Comment Relatively pointless (Score 1) 195

I don't know about the streaming sites, but I know the blocking of torrent sites has had little effect or the more (or less) tech savvy people who use them. People get around not being able to browse for their torrents by subscribing to torrent RSS feeds (for TV), and by using things like Tor if they absolutely need to browse the Pirate Bay or other sites.

The trackers are not blocked, and therefore the torrents still work fine.

Kinda pointless.
