They have such an odd way of throttling as well. Just last night I thought a download from RS had stopped, and I immediately jumped to another site. Lost client.

Rapidshare was the one service that I believe actually benefitted from all the millions of crappy file hosts. Now that most of the competition is calling it quits, its gonna go back to being crap like it was before.

Freedom is an illusion. There is no freedom. The laws of the land will always be there to control the consumer and to profit through corporations. Its always about the money.
