I disagree with a lot of stuff in the 'pros' article, and I agree wholeheartedly with everything in the 'cons' article. I'm so glad someone took the time to write out that argument so well.

I find that one of the worst things about Internet leakage is that it divides the fans right down the middle. In the past, everyone got to hear the music at the same time, and share the whole experience together. Nowadays, some people hear it before others, because of these different moral viewpoints... it just seems like a real shame that the whole thing has become a kind of competition. If the songs become available online, I know I'll have to go out of my way to avoid this community, the newsgroups and every other fan forum, because people will be discussing them and I don't want to hear about it yet. Which feels very unfair. :/

When ATYCLB came out, someone on the newsgroups mentioned that he'd taken great pleasure in driving up to the music store on the day of the album's release, blaring his illegally downloaded copy from the car windows as he approached the waiting queues. My blood practically boiled when I read that... I can't believe someone could be so inconsiderate towards the people who wanted to wait until they got home with the CD. I hate the way some fans can totally spoil the experience for other fans in this era.
