Hi Wirelings!

How about an "I love Bootleggers" list? :)
I love bootleggers because they provide all sorts of videos
and audios I would die for. I just get a little peeved if
they're charging more than I can afford at that moment.
But, then I grit my teeth and go trade for or buy a cheaper
copy of it and put up with a little generational loss.
I still love the bootleggers because I'd never have gotten
the wonderful stuff I have if they didn't exist.
Remember, If they didn't exist, you couldn't even trade for
a copy of what they they sell. Somewhere back down the line
of all those boots you have that you got by trading with
only "pure" U2 fans, there lurkes the bootlegger that made
the origional recording :)
