I don't recommend clicking on these links until we get to know this poster.

I used my linux box to go there and it all says Southern Gospel with stuff like "I've got a mansion" etc. Looked like a Southern revival tent collection. In that linux is not going to play biab files I left it as that.

I figured it was probably another violation of the 'John Ford Law of First Posters'.

So, they are not selling anything?

Not that I saw.

The first posters I like the best start out with a slam of the software on post #1.

As I may have implied, it's often hard to return your shiny new version of Band in a Box to pirate bay, and get the 0$ refund.

When someone stomps their feet when I know full well live help is available and they have to know now how much space it takes to install something and after a few days they get demanding I become pretty sure they don't have a legal version. And I try and not reply, unless I decide to use the half of the wit I learned.

Well, the rule isn't 100%; however, even if they are not selling anything, It can still drive up hits to the site, from which ad revenue can be generated. I didn't click on it; I've found too many other sources of MIDI and BIAB files, so much so that it's more than I can even listen to in a lifetime.

Yeah, you are safe on those sites, one is some 'standards' in biab format from an Englishman, the other is Southern 'gospel', both have props to Band in a Box.

My locked down ubuntu browser made no complaints, I don't do very much internet from Windows7 on the media computer. Besides it's downstairs and I hate stairs.

I still don't like the idea of drive-by posting of just links without any other interaction and further comment.
