Comment Re: Programs using BitTorrent (Score 1) 175

FUD, I've been downloading legal stuff and probably pirating more illegal stuff with torrent since ~2008.
The only time I got cought was for seeding something really large over 50x and I only got an email that had the name and hash of the said torrent and said torrents are harmful and you should use an anti-virus and more FUD like what you just said. It's been 2 years since and I continue to torrent because I can't legally obtain the media I want and my country has no extradition to anywhere in the world.
When they make it legal to buy their stuff in my country then we can talk money.
