Re: what about other methods of transfering data? Running p2p allows the entire Internet to upload the content you have downloaded or made available. Depending on the amount and demand for content you have, this could amount to using your max upstream bandwidth 7x24. Hundreds of gigs / month.
Running a private use FTP server so you can get at your home files while away is completely different.
If you made your FTP server anonymous and it contained high demand content (like video, music, porn, etc) and google, many sites linked to it with »ftp://, I think you would make the list of people that an ISP wants to talk to.
