Thread: IPT and Demonoid being "watched?"

  1. #1
    Someone (who may know about this kind of thing) told me to stay away from IPT and Demonoid. Problem is those are the only 2 trackers i use . Is there any truth to this and is it any cause for concern?

    Thanks for the input.

    Not heard a thing about it... maybe another member can shed some light on it?

    I wouldn't worry too much unless you hear something concrete though, as there are loads of people on the net who 'claim to know things' no-one else seems to

    Both trackers have massive userbases. And the more users a tracker has, the higher the chance some of them are bad apples, i.e. working for anti-P2P companies and such.

    Whether you should worry about this depends on where you live in - if that kind of agencies can't do you any harm in your country, then I guess it's OK. If that isn't the case, make sure you're using some sort of IP filtering, and consider switching to less-populated trackers.

    You can use the demonoid tracker without a membership, so of course some torrents will be watched

    Any recommendations on a tracker I could go after that would fit that bill and offer a similar selection as IPT? I don't even really know what's out there currently. Thanks for any info.

    So anti-P2P agencies actually mean trouble for you? Then SCC and Linkomanija are the only not-so-big ones that I'm a member of. Generally, I prefer large trackers, due to the fact seeding is quite easy on those. I'm pretty sure there are other similar sites whose names escape me.

    Pretty much, a user on TPS confirmed getting a cease and desist letter from a media company from a torrent downloaded on IPT.

    My recommendation would be to stop being so paranoid. IPtorrents and demonoid are the same as ever despite what your expert friend says.

    ^ Definitely.

    If you're too paranoid about it then you should just move on to a different method of file sharing.

    Thanks for the input everyone, i was just curious if there were simple steps I could take that would keep myself relatively safer, I'm not too paranoid or losing any sleep about it.

    Whatup Funkin' I think you're the one who originally hooked me up the IPT invite a couple years back, thanks again and good to see ya.
