    What should I do?

    The reason I'm so concerned is because I have so much more stuff posted. Should I just cancel and sign up with another bank account?

    I'll create a new credit card account before I do that.

    Just make sure you are ready with a new card when they do switch you off, as they will do shortly, and then get another card ready so you are not caught short the next time.

    I'm on my *th account, never changed my name or address yet!

    That will achieve little or no results whatsoever. Almost certainly it is your provider who is monitoring what you're uploading. Thus, any new account with Giganews would be a moot point.

    No it won't be his provider, no way of knowing if he was using SSL anyway, provider won't care, and what if it was off a seedbox to NGs?

    It will be some guy in a suit grabbing & reading the headers of what was posted and reporting that fact to giganews.

    Yeah, it was a message from the BSA in response to some software I uploaded. It wasn't the provider monitoring.

    What about buying a block account somewhere and use that for uploading?

    The last provider I wanna loose is Giganews (I guess I'll get a mail like this some day anyway).

    Someone PMed me about the block account option, but I don't want to pay extra money just to upload for others. I'll just stick to downloading :\

    I just thought you could pay for 10GB (download) or something that never expires and just use it for uploading.
