Buying content for a cost, posting content for free and parts in-between.

Hello

I've been here for a while and mostly been pretty quiet but I'm hoping people here can weigh in with their opinions on my thoughts about the users who actively buy content from paid sites and then giving it up to others. My main question I guess is pretty straight forward and that is, Why?

This is certainly not meant in any way as an attempt to criticize those who do this I'm absolutely one of the people who appreciates it but I find myself in a situation now where through great effort I've got a large collection of Minisuka and Girlz-High content (approx. 160Gb) and I'm having trouble just putting it out there.

I can't make a torrent because my internet isn't adequate for large scale seeding
I can't use file hosts because to post it here I'd have to use Filejoker.
I don't want to pay for a seedbox because that's a bit too much to ask.
I don't know if I should

Also how do you justify to yourself distributing this stuff at your own expense for nothing in return do you just want to see the gravure genre grow by making it more accessible? Do you think it's too expensive for people to buy in the first place so you're acting as a Robin Hood or do you just want the internet points? Or do you get enough of a kick back from affiliate links etc?

Most of all I quiver with the thought that this will end up on one of those god awful forums that you have to buy points to access to content which is more expensive than just buying from the owner. Are there ways to avoid this without watermarking and ruining the files?

Any input would be great. Do you think distributing this kind of stuff is damaging the industry or making it more accessible and therefore helping it? Sorry if this seems all over the place but hat reflects my thoughts about this.

Hi, there, friend.

I would say not many are posting content at their expense. Maybe less than 10% (if that I bet) actually buy content, they get it from torrent sites. That's why for any one title if you look here or on the library they are all the same copies just shared again, encoded down to 720p or less, or they make it onto streaming tube sites (they are actually better looking ones now, not just dark background seedy looking YT clones) and of course on filehosts. Both the filehosts and the streaming sites generate revenue, potentially, for the one providing it there. Hopefully you've come across such posts about this in the forums here since you've been around since 2017. There are "scene" groups they try to get things out first and all that stuff. Not sure if that's still going strong today, but, it all comes down to money. What better way to get more money than to not have to spend money in the first place, so, they grab from anywhere and post it up.

If you want to share, that's great. Yes, here you would necessarily have to provide FJ links.

This probably isn't the case for the majority of people but for some its just the act of sharing that they enjoy. Posting things, filling requests, sharing content with others that gives them enjoyment. They do it because they want to, not because they expect something in return.

Yeah I guess the feel part of the community is a big thing for a lot of people. I think i might just try and make a torrent but perhaps share it to people who have good seeding ratios first to help out with the initial load.

In the current state of the AV industry, the only thing worth buying is usenet

I didn't buy anything legally but made several hundreds uploads on private trackers
Uploaded about 70 tb on torrents
I'm interested in saving something I like while it's old, rare, unpopular. Besides, if no one does that, there won't be anything left

Filesharing with filehosting almost doesn't work, it's just temporary storage where almost all files die in a couple of months or even weeks. DHT doesn't work either, no one wants to seeding. On private trackers many uploads live more than 10 years
