    They need t get some new talent and some real engineers to mix and master.
    there was a lil wayne song that really cracked me up. At one point he talks about concealing a gun, then at another he talks about wearing skinny jeans... you can't conceal your shame in skinny jeans, let alone anything else lmao

    if youre gonna pirate, just use peer block..sheesh. Even then, you have to get caught 6 times to be throttled for only a limited time? It actually is a good policy, it gives people the benefit of the doubt and punishes extreme offenders.

    Not so easy if you have DSL and a static IP. I have Comcast cable and if I refresh my modem it changes my IP since it is a "rolling" IP. Pretty much all businesses use static IP's but most of your home cable services "refresh" IP's from time to time.

    i never thought about that. but isnt the main way people get caught is (for example)
    1. you pirate a Miramax movie
    2. Miramax monitors it, tells your ISP
    3. ISP sends you email on Miramax's behalf saying "stahp"

    Basically your ISP has better things to do than see every single thing youre downloading, especially since you can torrent completely legal things..am i right?

    it doesn't work. you're better off disabling upload while downloading. they only monitor those that share, those that just take slide under their radar.

    seedbox/VPN makes all this pointless really. DLing anything risky on a torrent open to everyone without the right protection is not safe(or smart).

    both VPN's and seedbox's are dirt cheap on a monthly plan(looking at under ~20$(USD) a month. Its also a great way to store other things like photos.

    also its not worth DLing the music of today. And if you need past stuff odds are you can find someone with the CD who can legally make you a *mix tape*

    You are correct. Most people that get caught have static IP's and are caught at random. If you have a cable residential modem just refresh it time to time and get a new IP. To make sure you don't have a static IP just check your bill. It will be listed if you do
