    I was wondering, is it really necessary for me to install PeerGuardian. Because here is the thing, if the RIAA get my IP, they are gonna tell my ISP about it right?? Well, my ISP has absolutlely 0% of my information. My ISP has NO idea who the hell I am. Heres how I filled out my info when signing up with my ISP.

    Name: hdusfspdvgfdspf
    Address: nfdspufnsfsd
    Phone No: (999) 999-9999
    State: AZ (Im actually in CA)
    Zip Code: 12345

    I've been using the same ISP for a year now.

    Should I really worry? It doesnt seem nessesary to install PeerGuardian, my ISP has the wrong info, and I don't use Kazaa Lite as much.

    Anonominity is great in all forms, though better safe than sorry.

    I take it your not on broadband, since cable has your address. Though I wonder how they would find satallite users.

    DirecWay (or any satellite internet provider) can just simply find you IP address using the signal, then the satellite can easily determine the exact location (in longitude and latitude form) of where your house is at, then from there, it just takes a simple Mapquest.com search.

    That answered my question, I figured as much.
