    Because they are the OFFICIAL LP boards. This site could get in trouble.....now get over it and find some other way to get your jollies.

    Because the LPMB is a mess and allows lots of illegal mp3 trading and teenie-bopper behavior to go down. Those forums are moderated as if a pair of blind mice were behind the reigns and there is no way we are going to allow our forums to become that way.

    It doesn't matter if Linkin Park says it's alright for mp3s to be downloaded, the bottom line is that it's illegal for us to allow the trade of those files because of the legal situations with the RIAA. Many sites have been shut down for hosting LPU and album mp3s, and we are not going to allow the same to happen to us. Incase you haven't noticed, Linkin Park have changed their stance on downloading because thanks to greedy people like you, they have lost 4.5 Million sales of Hybrid Theory alone.

    If you seriously love the LPMB that much then you should do us all a favor and go back to those forums because we could do without your constant complaining. You have been nothing but a whiner here since you joined, and we're all through trying to be nice to you when you seem to have nothing but problems with the way this website works.

    Because of your behavior you are now warned for constantly complaining about the mp3s. If you continue to act this way you can be sure it will result from you being permanently banned from these forums. So therefore I recommend you stop.

    Plus, please for the love of all things sacred, type like you have higher then a third grade education. "Pist" is not a word.

    Well, I suppose I can put in my two cents here. The sites that got busted for hosting mp3s were hosting stuff from the LPU CDs, or official albums. I don't agree with people that do that, it's unfair to the band. But the majority of mp3s that people want are either from the EP, or demos, live tracks, etc. Even giving out the EP songs is kinda iffy, because that was an LPU cd. But I don't see a problem with trading demos and stuff, since they aren't copyrighted (to my knowledge). So the simplest rule to follow would be not to trade any officially released songs.

    One other thing, if someone was going to come after a site, I would think they'd go after the official site that's more well-known first, instead of a fansite.

    Well, that's just my opinion, take it however you want.

    We still are not going to allow mp3s on this site unless they are up for download in our media section. And since we have no media section right now, that means no mp3s at all.

    One last thought, people that constantly ask for mp3s on this site, there's lots of other sites you could go to for them, so I don't see why people make such a big deal about it.
