<rant>I hate going to some forums and finding out that you HAVE to sign up to view them. This is the most retarded thing I have ever heard of. Maybe if they are private forums its understandable. But if anyone can sign up, then you should never, ever force them to. Most of the time a user will simply go there and leave (like I do).

There is an argument that it gets your board a lot of members, but I mean honestly! They will come, sign up, read the forums once and leave forever. So that you are stuck with a bunch of inactive members. It's very silly if you ask me.

If anyone out there reading this has a forum that you need to sign up to read. STOP IT!!! Take it from someone who has been doing this for years. I know what I'm talking about.

Have a good day!

when you come to think about it dont u have sympathy for those retards out there?

they are probably so desperate to have people signing up that they have probably forgot about that issue..

if they only read the forum once it must be REALLY boring.. or maybe they didnt even give the forum a chance.. or maybe they ACTUALLY have a life and forgot about it..

I know how you feel.

But whats more annoying is when your looking for a download, which in fact, requires a membership to that site.

Blah.

Agreed. But that's how the porn industry gets you.

Just kidding.
Boxtorrents requires registration in order to search, but if you run an Advanced Search with Google and search only the boxtorrents.com domain, you can download any torrent without registry.

It's not torrents that I'm worried about, I just use www.torrents.to for anything of the such. It lets you simultaneously search 8 or some odd websites.. pretty handy.

I'm just complaining since sometimes I'll look for cs maps or something on google and those sites come up...
