People still use BitTorrent instead of the decentralized Kademlia to download black copies?

Stay away from the popular stuff until it becomes less popular and less likely to be monitored.

Just download a decent IP blocklist. That will keep known bad peers (monitors etc) from connecting.

WARNING they can still track you. It's best not to use torrents at all anymore. ISPs are helping track people as well, I know several people that received lawsuits from it. It's not safe anymore. Find a different source for downloading if you must, or just stick within your means and pay for what you can and open source the rest.

I was going to but I deleted my post as I don't want to break the rules of the forum. But you might as well not use anything and wait for a lawsuit if you use an ip block list.

Humm, lets see I have a big brother fear piece posted on a media site? Or I have the fact that I nor anyone I have ever known directly has ever been busted for illegal file sharing. Which to go with, bait or reality? :lol:
If you don't like it, make something better
If you can't make something better, adapt
If you can't do either ball your panties up and cry.

Complaining is like masticating most anyone can do it.
However doing it in public is really hardcore.
