Nope, but I can say that if unless you're an avid collector of Linux distributions or something such as that, odds are you're downloading pirated content. If you read the terms of service you agreed to when you signed up here, you'd see that's not permitted.

I will add that odds are sooner or later something you download will have a nasty little surprise bundled with it, if it hasn't happened already. Viruses and malware tend to spread via the ignorant and the lazy, which happens to make up the overwhelming majority of file sharing program users.

On that note, I would suggest that the moderators lock this discussion unless the original poster can show that they are not downloading pirated goods.

Probably, though I can't claim to know much about the world of Anime. Most of it is copyrighted though, so downloading it without paying for it would be illegal, unless the people who hold the copyright put it up for download on an official site.

Just in general, if you normally have to pay for something -- be it in a store, or by putting up with commercials interrupting an episode -- it is illegal to download it without paying. There might be exceptions here and there, but that's a good general rule of thumb to follow. It'll likely keep you out of legal hot water too.

I agree.

I know little about Anime as well. But I assume that if an Anime creator wants to distribute his creation he will either offer it for sale from his web site, or offer it as a free download from the web site. I might be wrong, but I can't see that any creator would offer their files through P2P.

I am locking this because I am assuming the files you are attempting to download are copyrighted, and are not free. Such discussion about that is forbidden in these forums.

If you feel I am mistaken, provide the evidence to support your case and notify the Moderators through the "Report offensive post" option available under each post.

In the meantime, I would suggest you scan your system for viruses, and other malware.
