There is no harvesting of email addresses. A simple PM through the forum is all that is required.
There is no control freak puffery. There are a few guys who are working on their own time, in spite of insane work hours and family commitments to provide an EASY place for people to get access.
Personally, I do not use public trackers. Call me crazy, call me maybe. I have been on the two big private trackers for 7 years and I prefer that to TPB or anything else. Private trackers do not have open invites for all to join or we would obviously go that route. Oh and BTW, I just went to TPB and did a "Dakar" search... LOL... Nice pop up ad... and they only have SD of the first two stages... that is sooo yesterday.
Years ago when I first started doing this, we were posting torrent links directly in the forum posts. The admins asked us to kindly not do that. No problem there. I'm happy to comply, since this is not my forum.
I get PM's all the time from people asking me for a one click solution. Many people on this forum can tear down a thumper and put it all back together blindfolded. They can't find a "proxy" or use a VPN, nor do they care to invest the time to learn how. I do know how to do that so it's easy for me. We all choose to use our strengths to benefit other's weaknesses. Not that hard a concept...
If you are that oppressed, feel free to opt out. Over the past few years I have had literally hundreds of people thanking us for what we do here for two weeks every January. As long as people are appreciative, I will continue to help.
FYI, the rules are more to help with the organization than anything else... Otherwise no one would know who to ask for what or how...
