Re: Begging Letter - Things I Never Said


Just the impression one gets from reading this thread...easily,but my mistake if it's just being pointed to somehwere to legally download it. emoticon

I also see no point in helping anyone out with something that is clearly and utterly expressed by them as "crap" this also just seems quite hypocritical to me,and surely either a waste of time,or bashing the album is just being done to be defiant toward those who express they like it,and further an arguement on the subject,just for jollies when someone disagrees.


The opinion I'm entitled to by what I read here,nothing more intended,although accused of otherwise.


This is English by the way,and meant to be interpreted as such,not twisted into malice,due to a lack of understanding how it's expressed.

Re: Begging Letter - Things I Never Said


I seem to be mistaken about this?
And if so,this wouldn't be my first or even second apology.(elsehwere)

And I'm also sorry for singling out one party for this,as there are several that give me the same impression in this thread,but atleast they like what they seem to be spreading,and I don't care if anyone is doing it,I mentioned it privately ONCE,and I'm being endlessly badgered for it.

You know. I couldn't care if downloading is legal or not.

First I've bought the album already.

Second there are two songs not included.

Third those songs comes in a mediocre soundquality when downloaded compared to the official record. It's not like getting the real thing for free, it's just to get an impression.

Fourth I will, eventually, buy extra versions of ROTD or an compilation to get those two songs anyway.

Fifth I do NOT like the idea of saving some songs for some fans, and make 'em harder accessable for others. It's stupid, and I would be happy to tell the braindead idiot who made this decision just what I think about it. He's welcome to contact me anytime if he want to complain about me hearing a downloaded version of so-called bonus songs. Sadly he's to big a coward to step forward.

I agree with Atle 100% on this.

Gillan's Mic, as a fellow BIG fan of ROTD, I think this is something to let go. IF in theory the Snips have supplied some with TINS, they did it with no benefit to them except to make fellow fans happy. The fact that they don't care for the album would make it even more selfless to share the song for those who do.

Now IF (again in theory) someone had something against DP and was promoting a full download of the album for free illegally just so that the band suffers financially, then that's a legitimate issue.

I believe that all of us here who discuss ROTD have bought licenses legally. For myself, I bought the CD and bought the tunes separately from iTunes (I know, silly, but iTunes had the songs available before my CD shipped) emoticon

I hope this makes sense.

Re: Begging Letter - Things I Never Said


As not to confuse anyone further...it has nothing to do with stealing...I downloaded the album myself...I only used it as a metaphore to justify something I shouldn't have done in the first place,and Snip Snaps have my sincere apologies...I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY WAYS I CAN TELL THEM THAT,SINCE I speak only one language,and it's not even the proper dialect,so I can be misunderstood without even trying when it comes to them.sometimes.

I also don't care one way or another about downloading mp3's for money...as I think people are being ripped off in the zillions on the quality of such things...why pay for inferior files,when you can get the real deal for not terribly much more$$$$????

Beats the hell out of me,and I still wouldn't do it if Lay Lady Lay were suddenly available...I'd just come by it another way.

Still don't see any point in being so generous yet slanderous at the same time...but no big deal,and that should be let go as well...BUT I'm not the one who mentioned it in this particular thread,just explaining my position,and it was me who Snip was reffering to,so explaining myself once again in more detail each time,I don't feel bad about.

What really bothers me is when people make you out to be a criminal when they have it all wrong in the first place...it helps to discuss what you don't get about ones comments,in private,before you have be pigheaded (me and them) about it by standing your ground about something that was misunderstood,taken personally,but meant in no such way.
