    What are your opinions about getting games from Usenet? Personally, I have stuck with video and audio and am wary of any executable. Am I paranoid or are there ways to know a legit release from lets say a 'knock-off' that contains malware?

    Get your NZB's from trusted sources. This forum is one of those.

    I didn't come over from P2P. Have been on Usenet since the late 90's and only stuck with audio and video pretty much except for some emulation ROM's.

    I have to disagree with this. I can search nzbindex right now and find tons of shady files that I wont go near.

    Its pretty much the same as p2p, get your stuff from trusted sources and your ok, but theres plenty of crap to be downloaded out ther eif you don't know what your doing.

    I personally hate people that hop on the reply button without even reading threads.
