Yesterday I was talking to my friend who owns a computer shop and he informed me of a disturbing development.
Apparently quite alot of people have been receiving e mails from their internet service providers warning them to stop downloading torrents, the message contained threats ranging from fines to cutting off their service.
He also showed me e mails from a program he uses to hide his torrents of several IP adresses trying to monitor his activity which were blocked.
However after talking to my brother about it, he did some research and apparently the programs that hide your activity are useless and wont protect your privacy. I have in the meantime stopped downloading torrents just to be safe.
I would like to know if you are downloading torrents are you worried? Have you received any warnings? And are you using any program to hide your activity, also if there are any knowleadgable IT people could you please tell me whether the peer blockers work etc.

So if I follow your logic; it is ok to Steal something you don't like (which is completely subjective) but not something you do like?
I am always amused at the way people try to justify theft (piracy) of any product.
