Hello Hello!!

Anyone here on WinMX? @ 09:09 pm

ooyayootay:
I'm currently feelin: geeky

Does anyone here use WinMX for file-sharing? If so, perhaps it might interest you a bit to know that I have had the good fortune to have my U2 mp3 collection more than QUINTUPLE by the good graces of the awesome Aaron of www.u2wanderer.org.

In the same spirit of sharing the music, I have an idea: Instead of constantly sitting in line waiting for downloads to begin, REAL U2 fans (such as ourselves) could organize and share the music. One idea I had was to share our WinMX user-names amongst ourselves so we could recognize each other and give priority over such folks who are looking for "With Or Without You" to augment their Brittany Spaniels - I mean - Spears collection.

Anyone interested?

Ron

Not when you get your queue clogged up by those who want 25 videos at an average of 75mb each, have been online for 15 hours with a high-speed connection, and they have no files whatsoever to share. There are plenty of those, let me tell you. Why share with who hordes when you can share with those who share in return? Isn't that what U2 and their fans are all about?

You are talking to the wrong person about U2 elitism.

But at the end of the day there isn't any "Real" U2 fans out there.
Just because somebody is greedy enough to hoard your files on winmx and you want to give these files to other people that doesn't make you or anyone else a real fan.

That just sparks arrogance.

Just the same as the argument about somebody who's been into the band 20 years, that doesn't make them any more real of a fan than somebody who just been into the band since the release of ATYCLB.

I'm one of those! I didn't become a fan until about a year ago. It's too bad I didn't discover them earlier....it makes me extremely sad that I'll never have the chance to experience ZooTV, PopMart, or Elevation......... :^(
