    Torrented, scared to death!

    Ok i torrented from thepiratebay but like 5 or 6 seconds after i torrented the file i stopped in fear of getting caught (i had once before).
    if i torrented for even 5 or 6 seconds can they still catch me?!?
    it still said 0% so i dont even know if my IP was logged or not.

    Edit: I had 1 seeder...

    If your so scared why did you even start trying to get a torrent?

    If you worried - just don't do it!

    I've been doing it since napster came out and never had any problems. I'm now downloading SSL from the newsgroups mind you. It's just a hell of a lot faster.

    Ive downloaded 6 wii games because i wanted to play them. For guitar hero 5, i downloaded that because im not paying 60$ for 80 new songs that actualy might suck. Plus its the same game over and over agian.

    I have been using torrents for years, and never been busted.
    If you are paranoid use filesharing instead. I just signed up with megaupload premium and download at full bandwidth.

    i have torrented for years now and not been caught. Piratebay is always a scare for people becuase of the media but i never had problems yet. Just look for private trackers and get invites into them or just use newsgroups.
    If my post helps click the Thank button ^_^

    PeerGuardian is old... PeerBlock took over where they left off.

    I still use PG2 and it does it's job for me. I may look into this new PeerBlock though.
