Hey I am thinking about getting an account with Astraweb and I have a question regarding security. I have just got one of those mean little letters from my ISP regarding an item from a public torrent (yes, I know, dumb) But I was wandering if there was a way that Usenet can be tracked by RIAA, MPAA, and the like. And has anyone ever gotten reported to their ISP for only downloading through SSL? I do not plan on uploading anything at all, not even posts, I just want to read stuff and use binaries.
I have done some reading and I have seen the answer is no to both of these, but the posts/articles are dated a couple years ago or so and I was wandering if anything new has come about.
Let me know.
