I need to be circumspect in this post - I'm here to apologize for posting something earlier which had to be removed by the admins.
I was asking for information on a certain Internet sub-culture through which people have access to large files of most any sort. In the post, I explained how I stumbled across this phenomenon for the first time through a Google search. I also described my experience trying to use the services of this "sub-culture" and how it ended up as a dead end.
Now it's gotten back to me that people in chat apparently were saying that I'd posted instructions about how to get pirated music software---?!?!---Maybe that was just a gross simplification, and not an accurate report of what the chat was really about - But that's how I heard it. And that is Not at all an accurate description of what my deleted post was about.
I can be Such an innocent Dumbo, and I guess this is one of those cases. I didn't understand exactly what it was I'd stumbled on to through Google, I figured some techno types here would have more info--so I put up the post asking for information.
OH well---I meant well. It was a strange adventure--And for the record, I.m back where I started. This certain "underground Internet sub-culture" did Not yield me anything usable. If I Had gotten what I wanted from this "service," I was only going to use it if there was some way of sending payment.
---Seems like I've done little more than stumble on the various posts I've put up since my Birthday (Oct 9). Maybe I'm just rusty and out of practice.
Sorry folks, I vow to do better!
