Advice boils down to this:
Stop sharing and download only--preferably dump p2p and use newsgroups. Whther downloading is illegal is still up for debate. But, the bottom line is that Usenet is safe for downloaders.
Do not respond to the email unless you are required to do so.
I've used usenet for downloading since the early 1990s
Never got letters or warnings until I decided to download a full feature movie like Gladiator.
I need to rent more movies and make images :-D
