Now I'm seriously disgusted to see that this site links to another site which whole purpose is to leech from other sites.

What's the point in having such a site up? Is it a kind of searchbar?

A site as respectable as Abadonnia should not lower it's standard and link to such sites IMHO.

I got nothing against it. Maybe they pay kosta for the advertisement, but they probably don't.

It's at the bottom of the ads panel on the left side of the screen, below the main menu.

Free oldies does not leech. They make it perfectly clear that you will be downloading from other sites.
