1. The best DL site that Ive found thats currently up n running is at "kat.ph" typed into your browser bar. Type it just like that, (without quotes) Stay away from piratebay.org and most other sites in my opinion. If your from the U.S., they are watching what your doing. Be it the gov't or your ISP, they ARE watching. Stay safe and don't go overboard on the DL's. 2 week/or 10GB every 2 weeks is a good rule to follow.

2. Best way to avoid viruses is to read the comments that other people have left. Usually if there is no comment, I won't downoad unless its someone u think u can trust.

3. Comments also tell you about whether its good or not.

4. The rule to follow as far as seeding is to do at least a 1:1 ratio. In other words if you DL 1 GB file, turn around and match that. *You don't HAVE to upload at a certain speed though, I usually just do 5kb or so if there is a bunch of other people uploading the same thing. It's not going to matter if there is a mass of people ULing way more than a persons Web speed will allow them to DL. Then its just wasted. Don't help anyone in that situation. Some ISP's like Comcast WILL report u to the authorities if you go overboard and DL/UL too much in a certain time period. That ain't good at all.

Hope I gave some good info.:cool:

Not really.

Paranoid much? KAT has big problems with malware adverts.

And neither the gov or your ISP is watching you. That's an urban myth put around by 'private' tracker admins to drive people to their sites so they can make money. It's just not true.

I don't know you so I'm not going to be an ass as I am to everyone else in life but I will tell you this...YOU ARE WRONG about the ISPs watching you. When I was with comcast they called me after a huge week of downloading. 80GB up/down in 1 week and told me that they had reported me to the FBI's Piracy Act Division (whatever its called). Roughly 2 weeks later they showed up at my door and confiscated my pc. So, no pal, your wrong.

As far as the DL site, if KAT is so bad then why don't you put your 2 cents in and give people some empirical facts instead of just thinkin your right. Another site perhaps. I REALLY hope your not suggesting piratebay. KAT is a site that gets torrents FROM Pirate Bay without the hassle of the site being shut down constantly. Besides that, I run biweekly scans for malware and viruses and I wont try to say that it is adware free,but there is way worse out there. Mininova for one is a fairly safe site but has pretty much nothing I'm ever looking for and the layout of the webpage is crap.

As far as the government shitting all over your freedoms. If you don't see this, your a gullible horses ass. Maybe get your news from somewhere besides one of the stations thats owned by one of these elitists, globalist corporations like NBC.
