Well, I thought everybody knew this, but emmzee doesn't have the money to pay for bandwidth that he would have to if he hosted his own files..........some call this "link stealing", which is why now I host 2 of my files on my site, and link the rest to html pages. I'm sure that emmzee is fully aware of his legal rights though, since he's been in legal trouble before. There are a few on this site that don't link directly to the download, like OMF:2097, but are linked to the page instead.

I knew you'd do this, just because you aren't a mod.

Eee... I think that avatar would qualify as obscenely large, TD. I'm going to have to ask you to resize it within a day or I'll be forced to delete it.

John The Ax: Thunderdog DOES have a point though I'm going to go out on a limb and say that perhaps emmzee simply asked the owners of the mentioned websites if he could use their links.

I believe we call that spamming. Dont do that as it is a waste of time for users. In time, you will no longer be a newby, but raising your post count will give you a worse title: Spammer.

K0 is correct. You'll just lose respect, so don't try it.

Ashley: Bringing up half-a-year old topics for no reason other then to spam is NOT appriciated here.
