I wouldn't know to be honest, I don't dowload much stuff aside from some TV shows and tennis matches but I have a couple of friends who literally download tons of stuff and they never had any problems.Dangerous not as in viruses (I am on a mac), but I think the person I spoke to said torrents were illegal (he downloads movies) and perhaps I was wondering whether ISP's can take action on me if i am found downloading torrents.
This guy uses some 32 dollar software to download which perhaps masks IP's. He claims to be a software professional (but he's in rehab or detox for a few months, so i cant contact him).
I use uTorrent.Okay, my login is still there, I can see the torrents and I have a ratio of 12.73.
What torrent client do you use?
