I don't know how you guys can classify collecting/leeching as something elite/lame. On another point of view collecting old things can be considered a rather freaky activity and downloading them as the time saving, more logical method. Not that this is this is the way I think!
Downloading something can't be considered collecting because you are mostly unaware of what you have batch downloaded, it's not fully intentional, not aimed towards completing a group of -something- based on your personal choice but this doesn't make leeching all that bad. I leeched a lot and now hosting a ftp so people can leech from me as much as my connection allows. (I'll regret to announce that soon
)It's great to realize that something is sitting on my storage space when I want it. And these collections should spread as much as possible.
