    My understanding is the the HIGH DL'rs are the ones they go after. Were you getting a lot of the stuff?

    You can go on there for the first time and download the one "they're" watching and get a letter.

    I know one guy IRL who got the "red letter" (apparently Comcast sends red letters in these parts) and he has a fuckin' server rack in his house full of DL stuff.

    He switched to commercial and hasn't heard a peep since.

    Huh, you'd think they'd go after GOT, then. They'd be able to send out a ton of letters that way.

    I started with Napster, then moved to Morpheus, then Kazaa, then Limewire, then discovered Pirate Bay.
