Normally I would have blocked a comment like this, but I would just like to take this opportunity to point out to mattherwrobo and any other new members exactly why we have the "five posts thing". First of all, this site is not free! We have to pay to secure our domain name as well as to host all the content of the site (including the eBooks). On top of that, this site requires numerous dedicated staff members who freely give of their valuable time to help make sure this forum runs right.

Now, many of us (myself included) have donated money to this site. And many of us have served as staff at one time or another. We don't expect any thanks or payback for this. We do it happily, because we want too. The only thing that we do expect is that before you leech off of our resources that you contribute at least five meaningful posts to any thread or threads on the forum. It's not much, anyone can do it in five minutes. It is not a great burden, especially compared to what the rest of us do to keep the forum running.

So I don't want to hear people complaining about the five post limit. If our forum isn't good enough for you, then you can go somewhere else to find the ebooks.

I fully disagree! IF YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO POST FIVE TIME WHY DON'T YOU NOT COME TO THE SITE! Hmmm I got carried away. As Snoopy just said Website cost money so don't go around saying rules are dumb.

Quicherbitchin! As the two previous posters said, this site costs money. We're not obligated to provide these downloads. And 5 posts isn't a lot, I've made that many in 2 minutes. Other sites I've seen require 100 posts or more. And this may come as a shock to you, but if you've got nothing to contribute, then we're not interested in your opinion. Make the 5 posts, or get lost.

Well, in that case, allow me to be the first to apologize for getting a bit snotty about it. But there is a lot of hard work behind the scenes. Even regular members like me play our part. If you're just here for the ebooks, that's fine, as long as you make your five posts. But even so, I would encourage you to stick around even after getting them, as this forum is quite fun, and we have a lot of interesting discussions/arguments.

Don't you all realize.....Since he hasn't come back he obviously found the books somewhere else. So he just actually made this topic to contribute towards his 5 posts. But i guess he got the books somewhere else.......

Anyway!

Wait. In your post, just then, you majorly contradicted yourself. By saying that he has found the Ebooks elsewhere, but then you say he is here to get 5 posts to get access to them...
