OK, I know some mods have a hard-on for threads about P2P issues. I get it. But why does that make anything and everything related to P2P off-limits?
In this thread I was simply asking for links of which sites the RIAA has named in court filings. Maybe worded a little less than clear, but I still say the question is clear enough to undertand among anyone bright enough to get through the day without shitting in their loafers.
We all know P2P exists. A common line here is “Google is your friend”. It’s not too difficult to find one without asking in GQ where to go. We all know that most, if not all of us here, know enough about the web to get to the SDMB more than once on purpose. We all (maybe) understand that P2P and the legal issues make discussion of using those services verboten. Because of the legal issues.
Which is what I was asking about.
Which you apparently didn’t understand in that thread.
I was looking for links (not P2P sites) about who the RIAA is going after. I was looking, in essence, for cites of legal matters concerning this matter.
Silly me. I thought the Dope was the place to go for help when trying to find references to public knowledge. Sure, I can find it on my own, but it’ll take far longer to find it than to ask a Doper who is more aware of concise reports of legal matters. My bad. I’ll try to limit my GQ’s to areas that can never be associated with anything illegal ever.
The SDMB has forbidden discussion on this matter. A matter the RIAA is prosecuting on. I understand why the boards won’t allow free discussion of what sites to use and which are better/worse. That’s a given and I’ve taken my lumps on the matter. But why the fuck can’t we talk about the RIAA and what steps they’re taking in this whole deal? The RIAA is, in effect, running through tax money tying up PD’s and courts prosecuting this issue, but we can’t awsk for links to what is happening in the courts?!?
If I want to find a P2P site, I can find a new one faster than it takes to open a new Pit thread proving Bush is Satan incarnate. But God forbid I try to get some info on an issue that has gone to the fucking SCOTUS.
Fighting ignorance, indeed.
