if i knew what you were saying i might be able to tell if its taboo or not ....

but it has confused my simple mind ...

Unless your talking about the Pontiac Torrent ....based on the eqinox/vue platform ...i think they just relesed pricing on it

Are you reffering to Bit Torrent, and file sharing?

I've heard that MIAA, MPIA, RIAA or whatever those aholes name themselves, are coming down pretty hard on all the file shareres these days. I've not used anything bit torrent platform, e-mule was the last thing I was in to. Don't do much downloading anymore because of lack of time, not because I'm afraid of these pr1cks. I'm sure there are ways of doing it safely, if not it's only matter of time someone comes up with something better in near future. You know geeks are always cooking up something....

Shareaza uses the bit torrent protocol for file transfer between different computers, but it is not based in this country. This is probably the only reason it is still up and running.
