WHY VIRGIN MEDIA D:
I hardly use torrents, but my step-dad uses them all the time.
Lets suppose they go through with this, and decide to prosecute everyone guilty of filesharing.
I don't think Britain would be able to deal with the number of unemployments and prison sentences that would result.
But just think how happy the banks would be processing all those fines!
What Banks? Their staff would all be unemployed and in jail.
There wouldn't even be any banks to bail out!
Oh no, they've found the secret underworld of the internet.
I've never even heard of Gnutella and eDonkey, why don't they mention Limewire and Kazaa whilst they're at it?
Though people seem to use Usenet these days.
Somehow, I always suspected Richard Branson would be involved in the destruction of modern society in Britain...
Although I'm a Virgin customer, they aren't my ISP.
Edonkey2000 started it I think, or was it Napster?
There are others they didn't mention
Emule, shareaza, IRC etc.
oh no! it's doomsday
meh just use a ip mask and hop from ip to ip until the amount of ip's is untrack-able
That's the thing, I'd say that (most of) the users on here are fairly technical minded, but how many of us have set up some form of file sharing for a friend who can barely turn on a PC? The majority of torrent users probably don't know much more than click, wait, close Torrent program when completed so that you don't seed. And getting rid of that majority will make a big difference to the bottom line.
Isn't there a relation between Gnutella and Limewire? IIRC Limewire connects to the Gnutella network? If it is, this is bad. I think I'm gonna download every play-worthy ROM now
Great timing for me as well. Limewire downloads for me are very slow (a la dial-up speed)
You can encrypt it and no one knows whats inside
I'm looking at the bigger picture, 1st you had DX and a couple of other sites unable to list their flashcarts for sale, and now this!
eMule uses the eDonkey Network. Shareaza uses Gnutella, Gnutella 2, eDonkey and BitTorrent.
Limewire uses Gnutella and BitTorrent, etc. I would say what Kazaa uses but I have forgotten, I believe it's another Gnutella client.
fuck i hope they don't try to bring some shit like that here i need my usenet!
Dude... just enable encryption in uTorrent and you are done. There you go ISPs. Analyze that. Even more, do that on private trackers instead of mininova etc.
Doesn't matter, I don't really use bittorrent, Is it safe to do direct downloads from rom sites, are they going to inspect that as well? =/
Gnutella, eDonkey are long dead anyway, they are wasting their time, no one uses them anymore.
