I guess the title says it all.
Which way of bootleg trading do you prefer? The "old-school" way via snail mail or the more modern one via FTPs, torrents, etc.?
Respectively, are here still any traders here or only people taping stuff for themselves?

I personally love snail mail - always feeling like a small child when I open the post box and there's a package full of new shows :D.
The only problem is that there might be some trouble with the customs - that's why I limit snail mail to Europe...

My biggest problem with snail mail trading is the long wait, as well as the occasional duties problems. In other words, if anything goes wrong during a snail mail trade, the price and wait time is doubled instantly.

With an online trade, you can have 10 DVD's uploaded within a little over a week, as well as instant feedback.
