    it's probably a fake. It's kinda weird all people that post those warnings are new members. I haven't seen any senior members posting a mail they got, while they are the ones that are heavy users.

    don't believe it, they're scare tactics...

    Probably fake.......
    Usually they will tell you the file that was in violation and ask you to remove that file from any P2P/File Sharing program that you are using...
    they will also state what network you were using at the time. ie:FastTrack

    Maybe it's an industry stooge trying to alarm us by "fitting in" and asking about the letters.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
