They're probably paying a host to host their documents and stuff. So they aren't getting anything out of it and we'd be using their resources. If they are savvy enough and upset enough with the link, they can find where the requests are originating from (in this case, Blowoutcards forum) and block any more requests that referred from this site.

Google, on the other hand, has data servers with very large pipes and don't pay a third party to host their stuff. So if you have a Google account, you can right click this document, save as to your local machine and then drag and drop it onto your Google drive (link at the top of Google Mail page). Then you would click through the options to share this. They block google drive where I work otherwise I would do this if I was at home.

It's not a big deal but it's a kind thing to do since groupbreakchecklists probably assembles all these PDFs, pays for hosting and receives nothing in return ...
Thanks man wasn't aware of that. I took the link down because I am at work and don't have the capabilities either. Thanks again

NP, I know it's confusing. FWIW, if Blowout's okay with it, you can send users straight to the homepage of that site and tell them to look for the list. They have ads on the front of their site which must be how they handle hosting costs. Alternatively, for anyone reading that needs the list, here's a cached copy from Google's servers.

Order # 225305
Moving to active.

When sending an Online Payment to the host, protect yourself by sending as goods (not gift). If a payment is sent as a "gift", you eliminate your chance of filing a claim or chargeback should the need arise. If possible, fund the payment with a credit card to be fully protected.

Well guys I need to fill another spot someone backed out on us and luckily I have 1 backup spot lined up just waiting for him to choose his #. If anyone would like the other spot or knows anyone please have them fill it ASAP so we can keep this moving.

Come on guys let's get those last few payments in. I am going away with the family today. Taking the kids to the Baltimore aquarium so I won't be on as much as usual but I will be checking in for payments and then will submit for our random so that we can begin drafting this evening. Ok thanks let's get paid up!
