Lots of good discussion here. I have found that Newsgroups, while a great place to GET stuff does have some massively rude folks who just get a kick out of raising a ruckus. And some demanding folks who would complain and complain that things weren't posted the way they liked. I got fed up with the lack of discussion there as well. I do find torrents easier and more friendly, and like some others here, I like the fact that you are going to share whether you want to or not with torrents. It just makes it more fair. And I got tired of arguing about the need to not post stuff like the OFFICIAL 50th 6 disc set Disney put out. The torrent group has the best attitude, or at least the attitude I agree with.
