    Great programs you use

    BSplayer has adware in it now. Pity, but I went for VLC. Also, my recommended software list is here: http://jult.net/warez Really shitty that many of those free ones suddenly charge money..

    Exactly. I've always found p2pnet a lot more objective and thorough. Good interview with Ludvig: http://p2pnet.net/story/8158

    Who says you need private networks for that? Trust me: It IS easy to do. There's nothing really hard about monitoring network traffic, especially not when you already know the location, name and specifics of the program you need to monitor it for.

    "he still refuses to see it", oh really? I would too if it meant having to agree with people like you. ;-) Difference is, you don't help me with my bittorrent use, Ludvig does. So honestly, nobody cares what people like you think of him. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludvig_Strigeus

    What a load of crap. Ludde is just human, and like many of us he has a life next to the internet. There is no way one can 'handle' things the right way when there are so many idiots out there. Give the guy a break already.

    Actually it isn't hard at all, you see the to and from MAC and/or IP-addresses, and parse your logs on those. Sure, it would cost you some time to log traffic and then decrypt it all, but if there's anything which is easy to do on computers these days, it's parsing log-files using easily adaptable scripts. You might want to look into the following story to get an idea on how easy things of such nature are: http://www.securityfocus.com/infocus/1814 If uTorrent would store stuff for a month and then send it only once, you can still see it storing to and reading from disk, even if the position on disk is uncommon and unnoticeable. This is also not hard to detect, decrypt or reveal. What do you think bugtraq or similar groups are doing 24/7 ? Remember what happened to SONY when their rootkit CDs got revealed. Do you think Ludde aspires risking his reputation like that? ;-)

    Yes. Well' date=' clearly you can't. It ONLY sends ANONYMOUS data WHEN you check for an update. Nothing to be worried about. You probably buy new stuff every other day while people you don't know are logging what you bought where and when. Go protest about that on the streets, why don't you? Yes, it does. So you're starting an anti "the operating system I'm currently using" PR campaign as of today? Good luck! Even loads of open source Linux software doesn't mention phoning home, and you're bashing a free software client like uTorrent on the fact that it includes the option to switch it off? You have got to be kidding me. ;-)

    per default certainly does not create increased trust. Can you read? It actually DOES create increased trust, because you are allowed to switch it off. Do you have any idea how much software is on your PC that does the same (or worse) without even mentioning it?

    Nonsense, if it would be as bad as you think, 65% of the internet users would not be using Internet Explorer. In fact, as Bluetick states, they block MicroSoft sites too. One can't run Windows Update when PG2 blocks HTTP (using the bluetick list). Think about the dangers of that! Bluetick forces a lot of users (with less clue) to not be able to run patches on their machines. That's a lot worse than MicroSoft phoning home during an update, or MicroSoft letting some big company send data from your PC. Let me get this straight: Some of those using uTorrent are complaining about an alledged far away link with some former 'anti-ptp' organisation, yet at the same time they're using a MS Windows OS day and night without as much as a worry? Give me a break.

    How hard is it for you fools to understand that Ludde CAN NOT do that without it being noticed? Again: You are FREE to monitor the TCP/IP (and/or UDP) packets going in and out of uTorrent. I (partly) do that for a living, and like I wrote before: uTorrent does NOT do anything out of the ordinary, because when it would, EVERYONE would be able to see it. It doesn't even 'phone home' at each start like so many other software-packages do. The only caveat could be the Protocol Encryption option, which, may I remind you, is in there because users requested it! When switched on it's a little harder to know what uTorrent is sending out, even though it's still easy to see where packets go to, or when it does things out of the ordinary.

    Or, perhaps it isn't a bad sign; luude is showing them the light. If a former anti-p2p group embraces p2p, it does more to help the p2p lobby than anything else. Apparently Slyck has entirely missed this article last year: http://www.mindjack.com/feature/piracy051305.html and this presentation: http://interactive.edu.au/PiracyIsGood-small.mov.torrent (yes, an entirely legal torrent)

    OK, thanks, I just read about it. I'll edit my post, 'cause I like the PG2 concept. The difference between PG and utorrent here is that utorrent would warn me about using lists from 'others'. PG didn't warn me about it, so they get the blame when something like that happens.

    Well then, create a utorrent clone why don't you? Good luck!

    To put the utorrent site in a block list is an insanely stupid move by Bluetack. I'm actually more disappointed in THEM than I will ever be in a piece of software that lets me control everything it does. Can't the bluetack people use ethereal or any such software? What amateurs are they with their unsubstantiated claims? I'm pretty much a vet with ethereal, I study networks and their layers and packages, I audit them, from IPv6 to cracking WPA, and I can assure you; Utorrent does nothing other than what it should do. Plus, it's free (and doesn't even ask me to donate the way Azureus annoyingly started to do), so what is the problem anyway? It's clear to me that it will never charge for anything. It's a project of love and passion from Ludvig and some helpful friends. Ludvig is simply one of the best coders I've seen delivering software, especially considering the memory management and use of resources. He understands the minimalism philosophy like nobody on the planet! Everybody writing such crap about utorrent is jealous and should be deeply ashamed of it. By the way, can't they think about how many people work for Mac Donalds or Wal Mart or any other business that those people didn't really like in the first place. One has to earn a living in this world. Anybody ever seen the movie "Office Space"? Do we all hate the entire population of the United States only because their president is an asshole? Don't think so. Enough said!
  15. I strongly disagree, and sorry, I just don't believe you are being honest. Probably someone involved with other bittorrent software.
