I just tried to download a couple small supposedly free slow download files off AO and i get "You don't have permission to download this file" WTF !?

Has AO now made all files only premium ?

rather than rant at AO, there are a few reasons why it happens, and none to us, we have an all free file policy, request the uploader to make it free

Is this not a file host discussion thread ? And it's not a rant... So i tried several random file just for the hell of it and they all came back with same "error"... So is this a filejoker error or has AO now effectively made all files Premium ?

That is where you are totally wrong, we do not have any control over how the poster does his/her posts, there are many times I have removed/requested it to be sorted, FREE links are in the rules of the site

But you guys are clearly not enforcing the free link rule as i just try random files and each and every one of the FJ links come back with the same error.
Now I don't know if this is a FJ constant error or you guys are just letting everybody put up premium links only...

Like i'll buy a premium membership once a year for a bit... but not if i'm just downloading the odd file once every couple months and especially when FJ isn't really used by anybody outside of AO..

You know you'll come back with some non answer as you usually do but i would hope somebody from FJ would shed some light on this.

we do not know until it is reported, and you was told before

all you have to do is report the thread not rant about it

but carry on ranting you will get ignored
