You're assuming that Chinese dramas is more popular than Japanese and Korean put together! Well, I have some news for ya... Chinese/Hong Kong/Taiwanese dramas are at the BOTTOM of the Eastern Asian pile - with the Japanese and Korean dramas running over the C/H/T stuff. D-Addicts could actually completely shut down the C/H/T forums altogether, and it'll STILL have way more hits than many other sites. Also, D-Addicts has been running since 2003 - YEARS before the DDLs flooded this site.

and I'll triple your bet that it won't.

obviously, you know nothing about D-A's statistics and traffic. DDL leechers were only a minute fraction of the people coming by here.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it was mentioned before that the less people coming here, the less the server costs would be. I may be wrong on this but either way, D-Addicts will never go away base on the loss of DDLs alone.

Guys, can't say that I'm not a little disappointed. We're supposed to be civil and tolerant of such members whom may feel confused or angry, and that they're being cheated out of something that is freely available everywhere all over the Internet. We're aiming for a forum with quality posts and meaningful discussion, aren't we?

Let's pretend none of that happened.. on with the show!

Maybe you should lock this thread. I think the thread has served its purpose and it's started to get trollish.

I WAS being civil and tolerant, to a point. But if someone starts acting flip, we should be able to respond as well. A little too quick on the censoring thing these days. Frankly, some of the not-so-nice posts serve as a deterrent to future similar ones. Simply locking the posts has served that purpose well in the past.

Howzabout one big sticky entitled "There will be no more direct downloads, period. No more discussion, sorry to whomever it displeases, but that's the way it is."

Locked, loaded, and finished. I don't particularly enjoy getting on people, but at the same time, some things do need to be addressed.

Besides, AkumaX, you have to admit that in general I've been much less on the attacking end and generally more patient and toned-down with members who show a certain.... lack of foresight in posting than before...

haha lol i didn't know there was threads about ddl on the chinese forum coz i watch only jdorama and i use patiently torrent in here coz i thought this site was about torrent and i respect that and i hate when people upload dorama on streaming site without permission. I do like watching on streaming or to download faster but if the rules for getting what i want for free are these I respect them and there's nothing to complain about.

It's one thing to be angry or confused, it's another to be spiteful. I can at least understand the anger and confusion and where they stem from but not the spite.

Let's not bite the hand that feeds you. Or in this case, "fed", since we no longer do the feeding. XD

We usually do proceed with decorum...really. :whistling:

Akuma, well said.

for the proponents of DDLs, we hope you can use DA to discuss your dramas while downloading them with DDL links located elsewhere.

for those of you who have been defending the decision to remove them, we appreciate it, but as Akuma mentioned, we'd like to keep it as civil as possible.

much thanks for your cooperation in this matter.

Wow, I never knew the Chinese drama section was so different from the rest of the site. Never set foot there. :fear:

Serves me right for not reading announcements. XD
