The Remnants of ... Blex's Ratio Hater Page
in the middle to late '90s, pirated software (warez) and eventually
mp3s were distributed largely via private or publicly owned FTP sites
(thus, leading to the birth of the now legendary Blex's Page of Good Mp3).
In the infancy of internet file transferring, GREED began to pollute
the underground world of warez and mp3s. In order do download anything
cool you had to first upload something cool! Unacceptable!! Ratios
represented a direct contradiction as to why anybody would seek to
pirate anything in the first place! I've never been one to believe in
the old saying that greed is good. In fact, I believe in quite the
opposite. Cooperation, giving, love, and mutual respect and well being
of one another are overwhelmingly the most successful aspects of a
righteous, peaceful, and structured egalitarian society.
According to the guest
book for this page, on July 21st, 1997, while my mp3 page was slowly
growing in popularity, I decided that enough is enough and this page
Fast forward through the
years leading up to modern times and ratios DO NOT EXIST!!! Yes, in
order to boost my complete lack of real life self-confidence and
dignity, I can now proudly say that (as you will read below) THE BLEX RULE is now THE STANDARD method of distributing digital files on the internet!
When the FTP sites were removed off of Blex's Page of Good Mp3
in Black February of 1998, the demise of the FTP sites list left a give
and take legacy on the internet that continues to this day!!! Torrents,
message boards, e-mule, IRC, napster, kazaa, etc..etc.. ALL were
created and of course were RATIO FREE!
It was my belief then
and it still is today that when greed, unequal power, and oligarchic
rule are eliminated the advancement of the human race accelerates at a
faster pace! Adam Smith's concepts of competition BE DAMNED !!!
Below, UNTOUCHED (except
for 2 dead graphics removed and a note by the guest book) from 1997,
the historic and legendary page released out of cryogenic stasis for everybody to enjoy!
Welcome to the official ratio hater page. We all hate them,
now it's time to do something about how lame these ratios are.
There are lots of lame stupid things
out there, and the main one is ratios. For the best mp3 sites list ever
made with 100% working, LEECH, and no ratio mp3 sites you can goto Blex's Page of Good Mp3.
hasn't been updated lately, so if it looks familiar all the time it's
because nothing is ever done in the big warez and mp3 channels on the
internet to put an
end to this lame ass idea of ratios.
What Ratios Are
A ratio is used in warez (illegal software), mp3 (illegal
music), and xxx (porn) FTP servers as a method to get files added to
the server. The files get added by having the user connected not be
allowed to download any files that are available until the person
uploads a certain amount of either files or bytes. If the user tries to
get a file the user receives a "Permission Denied" error or another
type of error saying that they must upload first. Ratios are used by
numbers. If there is a 1:5 ratio in effect the users connected would
have to upload 1 megabyte of files to receive a 5 megabyte file. If a
FTP server does not have a ratio and you can connect to the site and
download without uploading it is called a "leech" site.
Ratios mainly are used just so the GREEDY operator of the
site can increase his collection because the person cannot be nice
enough to give the files out for free. There is really no reason at all
to be uploading files to this anonymous site op, because you
will probably be giving software to somebody, disconnecting, and then
never seeing the site op or the site the site op runs ever again.
Prime Examples Of The
Lameness Of Ratios
Ratios are usually used by stupid ignorant little lamers
that download a copy of war-ftp from jgaa, goto irc, turn the server
on, put in a 1:3 ratio, and expect to get warez. They do this because
they cannot get warez any other way because they are lamers. Lamers
also put sites up on 28.8 servers, which is lame also because you can
not run an FTP server on a 28.8 modem!!!
This is a typical lame ass ratio site that was posted in irc
channel #zeraw on undernet: "Perm site up at
184.108.40.206, 14.4 site, 1:2 ratio, 1 user max, bans for not
uploading, bans for not making directories for your uploads!" I
got a kick/ban for yelling at this loser for putting this site up, the
owner of the site got to stay in the channel...figure that one out.
How To End Ratios
To end ratios it must be a group effort, not an individual
one. I propose putting in THE BLEX RULE
on every single warez and mp3 channel on every single IRC
server. THE BLEX RULE simply is this, if
you post a ratio site you will get a ban from the channel. If you go on
IRC a lot PRESSURE YOUR OPS for THE BLEX RULE.
see a lamer posting a ratio site tell him he is a lamer! This way
ratios will become a thing of the past.
People say that if there were no ratios the spread of warez
would stop. Nothing is farther from WRONG. First off if I get
warez/mp3's so I can get the shit for free and not
buy it. I'm sure everybody else (99%) of the people think the same way.
If every single warez/mp3 site on the net was a leech site the warez
world would just prosper (yet alone
everybody would be happy). If you want to start a site you don't go out
posting ratios sites expecting people to upload to you, you go out and
get some warez from another LEECH
site out there and download off of that. Once you have gained enough
warez and have a fast connection (cable modem, t1, t3) you can start up
a LEECH server. Now repeat that
process and the warez would FLY! No more would you have to suffer
though lame ratio sites ever again. Just make everything leech and
everything will be fine! There are also
a lot of great nice people out there that actually like uploading (if I
had a fast connection I would also), if you make them happy they would
be glad to upload to you.
Spread The Word To End Ratios
To help and spread the word that ratios suck, just right
click and save a graphic on this page and put it on your site on the
www. Put the link back to this page at
http://www.cybrzn.com/~blex/noratios and you are all set. The word will
then be out on the plan to end ratios and make the warez world HAPPY!!!
