Ever been caught torrenting?
    #11881117 - 01/22/10 08:41 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

My cable internet was shut off yesterday, call em up today and it was because I downloaded the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Christmas Special like 3 weeks ago. The tech dude was pretty cool and turned it back on. Apparently they dont care if you download but you cant upload. I watched the movie twice and deleted it awhile ago, that doesn't really seem wrong to me. I've never heard of people actually getting in trouble for file sharing, besides that girl who got sued for like 100000 million billion dollars for downloading music a few years ago.



BUT this makes me wonder, what else do they track? Is an employee reading this?
:tinfoil:


Man.. I had season 4 and 5 of weeds like 80% done too.

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus.
All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the
octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV.
But then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns.
Also he got a race car.
Is any of this getting through to you?

i got a letter from comcast a few years ago cause i downloaded a movie. scared the crap out of me at first.

use transport encryption. they will be able to see its bittorrent traffic but they cant see exactly what it is.

havent had a problem since.

i got a letter from my ISP once saying they were contacted by universal studios regarding a movie i downloaded. they said there was a 3 strike policy before i'd lose my internet connection, and asked me to either secure my wi-fi connection or delete my p2p software.

this was a one time thing after years of downloading. i still do it, but i use: http://www.peerblock.com/

How would someone implement a Transport encryption service/software?

no I've never been caught torrenting.  I've been almost exclusively on private trackers when I torrent for years.  I don't use public torrents for anything.

Yikes... I just downloaded Seasons 1-4 of IASIP...

I've probably downloaded thousands of dollars worth of software and movies over the past 3 years. Like you said, they don't care if you download but you can't upload. That's why I never seed anything. I've been fine so far. :thumbup:

Well, if you're seeding, isn't that uploading to others?

I can't just be lucky....

I actually found this site by mistake looking for a demonoid invite once i heard about demonoid. But not even a full 7 days after i got on to demonoid, my damn internet was shut off by cox. I think it was because i was seeding a moive cause i was tryna raise my ratio. But im not sure, some people warned me to stop for a while. Im not sure if its safe for me to torrent or not. this was all about 2 weeks ago.
