This is a bit different from arguing whether it is a plague or a blessing, if subbed>dubbed or viceverse. My question is: should the 1st episode of American Naruto be up for DL? I can see both sides of the debate, and I would like some well though out, coherant, and tolerant opinions expressed. If you believe someone is completely in the wrong, say so, not "YOU ARE ALL JACKASSES" even though you may be right. Thanks! =) I can argue for it. I don't have cable. I can't afford it. So, as a consequence, I never watch T.V. at home. I am merely curious about how the voice acting is going to be, to hear it with my own ears. No, I cannot go to a friend's house, simply because none of my friends live a reasonable distance from me, just to watch Naruto. I wouldn't mind if they put it up for DL, as long as they took it out after the first, say, three days, and request that any fan that has it please delete it. To remove NF from any harm, any statement made on the mainpage about making it available could be easily deleted. Mods could ask the forum goers to please not mention it, to just say "Have you seen/heard the dubbed" not "have you dled the episode from NF?" This could be easily be remedied without excessive abuse of the mods (poor mods. ^_^). Just as some forums have a program where certain words are edited or changed into something else when posted (i.e. shit=poo). They could set up when the phrase i.e. "have you dled dubbed Naruto from NF?" be changed to "Have you seen the new naruto on tv?" However (this is my counter argument) many people are not as scrupulous. They will get the episode and distribute it over the net and keep it on their hard drives. People other wise motivated to watch the anime and pay for cable will be watching it for free on the net. They won't erase it, they'll simply archive it. It's very greedy of me to want to watch the episode without wanting to pay to watch it, or making the necessary effort to go to a friend's house to watch it. Besides, if NF did put it up for DL, Viz isn't stupid. They'd find out within that 3 day time period. They probably have lurkers here on the forums and a guy monitoring NF from time to time. They can save a screen shot for proof. Besides, keeping someone from saying "ddi ya dl naruto dubbed from NF?" is tantamount to stopping them from breathing with purely psychic power. It's not going to happen. Anybody got anything to say?
