    "avoid private sites which deal in what could be called ‘mainstream’ material, better known as ‘scene releases’..bla bla...Put another way, you could be one of up to 20 million that use the PirateBay, or you are one of 40,000 that use SceneTorrents..bla bla bla..private site has your activities stored..bla"

    tpb has shit speeds. also i havn't heard of a user on a private tracker getting sued although people from tpb have been. I could be missing some facts though as i don't follow btt news too closely

    i'm not sure if it's bad advice or not. you can make the case both for and against it.

    it's true that more people will download from tpb. but at the same time, it would be a lot easier for anti piracy people to get your ip from the pirate bay than a private site.

    it requires a bit of effort to gain access to a private site. especially the higher levels, so it might make more sense for anti piracy groups to bust people from public sites, since they can get a swarm of people all at once.

    in the end, they're business people, and the more people they can extract money from, the better it is for them. it's no secret that the riaa and mpaa could care less about the actual art. it's all about money.

    Far less than 5 % of those who dl torrents do so from private sites; the huge majority use public trackers. I still use TPB and love it.

    That advice do not make sense to me.

    Not bad advice i use btjunkie-mininova-tpb- sometimes, but read their forums-see the ISP letter posts and other public tracks also! A great amount of content but no community really. That is what makes a site-community! Plus depends on your ISP.

    Overall the analysis is pretty on point, if a bit obvious to myself. Aside from that, I don't think he's even on SCT because his numbers are off, so I question whether he is really aware of the security benefits or any of the realities of smaller, better private trackers.

    I, for one, still think it is safer to use a good private tracker.

    lol i took a 2 month temp job working for my ISP. and i found out they don't monitor torrenting. so it don't matter.
