Re: hosting looper's delight site?

Are all these people loopers ? Obviously there are a number of hits from 
same person but have you any idea who these people are, (I don't expect you
to know them all personally but you know what I mean).
I often use Amazon for books & CD's do you benefit if I access their web
site through the LD site ? If so , I'll go that route in future.
