not really bothered don't use them any more although they have real usefulness for a lot of people legally..

    If i want some thing i just ask a friend or ask on here..

    As always, one's all to eager to take anothers money (people buying games in this case) but, if they need to let go of it (refund, in this case), they'll drag it out for as long as possible.

    I just seen it, thought it was going after they stopped posting latest uploads on home page:shadedshu. This is probably the fourth torrent site I've used thats been shutdown in the last four three years. R.I.P :cry:

    Agreed.

    The thing that gets me is if ppl would use some obfuscation this it would be 10x harder to monitor.

    One site goes down and something will always take its place. Just like when napster started and then got shut down. People jumped on bearshare then kazzaa then limewire and many more. Theft will never quit and as they say "There ain't no rest for the wicked"

    Nope. As silly as it sounds sometimes torrenting copyrighted content can be a good thing. In said situations where it is a necessity or a good thing people who actually need it will usually be the ones to get around it.

    When all it takes to torrent a new-release blu-ray rip or pre-release game is Googling the title and throwing the word torrent in it there is an issue. My own mom is a pirate and it actually bothers me and not just because she saturates our internet connection with 8gb rips of movies. :banghead:

    ------------

    Unfortunately I don't think simply making it harder would really do the job because then there would always be someone out there to make it easy for them.

    ------------

    To be completely honest with you guys, I don't know what I want or how I want it done.
    I thought I had a good idea but I lost it.
