Feds shutting down torrent sites

I would steer clear of public trackers for the moment, DoHS is taking IP addresses.

For the time being, until the government catches up with the past and figures out what people use them for. By then there will already be a better way to pirate shit.

The problem is the amount of traffic.  Examples are needed, but for the average pirate it's business as usual.

I came to class stoned out of my mind every day, i chugged vodka in the back of class, i put dead fish in the ceiling tiles. i put a gallon of old milk and orange juice in the file cabinet before winter vacation. i brought snakes in a tied up sweater and let them loose during class. i didnt go to school to learn, i went because i had to. i didnt care, and i didn't fucking listen to that stupid bitch. and i still don't fucking care. i tore the pages out of her books and burned them, and threw away all the books in the class, two books per day.  :twobooks:

Man fuck America and their shit. I seriously can't stand their "Move out the way let us big American's deal with everyone" attitude. They've trying to police the internet? Please. In a few hours I'm going to download some illegal music, watch some illegal tv, and smoke my illegal bud while simultaneously graffiting fuck the police across the local bacon house. (okay not the last bit)

They're gonna try and stop me, and all the while people are dying in their borders. People are starving, people are homeless, people are broke with no where to go, and they spend their time doing this shit!? FUCK YOU AMERICA. FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FUCK YOU!

How paranoid should I really be about pirating shit? I've been doing it since Napster (well, I guess I was copying floppys before then) and I've never gotten so much as a letter from my ISP.

I download shit nonstop too. I've never bothered to hide, because I've never felt a need to.

Is it really an issue? Sure, they catch people once in a while...but those are just to scare people anyway :rolleyes:

I'm more paranoid about posting here than I am pirating shit.


--------------------
Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?
