I don't believe torrents will come to an end. I cannot imagine that day...

I've been downloading like nuts from Piratebay and i haven't gotten a notice...well, not recently, got one some months back. Think i'll calm down until i can find a new route.

I'm not paying for any VPN or usenet though. Why would i pay to steal? WTF lol

So what are the ISPs gonna do when they find out 6 in 10 of their customers download torrents?

They aren't stupid enough to do anything, just scare you

Usenet sucks. Anything old always ends up damaged or corrupt. It was pretty bad.

You're doing it wrong or your provider sucks.

I'm pretty sure I wasn't doing it wrong and it was giganews.

There are many uploads of the same exact content. Are you repairing the corrupted files with pars?

The ISPs gain nothing positive from this outcome, so quit your bitchin' being a hot-head and erupting before checking your facts and please, please don't blame the poor, sweet little innocent ISPs, ummmm k?

Seriously though - I can't stand ISPs and their practices, but it's just the nature of the beast. It just so happens, this time 'round, the ISPs want exactly what the common ISP customer wants, and that's the government and private watchdog agencies out of our donkey screwing business. I think I heard that somewhere, like in Japan people are getting so damn serious jail time if they're caught pirating; any truth to that?

It was a while ago. If giganews emails me with another free trial, I'll look up repairing with pars.

Uploads have pars files associated to them, some newsreader have built in repair if you have their par files like Grabit. To manually repair the files yourself, you will need quickpar. You're ****ed if you download a bunch of rar files, and one is corrupted, that's where par files come in.
