    Because i can get my comics as they are released in single, minutes after and not have to wait several minutes for it to download it through a torrent.
    Also, as much as i read, i'd have to wait two or so days just for the comics to be scanned, released and then packaged and released by Minutemen/DCP.

    It's just easier going through the websites that post them instantly as you get them faster and easier.
    Rapidshare + DownThemAll = Win.

    I gotta say, when the torrent hookups were down a while back, I HATED rapidshare sites.

    First off, rapidshare and the others like it, but especially rapidshare, sucks, and you have to spend all day typing captcha codes, then there's wading through all the different sites and "thanks" posts to find a book. Such a hassle, when in two clicks I can see everything new, and click once to download it.

    Totally worth the slight delay. If I had one complaint, it's the stupid tags the uploaders add to titles. Screw you buddy, I can see you uploaded it anyway, no need to add your stupid name to the title making the cbr name stretch across the screen, lol.

    Mighty Avengers 014 [dcp][minutemen][2008][secret invasion tie-in]{megan}[kryptonia]{spellboros}{ttodddy}[marvel].cbr

    Some of those are scanners, and I don't mind that really, they did the work, but someone that upped to a torrent site, please..

    Torrents are MUCH easier.

    I'd rather have DDL's. Having to maintain my torrent list and clear out what's been fully seeded and moving files fom my torrent folder to wherever they belong (meanwhile trying to keep track of what has and hasn't been moved) is a pain in the ass. Besides, I have only so much upload speed to go around. I can only seed so many things at once.

    Rapidshare is only good if you get a premium account, otherwise it's absolute fucking shit. Agreed on the titles, man. Shit gets fucking annoying as hell.

    Even when it does work, it takes 20 steps to do what you could have in one or two through ftp.
