Firstly, distributing ROM's is illegal. We all know anything to do with them is illegal, since their very purpose and existence violates copyright law. So it IS illegal to download games from them, ESPECIALLY at a monthly rate. If I were you, I'd contact Nintendo about it.

About their client thingy...Thats legal, if they're using open source software in the first place. It may not be right without consent from the authors, but what can we do...

Anyway, I wouldn't pay for ROM's even if my life depended on it. There's so many other sites that you can get them from anyway.

I think I've seen the site they're talking about, and AFAIK they have some sort of check-out system. Whereas, they only check-out the number of copies they physically have.

Blockbuster seems to get away with it.

Man, I've got tons of ROMs, and nice emulators, and I never had to pay a monthly fee.
I'm guessing many of you are hackers (at least in the sense of modifying programs), and you could probably change the remaining time of the paid monthly period and stop having to pay them.

Turn on MTV right now. It's a show about you not being such a fucking dork. Take notes.

What is your problem with Rai? Is it his "blank post" thing? I mean, if you're supposed to be the keeper of the thread, why trash newer users?

I'm not ganging up on anyone. I just don't see the point of trashing those who are younger than you. I rose up to defend Rai from unearned abuse by older, more experienced ZMD users. If you don't stand up for what you believe in, you are no more than a slave.

Tell me. Do you find torturing others for no reason FUNNY? I think it's just sick. Laughing at people is just enjoying yourself at the expense of others. And it's wrong. I experience it every day, so please stop doing it.
P.S. I'm asking NICELY.
