What we delete
Boy, I've been seeing crazy posts and been getting crazy emails from people that think we're out there deleting music, movies, software, you name it and suddenly we are the boogeyman for everything. We've said this in many ways and in many places, but we're only concerned with our material, this includes about 20,000 releases from our various supporters. As I peruse various blogs, I see people complaining of deleted posts from a year before we started, so I imagine we aren't the only ones, but probably the only really open and honest ones about it, so we also take a lot of heat. I've seen so many conspiracy theories about how we will shut down a blog and then take the url over and put junk on it and all sorts of things, none of this is true. The problem for a lot of bloggers is when they have our stuff up there and we file complaints and the whole thing gets shut down. I've seen all sorts of bloggers say "well, just tell me and I'll take it down", we've tried that and guess how many have taken it down? exactly zero. So now we don't bother, we just file complaints and whatever the colateral damage is, well, so be it. You folks that are doing this are creating your own problem.
