Duh! Hows come we don’t want people to leech our files? I was sorta stoked by the idea that just anyone, anywhere in the world could hear my little ditties. In fact that was probably the main reason I uploaded them. I never liked the grading system that rated for something other than Vocaloid quality. So the idea that someone other than members could hear these efforts gave me more reason to upload. Now, I dunno, I guess I’ll have to wait and see.

the password system doesnt prevent non-members from downloading files….. anyone can drag the password over and get the file. It will simply confuse most non-human automated link followers thats all.

This should reduce the bandwidth consumed by the site and help us have a more acurate idea of how many times a file has been accessed by a real person.

I see, Joe. So most of the 1200 or so downloaders of Happy Birthday were not human. That explains a lot. <img class=” />

hahaha! Maybe….. I really don’t know how much leeching actually happens, to be honest. This feature is enabled by default, so I just left it on.

It only stops the computerizrd leeches. It doesn’t affect us real leeches at all.

I’ve got my very own celebrity leech. It’s Cary Grant (real name Archie Leech) <img class=” />
