I say get rid of leechers, I unno about the registering thing.
But I think raising the post count to able to download things off the site should be increased slightly.
But than again.
If you think about it, the down side is.
You will have alot of random noobs registering, than spamming some random thread to get enough post to download it, than downloading it, and never showing up again, until it gets patched. Then rinse and repeat.
thats true...but umm...i still think the register thing is a good idea. cause as soon as a leecher (myself for instance) posts some working chams for combat arms, there are immediatly 30 pages of <20 post choobs going "How do i run these? hacks are confusing."
