Excelman> I am from Canada 2. and what you say pleases me a lot, I kept thinking the RIAA was after us aswell. Anyway, who ever said you shouldnt share files is completley up the wall, even if your in america, just get a fire wall and/or a router (a router, in my opinion, is much better) and this "MUTE" thing. If everyone stopped sharing then their wouldnt be any point to all this anyway.

Btw, you are forced to share with Bit Torrent and such

PS> I have the newest version of Bit torrent, and I wonder, what happend to that share rating thing?

PPS> If you are frightened by this RIAA use irc, its much faster and safer, it just has fewer results.

What if im using a spacific program such as limewire or ares P2P. I mean that works by hosting file through the softwares network. And also, what if im just sending one file from me to one friend spacifically?
