    If I sign up to "that iso site" or "that chaos site" to access downloads will I be arrested or will my email be blocked?

    You will find me on pretty much every single ROM site that requires an account.

    Considering the age of the account, will result in the ease of finding me.

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    Being arrested isn't that bad. Being put in jail kinda sucks. But I guess it also depends on what you've done...

    The pop ups are one of the main reasons I don't use that site, it's just annoying and off-putting.

    Hahahaha, no.

    HOWEVER, use a different password for each one (NOT YOUR EMAIL PASSWORD) so if they get hacked and logins dumped, you don't have bots trying your ripped email and site password to root your email or access to other sites.

    get uBlock Origin. If you have a moral objection, unblock every site except that chaos site.
    If you still have a problem, donate to them (although i wouldn't really recommend this)

    Nope, though I wouldn't use your real info on those sites, as they aren't as secure as bigger sites. @Aurora Wright learned that the hard way...

    This is a horrible idea. Don't waste your time trying to use multiple passwords. Just think of one stupid password, like "qwerty", and use it for all of the piracy sites. Then, when one gets hacked, the hackers just get access to all of your worthless accounts on sites you don't care about.

    Better idea: pseudorandomly generate passwords such as 954ab1805beb85bda0fe4fc49cec5bfa78e9aa272bdc1e8784686b0034e2f104
    That's what I do.
