That way, people new to emulation will be able to find out where to get roms, and people who actually post worthwhile messages on the board won't get pissed off at them for taking up space. Also, there will be an understanding that, if a person makes a rom-request on any of the other boards, he'll immediately be banned without a warning. I think a lot of this hating of people who beg for roms is because the people who know where to get the roms dont want the downloading bandwidth to be compromised by more people, which is extremely selfish. Everyone was new at one time.

It has been tried before. Rombeggaz don't usually care where they post - and who else will visit a begging board in the first place? Most romz can be easily found using a bog-standard search engine. Even better, pay some money and get a decent usenet access.

Why should we make it easy for people to steal? They should learn it themselves like most of us did. I never asked for a rom on a message board and found everything I needed reading bulletin boards, using search engines and checking usenet newsgroups. If a romz request is sensible and polite, it will usually be answered, either by myself or others.

I'd visit the board to help out new guys. When people post rom requests on the other boards, I often help them out. However, most rom requests are either deleted immediately or the person who asked where to get the rom is bambarded with insults and no useful info. Sure they can search for roms, but a lot of people arent as smart as us and aren't capable of using the minute amount of gray matter in their skulls to successfully complete such simple tasks. People are going to keep on asking for roms on the other boards and continue to annoy us if they dont have a moron forum of their own. Sure the board will be idiot-ridden, but, I'm sure, knowledgable people such as myself will decide to be philanthropists every once in a while and help out the mentally challenged. You could call it the "Lamer Board"....give it a try!!!
