    I think it's a big enough story that we can have a thread here too.

    I'm thinking that as a hard core sharer he probably considered them for amateurs. Those guys are all about a different architecture. Then again he apparently was more about educating the masses.

    I guess so. I really didn't read that forum at all. Just skimmed a couple of times.

    I guess that site was a convenient "lowest common denominator" so he did link there.

    Shang was more for torrents, and would post stuff to Mega, because it had the shortest wait time and fastest speeds. Free on Mega, I'd get 2x the speed as paying for Filesonic.

    Looks like we can't even discuss the article now? I'm not sure. See the new "rules" post...

    This being a news story I think it's ok to continue the discussion, there's no "how to" info being shared.

    Well, it does say "names" but I would love a clarification. That slope gets awfully slippery.
