On the official uTorrent site, there are attached forums… for which the premise is supposed to be… support of the uTorrent user community.
Because the official uTorrent Support Forums are being run by a few kids who are on some sort of a power trip – real “legends in their own minds”. They “lock” and “trash” every topic posted by new users for a multitude of stupid reasons — reasons such as:
(1) if that question has EVER been asked before
(2) if that question has EVER been answered before
(3) if that question is just not “smart” enough
(4) if the person asking the question is “obviously new to bittorrent”
etc., etc., etc…
They make it very clear that they are NOT there to assist new users in any way… But that they are they only there to assist themselves… in their own little fiefdom… and to learn – themselves – by being exposed to real experts.
New users are NOT permitted to ask questions there… And, further…
OTHER users are not even permitted to Answer the questions of new users…
In fact, I myself, was BANNED from that forum simply for helping a new user… by answering his questions… Can you believe that!?
I don’t know how large of a company BitTorrent, Inc. is… But it amazes me that a company like that is letting a couple of mean-spirited young kids on a power trip ruin their entire official “User Support Forums”, and ruin the user experience of their own product…
SO…. until BitTorrent, Inc. wakes up to what’s going on over there… on there own web site…
I’ll be providing uTorrent Support Forums… right here…
(1) HELPING NEW USERS is our first priority! ~and~
(2) There’s no such thing as a stupid question!
Please come, ask your questions, and answer a few too… at:
Leave your support questions (and answers) in the COMMENTS section below…
UPDATE: Now that I have scrapped Windows and Mac, and instead only use Ubuntu… BitTorrent is built-in to the operating system. This is so so slick. No need to install a program like uTorrent any more — because Ubuntu comes with BitTorrent clients, Transmission and Deluge, built-in. (see Windows vs. Ubuntu’s Best Applications)
The best place on the Internet for the latest in torrenting news.
Here’s a kickass torrent tracker that’s not afraid to wear their flag with pride.
Home of an excellent video to counter the harsh and even obscene anti-piracy shorts you see in theaters and commercial DVD movies.
Free yourself from the closed proprietary ‘Big Brother’ corporate greed of Microsoft, Apple, etc. Choose Open Source Free Software.
Are you using Ubuntu Linux on your home computer yet? Do you use Google? Did you know that the Google search engine you use every day operates 100% on Linux?
