    Some stupid fuck called Weird banned me without giving a reason, but it is a great source of music, yes.

    well mate so do i, but if i hear of a band that sounds interesting i don't run to the nearest store (which is 100 km from here btw) and make a chance-purchase, so much better to download and see (hear) first.

    I find SoulSeek much easier to use than DC++. I really can't understand the problems you all have with it. And I've heard way to many times about people getting banned for no reason using DC++, that would annoy me like hell.

    the only time ive ever been banned from the UM hub on dc++ is when i first got it, and my upload slots were only at 1.... it was only for 5 minutes. i have absolutely no problems with it. i highly reccomend DC

    I'm with Chasm. I prefer the artwork, liner notes and superior sound quality.

    Some people just prefer the status they get amongst the sharing community of having a huge library and rarities. Not saying Chaotic Manifesto here is one of those people.

    Hmmm... how about newsgroups? Download Power Grab and set it up with your ISP's newsgroup server. I download two or three full albums a day, and it usually takes 5-7 minutes per album. :Smug:

    I use soulseek, i noticed that a lot of people in here dont like soulseek because it's always queued or something. Soulseek works best if you have a broadband connection, i have been able to find nearly everything i've searched for, and i listen to very underground grind stuff which is always nearly impossible to find on most other programs. If it's queued who gives a shit, just leave it over night or something.

    I use Soulseek when I can't find samples from some band that I'm interested.

    Soulseek mostly, though i've recently got into DC++.

    Still use Kazaa occasionally as well, if your lucky you can sometimes find stuff with it.
