    No they won't know, ISP's are not allowed to look at the data you are downloading, but if they look at the data name and its American Pie DVD (like most torrents are called) they can guess at what it is. But basically its near impossible to get caught on NG's.

    I don't think you really understand how newsgroups work, check out the News groups section of this forum and do some googling.

    ISP's always know what you are doing online. Everything you do runs through their servers.

    It is illigal (Invasion of privacy) for ISP's to view the data you are downloading or uploading, at least in the UK it is.
