aside - why ed2k over bittorrent?
1) Lifetime of files.
With BT, a file can be dead after a week, a few weeks, a month. With ed2k, I can click links which have been posted 4-7 years ago and they still have sources.
2) Quality of files.
With BT, I often get fakes when DLing new stuff, and lots of other stuff has bad quality, like no cropping, or no IVTCing, or simply too small a filesize to achieve anything qualitywise. With ed2k, there is some sort of quality control, and files being posted with bad quality get treated like that too.
Abnd besides those, I'm old-fashioned and I don't need "Mah files! Naow!!" because I actually do have some patience
